Kindergarten Sessions

Our Kindergarten is staffed according to sessional attendances. To retain our present staff we encourage families to send their children regularly. The Department of Education & Child Development (DECD) appoints staff in accordance with attendance records from early each term.

Children at Mary Bywaters Kindergarten are able to attend an average of 15 hours of preschool per week.

The 15 hours of preschool occur over 2 full days one week and 2 full days plus 5 hours on Friday the following week.

Our Kindergarten sessions are as follows:

Group 1 - umnuts 8.30am – 3.00pm, Monday and Tuesday plus alternate Fridays 8.30am – 1.30pm, starting week 1 of each term
Group 2 - Desert Peas 8.30am – 3.00pm, Wednesday and Thursday plus alternate Fridays 8.30am – 1.30pm, starting week 2 of each term
All sessions will include a lunch care program where each day your child will bring their own healthy lunch from home. This will be part of our educational program promoting nutritional information and healthy eating.

Please contact the Kindergarten for further information about enrolment.
