Dates, Times & Events

We offer a Monday & Tuesday immersion class and a Thursday & Friday bilingual class. Children can enrol in one or both of these classes, and this information will help you decide which is best for your child.

Term dates for GAP

The term dates for GAP are the same as for ACT public schools.  During the school holidays, we offer sessions once or twice a week (these are included in the term fees but are optional to attend). The January school holidays sessions are for returning and new students, not graduates.

Session Times

GAP is open from 9:15am so children can arrive any time from then.  Free-play and hand-over finishes at 9:30am when our official sessions start.

GAP sessions finish at 3:30pm.  We ask parents to be prompt in picking up their children, or late pick up fees apply.

Before and After GAP care: If you need childcare between 8:30-9:15am or 3-5pm, you might like to consider a babysitter.  Often GAP families share a German-speaking babysitter who cares for the children at the GAP venue. We can put you in touch with a German-speaking babysitter for Before of After School Care on-site, or help you contact other families who might like to share care arrangements or carpool amongst parents.
