We offer a Monday-Tuesday class for 48 weeks a year (and from 2025 also a Thursday-Friday class).
Term dates for the German Australian Playschool (GAP)
The term dates for GAP are approximately the same as for ACT public schools (for example, where ACT schools have student-free days on week 1 of each term in 2024, GAP will be open for its children as normal). During the school holidays, we offer sessions 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 children who have graduated the previous December.
Our daily program runs from 8:30 to 2:30 on Mondays and Tuesdays.
- Children are welcome to arrive from 8:30am.
- Children should have arrived by 9:30am when Morning Circle starts.
- Class finishes at 2:30pm and children are collected from playschool.*
- Our staff or babysitters can accompany some children to the Spiel und Sprechen playgroup from 2:30pm and everyone goes home at 5:00pm. (subject to interest and availability)
*) We ask parents to be prompt in picking up their children, or late pick up fees apply.
