Dates, Times & Events

We offer a Monday-Tuesday class for 48 weeks a year (and you can add your interest for a Thursday-Friday class in 2025).

Term dates for the German Australian Playschool (GAP)

The term dates for GAP the same as for ACT public schools (but GAP doesn’t have student-free days).

During 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.

Session Times

Our daily program runs from 8:30am to 2:30pm 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. We ask parents to be prompt in picking up their children, or late pick up fees apply.

Our staff or babysitters can accompany some children to the Spiel und Sprechen playgroup from 2:30pm and everyone goes home at 4:30pm (subject to interest and availability).
