9:00am -12:00pm and 1:00pm- 4.00pm for half day and 9:00am - 4:00pm for full day (Mondays to Fridays). Morning placements require a considerable waiting period. Most new applicants usually secure afternoon placements and are given the option of moving to the morning session when a placement in that session becomes available. Both sessions however are identical in content although children doing a full day would have varied activities in the afternoon.



Placements are offered on application number basis when vacancies are available and the child aged 2 1/2 or older, is found to be emotionally independent to be in school for 3 hours a day. Children who are considered for admission must be toilet trained. Usual intakes are in September and January each school year.



Our Montessori teachers are Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) trained personnel.
