0830-1130 and 1230-1530 Mondays to Fridays. 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.
The extended day is an ideal programme that affords children a longer day, in addition to their regular morning session, offered singularly or as a combination, with a language immersion programme (from September 2006). The programme involves content over and above what is done, during the regular sessions. It allows the child more time to explore parallel academic activities in the various areas of the Montessori curriculum and, in the case of the language immersion programmes, concentrated exposure to a language. Further, these programmes help a child to adjust to the full day at school he/she would experience in primary school.
