Term 2, 2017: Saturday 6 May to Thursday 6 July 2017 (9 weeks)

Special notes:

Stories & Rhymes: No enrolment is necessary. However, only the children who are part of the Early Childhood Centre are able attend the Centre’s session. General public are not allowed to join these. All sessions are fortnightly.

5 year olds: We recommend that 5 year olds start in the Preschooler class format (especially if English is their only language) and only move to the Kids class format when they have been in school Year 1 for about half a year and familiar with NZ primary school classroom environments and routines.

Berhampore and Island Bay School classes: Due to Lizzie going to China for the July school holidays, you will be starting classes on Wednesday 3 May, not 10 May.

Seatoun, Miramar, Karori, Khandallah: We are taking registrations of interest from families with children in these schools as are looking to start something in those areas.
