Kindergarten Hours

At Pimpala Kindergarten we offer children 15 hours of preschool each week. Most families choose 2 whole days and one ½ day (but this is flexible for children's needs).

Full Day sessions: Monday - Thursday 8:45am - 2:45pm
Morning Sessions: Monday - Friday 8:45am - 11:45am
Afternoon Sessions: Monday - Thursday 11:45am - 2:45pm

A booking day is held at the end of each year when families can choose their sessions for the following year.

Pre-entry Kindergarten:

Pre-entry will now be provided if time / space in the Kindergarten curriculum.

Please contact the kindy for more details.

Early Entry:

Your child may be eligible for early entry to kindergarten if he or she has a special need such as an identified disability, developmental delay, giftedness or social/emotional difficulties. Parents are welcome to discuss with the Director the possibility for early entry to kindergarten.

Aboriginal children and children who are under the Guardianship of the Minister for Families and Communities may start full time kindergarten at 3 years of age.
