Our day

We have morning sessions every weekday, except holidays. 

Session times are from 8am to 1pm Monday to Friday during school terms. An optional afternoon class is available from 1pm till 2.45pm. Each Friday we celebrate Shabbat, with children taking turns to perform the roles of Ima and Abba at the Shabbat table.

The Kindergarten is closed on New Zealand public holidays and Jewish holidays. To compensate for this we start our term earlier in January than the school terms and we don't have any teacher only days like some other preschools and daycare centres do. If you have any questions about our opening dates please contact us.
