Our Kindergarten/Pre-Prep is open to children of 3-5 years of age, from 8:25am to 2.35pm.

Unless they are travelling in by Kindy Bus, children are to be dropped off at kindy at 8.25am and picked up by 2:35pm. On special occasions, alternative arrangements can be made.

Child-free preparation time is from 8:00am to 8.25am and 2:35pm to 3:00pm. Staff times are 8:00am to 3:30pm, with preparation time being mentioned above.

The centre operates on the same days as the school year. This means Koobara is closed over school holidays, public holidays and Student Free Days. We are open 5 days a week and operate two 5-day fortnight groups.

The week is split into 2 groups:

  • Monday, Tuesday and every second Wednesday
  • Every other Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • Group sizes are 22 children in each group

We operate a full-day program; therefore, children must have a rest during the day. Rest time is from 1:00pm to 1.45pm. All children are required to rest (unless parents pick them up before rest time). Therefore, all children must bring a sheet in a sheet bag, and ALL your child’s belongings are to be marked with their name.
