In Garden class children continue to develop essential skills and knowledge in literacy, maths, science and the arts. Children are encouraged to demonstrate the confidence they have developed, both socially and emotionally, particularly when asking questions and sharing knowledge with others.
The Garden class runs from 8am until 11:45am every Monday-Friday. Children can be dropped off anytime after 7:30am and collected anytime before 12pm and will be supervised in the playground by our teaching staff before and after class.
There are two options for Garden students to attend Gecko Garden Preschool for longer hours each day:
- Lunch supervision – students can stay until 1:15pm, for lunch and supervised free-play. Lunch can either be brought from home or supplied for a monthly fee. Families can sign-up for this supervised lunch option on a term-by-term basis.
- Full-day program – students can stay until 2:15pm each day (pick-up by 2:30pm). In addition to lunch supervision and free-play between 12pm-1pm, the full-time Garden students join with the full-time Frog and Gecko students to participate in further play-based learning activities led by our teaching staff.
