In the Gecko class, children are encouraged to communicate their interests, ideas and opinions. Early literacy and numeracy are introduced through a wide range of structured and unstructured play activities.
The Gecko class runs from 8:15am until 11:30am 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 Gecko 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 Gecko students join with the full-time Frog and Garden students to participate in further play-based learning activities led by our teaching staff.
