2022 MEYM Kindergarten Timetables 

(Note: programs subject to change pending enrolment numbers)

Gowanbrae Children’s Centre 2022 Timetable

In 2022, Gowanbrae will be offering 2 groups of 5 hours of 3 year old funded Kindergarten. Families can choose to attend one of the groups of 5 hours.  Due to the funding models children can not attend two funded groups. This will be extended in 2023 so that children will be able to attend 15 hours of 3 year old kindergarten. In addition to this 4 year old kindergarten will offer 2 groups. One group will be 2 x 7.5 hours to cater for those families needing longer days and group 2 will be a 3×5 hour session to finish at 1.30pm. Extended hours will now be offered in the 4 year old program as well as the 3 year old program subject to enrolment numbers.

In preparation for the introduction of the State Funded 3 year old kindergarten programs MEYM will no longer be able to offer ChildCare Subsidy. This is due to Kindergarten programs being funded by the State and CCS is funded by the Commonwealth Government. For families requiring longer days MEYM will be offering an extended hours kindergarten program in the 3yo program and 4yo program subject to enrolment numbers.

Extended Activities Program may run on Fridays subject to enrolment numbers to 3yo and 4yo groups. Cost $590 full day or $295 half day.

(programs and optional extended hours kindergarten program subject to number of enrolments)
