Children in Blossom Tree Nursery and the school nursery attend school for 15 hours. Within Blossom Tree Nursery, there are a range of flexible options for parents to choose from including, all morning, all afternoon, the first half, or second half of the week.
Children in Nursery attend school for 3 hours in the morning or 3 hours in the afternoon. There are 5 hours and 15 minutes of teaching time each day for children in the Early Phase, Middle and Later of Phases of Learning.
We ask parents to ensure that children do not come to school before 8.30 am as from that time the playground is supervised by a member of staff.
A request to withdraw a child during a school session must be made either in writing or by personal visit. If a child is going to be absent from school, we ask parents to notify the school on the morning of the absence providing information about the reasons for this absence. If a child is absent after the registers have been closed, parents will be contacted by the school asking about the reasons for the absence.
