  • My twins do two days at kinder 8.30-4 and two days at childcare 8.30-5/5.30 they start school next year. They have always been in for atleast three days while I worked.

  • 2 full days at kindy

  • I ended up having to put my son in day care while I went to work and that was 3 days, school hours. At first I was really worried but he settled in well and although yes it was fantastic to give him a head start for school he also picked up a lot of bad habits that had to be pulled back once he got to kindy. So it has pro’s and con’s and either decision that you make will be the best for you and your child :)

  • 4yo kindy was two mornings, and one full day. 3yo was two afternoons a week. ( From a mum of teens, those were great days!)

  • i agree with eternal angel. its easier for them to grasp it in their mind :-)

  • I started with 3 days a week at age 3.5 then worked it up to 5 days the last few months before school started, found it made the transition to school nice and easy
