Hours of Operation


St Mary’s Community of Learners operates between the hours of 7:15 am and 5:45 pm, five days a week, 50 weeks per year. The centre is closed for public holidays and two weeks over Christmas and New Year. Children paying a full time rate are entitled to attend the Centre any time between these hours. When emergencies delay you, we ask that you contact the centre so that we can reassure your child. Please note late fees apply for children who are collected after 5:45 pm – $5.00 per minute.

The preschool program ‘Kangaroos’ for four year olds operates from 8.30-11.30am Monday to Friday as part of the educational program in the centre. Children must turn 4 by 30 June of each year to attend the Kangaroos program in that year. As children turn 4, they are eligible to commence the preschool program. An extra charge of $50 per term is charged for stationery and resources for children to attend Kangaroos.
