Session times and dates

Term dates for GAP

The term dates for GAP are the same as for ACT public schools.  During the school holidays, we offer optional sessions once or twice a week (these are included in the term fees). The January school holidays sessions are for returning and new students, not graduates.

The exact term dates are on the GAP Fees page.

Session Times

GAP is open from 9:15am so children can arrive any time from then.  Free-play and hand-over finishes at 9:30am when our official sessions start.

GAP sessions finish at 3:30pm.  We ask parents to be prompt in picking up their children, or late pick up fees apply.

If you need childcare between 8:45-9:15am or 3-5pm, you might like to consider a babysitter.  Ask us for our list (which includes some of our teachers) if you don’t have a babysitter already, or ask us to put you in touch with other families who might like to share care arrangements.

Running late at pick up time?

Late pick up fees are charged as follows:

  • $20 after the first five minutes and up to 15 minutes.
  • $20 for every additional fifteen minutes or part thereof.

If you are unavoidably detained and/or require one of your emergency contacts to pick-up your child, please phone the Playschool. Please add the Scout Hall phone number to your phone contact list:  6257 7323.

You can organise with another GAP parent to sign your child out and look after your child until you arrive. Arrange this with the other parent in advance, add them to your enrolment form as an authorised pick up person, exchange mobile numbers with them, and avoid late pick up fees.
