  • Minimum: A child must be enrolled in Pre-Primary and have turned 5 years of age. The service can determine whether the child is deemed too immature 
  • What is considered enrolled at the start of the year? – A child can attend in the January school holidays of the year they are enrolled in Pre-Primary, even though they may not have attended school yet, as long as they have already turned 5 years old.
  • Maximum: We cater for children in Primary School from Pre-Primary to year 6; occasionally a child may be deemed to be too old to attend at 11 – 12 years old, this is dependent on their level of maturity; once a child has reached year 7, or has turned 12 years old, the service will determine whether the child can still attend.
