  • Term 4: 7 October to 20 December**.

*Special note; the first two days of term are child-free (as allocated by the VECTEA – our workplace agreement). So that all groups commence full-time hours simultaneously, Family-Teacher meetings commence Monday, 5 February (week 2), followed by a week of Orientation sessions (week 3) followed by the commencement of full-time hours from Monday, 19 February (week 4).

**Special note; the centre will close for one-two day(s) for all-staff Professional Development. We will provide plenty of notice so impacted families can make alternative arrangements.
