For children aged under 3 years there are 3 different lengths of day options available; a full day, 8 hour day (8am to 4pm) or a 6 hour day with flexible start and finish times. There is a minimum of 2 days per week that your child should be enrolled at Kindy Cottage for settling in purposes.  After a period of 4-6 weeks, enrolment should be increased to a minimum of 3 days per week as anything less usually unsettles a young child.
