The Australian Government is committed to ensuring that every child has access to a quality early childhood education program. The program is to be delivered by a four-year university-trained early childhood teacher, for 15 hours a week, 40 weeks a year, in the year before full time schooling (often referred to as 'preschool' or 'kindergarten'). The commitment is to be fully implemented by mid 2013.
At Warrawee Park Preschool, we have already committed to providing all of our 4 year old students with 15 hours of Kindergarten each week. This has been implemented with two full days of 7 and a half hours.
