Our Hours and Fees
Lake Okareka Preschool’s timetable is session based with 3 and 4 year olds staying for the morning. Tuesday to Thursday, 4 year olds have the chance to stay on for an extended transition to school session which includes lots of fun projects, trips and more structured activities.
An 8.15am start is available all days, which is great for working parents.
We follow the term dates of the primary school calendar each year and are closed during school holidays.
Parents and whanau are welcome to stay for as long as you like, especially when they are settling in to their new preschool.
20 ECE HOURS are available for 3 and 4 year olds for a maximum of 6 hours per day.

Settling In Children
The initial days of attendance can be unsettling for both child and parent. The teachers will support you both in this transition. Prior to beginning preschool you will be invited to attend sessions with your child to begin the initial transition process if you wish. At the official starting date you are encouraged to stay until your child is happy to be left with the teachers. Preschool is an accredited (July 2015) Breastfeeding Friendly environment to help support nursing mothers while visiting.
