“How soon can we start?”

Our programme is designed for the final year before Primary.
A new class group forms every September, made up of four-year-olds and children turning four by December 31.

*Three-year-olds who miss the December 31 cut-off can apply for admission, subject to available space and our assessment of their readiness.
