For 3-5 year olds we offer a full day programme. The programme operates daily from 8am to 5pm. 3 year olds must attend a minimum of 2 days, and 4 year olds a minimum of 3 days.

Mozarts offers 20 Hours ECE to all children once they turn 3 years of age.

The daily rate can change according to parents’ usage and combinations of other options such as WINZ, and ECE hours already allocated to other providers such as home based nannies etc.

The office will provide a quote for your preferred attendance pattern upon enrolment.
