The total hours of teaching are 22 hours and 30 minutes per week.
We encourage children to be punctual because:
- it teaches children that it is important to be on time
- it gives the children opportunity to start their day calmly with a chosen activity
- it avoids the emotional stress that children feel when they are late into class
- it does not disrupt school
Children who are on time have better opportunity to engage happily in learning.
Children who are on time experience and build stronger friendship circles.
