Mount Zion Early Learning Centre offers both a Long Day Care and a School Term program for children aged between 2 and 5 years.

Families can choose between our two programs:

  • Long Day Care – which operates continuously from January to December. Operating Monday to Thursday 8am to 5:30pm and Friday 7am to 3pm
  • School Term  – which operates for approximately 40 weeks each year over 4 terms, corresponding with school terms at Moriah College. Operating Monday to Thursday 8am to 4pm and Friday 7am to 3pm

Our centre is closed on Yom Tovim and public holidays.

Both our Long Day Care and School Term program have the same quality teachers and curriculum and are taught in the same rooms together. Those children in the School Term program do not attend during the school holidays.
