Daily Routines and Schedules

Ba Futuru’s preschool is closed on Timor-Leste government holidays and for two weeks around Christmas and New Years.  Between mid-June and mid-August the preschool will be closed for two months, however a Summer Camp experience will be available.  The Summer Camp may fill up quickly, so please make your plans known at least two months prior to Summer Camp if you intend to enroll your child.

Children in our ECEF participate in a variety of activities in a stimulating classroom with a consistent but flexible daily schedule. Learning opportunities are provided in unstructured and structured formats, small or large groups, and routines such as eating, outdoor play or meeting circles.

Both Daycare and Preschool run full-time Monday to Friday, but are also available for half-days or full-days.
