Obviously they might be at school but if they’re 4 or will turn 4 in this academic year so will start school in Sept 3021.

My DC is doing 2 days a week 9-2.

Thanks smile

My DS is 4 in April, he currently does 4 days 8:50- 2:45 and he loves it. Ive just filled in his school application today for next September 😳

2 days a week 9-3 here, too. He’s almost 4. Tbh, would love to up that another day! grin But he’s incredibly sociable so I have to play with him all day and he doesn’t really do independent play - so it’s quite tiring!

3 days a week at preschool, 9.15-2.45. She is 3 and turns 4 next August and starts school soon after. She was doing two but upped it to 3 as everything is still closed around us, swimming, groups, gym and she seems happier.

DD's Pre school is part of a childcare provision which offers wrap around care (breakfast club and after school for local primaries as well as the pre school) she does 2 x 8:30-5 and 1 x 7:30 - 5:30. Prior to starting there she went to the sister nursery and did the same hours.

School nursery, 9-3:25 Monday to Friday. It's full time hours only, no options for half days etc.

It was last year and pre COVID he did three days 9:15-12:00. In a normal year he would have gone up to four days and two lunch clubs (stay until 14:00) in the term he was 4. Childminder dropped off and collected, preschool was for socialisation and learning how to be in school!

When DD was 4 she did give sessions across 4 days. We started with three sessions, then upped it to four after a few weeks, then five. By the end she did Mon, Tues and Thurs 8:45 - 11:45 and then home for lunch. On Wednesday she did 8:45 - 2:45 and had lunch there. Wednesday was her favourite day. And mine!

DS is starting in January and we're starting off with a couple of sessions, then adding more as he goes on.

Last year 3 days 830-330, 2 days 830-1130. just started reception. Was 4 in August.

Officially 4.5 days but on the days I'm not at work I let her decide if she wants to go or not.

StuntCroissant Wed 30-Sep-20 19:48:53

My DD will be 4 in Nov. She does 7.30am - 4pm twice a week.

DS will be 4 in June and is doing weds to Friday 9-3, previously he was with MIL 8-4 4 days a week, he's still with her the two days he's not at preschool.

mindutopia Wed 30-Sep-20 20:33:00

At 4, mine was in 9-5 5 days a week. She was actually bouncing off the walls every day when she first started school as 9-3 was such a short day and she was fairly under stimulated.

TeddyIsaHe Wed 30-Sep-20 20:34:50

Dd is 4 in January and does 8:30-5:45 3 days a week. Will probably be 5 days a week in the next month or two as my work picks up again.

OverTheRainbow88 Wed 30-Sep-20 20:35:47

5 days a week 9-12, then needs a nap!

My pre school twins do 8-430 three days a week

underneaththeash Wed 30-Sep-20 21:40:29

My DS1 did 4 days 8.25-1.30, DS2 3 days 9-1 and DD 4 days 9-12 and one 9-1.

VirginiaWolverine Wed 30-Sep-20 21:44:23

DD did 9-12 4 days a week. DS is younger, and the school had become mire popular by then and only offered 3 sessions a week.

Wonderwalk Wed 30-Sep-20 21:45:35

My ds does 4 days a week, 2days 9am-3pm and 2 days 8:30-5pm
