McMurrich Co-operative

Our Program


McMurrich Co-operative Playschool operates five mornings a week from 8:45 am to 11:45 am. Families can choose to attend five mornings (Mon-Fri), three mornings (Mon/Wed/Fri) or two mornings (Tues/Thurs). Our supervising teacher (RECE) is supported by a teaching assistant and duty day volunteer to supervise a maximum of 15 children. With the exception of professional development days (when we remain open), the school observes the same breaks and holidays as McMurrich Junior Public School.

A typical day at McMurrich Playschool

Each daily session follows a loose routine that enables children to familiarize themselves with school life. Each day includes the following:

  • Outdoor play (weather permitting)
  • Bathroom time
  • Snack time
  • Free play
  • Craft activities
  • Circle time including music, stories, games and conversation

Children spend a good portion of the day playing during which they are encouraged to play cooperatively and openly communicate their needs and interests.
