Holiday & Daily Timetable Schedules

Our most recent holiday schedule and daily timetable schedule for this year have both changed. Please contact us regarding the latest changes. Such information is conveyed only during your initial consultation with us. If you don’t hear it directly from us – it’s not current!


Trial Days

Whilst we understand that you may like to know in advance that you have chosen the best school for your child, we find that a trial day is not an adequate gauge of the rich experience your child will have as a pupil at BKI. Your commitment to one month will assist your child to accept your well- considered choice of school. Your child will learn how new (and sometimes scary!) challenges can develop into the most rewarding of experiences.

We have been in the business of child care for many years now and currently have more than 35 years of combined professional childcare experience among our staff, so just as we hope you can understand us, we do understand you and your concerns. We are here to listen and hopefully we can be considered as open minded people. We would love to invite you to an interview to discuss your concerns in detail.  

Upon request, if you choose a 9.30am interview time slot, your child can experience "Park Play" with BKI kids. Park play is usually held at 10.45 am (so long as it's not raining) Please feel free to mix with the children and ask any of the staff on duty any questions that you may have. We feel sure that you and your child will feel very much at home after this experience.
