Mid-Year Reception: Fees Waived for Terms 3 and 4 2021

Mercedes College is delighted to be part of the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) initiative, which is waiving Terms 3 and 4 fees for 2021 Mid-Year Reception enrolments.

With its play-based curriculum, the mid-year intake prepares children for a full time transition into Reception the following year through age and stage-appropriate learning.

It caters for children with birthdays from May 1 to October 31 and allows them to adapt to school at their own pace in a supportive and positive environment, attending either 3, 4 or 5 days per week.

The mid-year intake offers a wonderful springboard for young students by easing them into the school environment. Our IB Primary Years Programme and inquiry-based approach to learning has been developed to help children transitioning between Kindergarten and Reception by encouraging curiosity through play-based activities. 

This helps develop a strong sense of identity among all the children, as well as an essential foundation in literacy and numeracy. It also helps them feel more confident in their new environment. We then see many of them mentoring and supporting new Reception students the following year.
