WELCOME TO OUR
"Young children’s learning and development take place in a range of contexts: at home with the family, in non-formal settings in the community, and within formal early childhood education and settings (ECEC). In all of these settings, parents have an important contribution to make."
Here you will find up-to-date Session Times as well as a link to our Parent Information Pack which can also be collected at the kinder. We need the support and communication of all our parents. The kinder appreciates feedback from all parents keeping in mind this is a positive space, and any concerns should be raised at any of our committee meetings.

Throughout the year we have some fun opportunities to raise money for our much loved kinder.
In recent years the money has gone towards:

We have a new ordering system for the kinder uniforms.
All kinder uniforms can now be purchased online. Anytime throughout the year. There is a great range available with some new items that we haven't been able to offer before. The ordering system is up and running. There is a range of sample stock and sizes at the kinder for you to check before you buy.
Please make sure you regularly check the noticeboards and the children's mail pockets in the foyer, as important notices are placed in them. Also, our main form of communication between the teachers and families is through the 'FLEXIBUZZ' App. Please let the teachers know if you are having any problems.
ADOPT A JOB:
The kinder has many jobs that need to be done over the year. So we have a developed an "Adopt a job" program. Most of these jobs can be taken home and done in your own time. This way parents can help out as the jobs arise. In the foyer, there will be a list of jobs that need to be done for the term. If you could pop your name down for any jobs that you can help with.
We are always looking for volunteers/donations to help our busy parents run committees.
