WELCOME TO OUR
"Young children’s learning and development takes place in a range of contexts: at home with the family, in non-formal settings in the community, and in 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 parents to survive as an important part of the community. 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.

Up Coming Events:
Throughout the year we have some fun opportunities to raise money for our much loved kinder.
During 2018 our amazing fundraising comittee worked hard to raise $4500 and we purchased
- some amazing new play equipment
- water wall to add to our outside water play area
- and we have saved money to put towards renovating the front carpark with asphalt and raised garden beds.
This year we aim to raise the same if not more and we hope to put it towards the 4 year old excursion to the Kew traffic school and some more amazing equipment.
We have been lucky enough to receive funding for inclusive sensory fairy garden, with wheelchair access, which is now complete.
