There will be additional costs for excursions and special events held at the kindy. Speak to us if you have difficulty paying.

What to bring

Children need to bring these items each day:

  • bag
  • change of clothes
  • healthy snack on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
  • healthy lunch on Tuesday and Wednesday
  • healthy lunch on Thursday if attending Occasional care.

Put the healthy snack and lunch in 2 different containers. The healthy snack will stay in your child's bag and their lunch will go in the big box near the front door.

Children should wear comfortable and old clothes so they can get dirty. Their shoes should be sturdy and firm.

Sunscreen should be put on your child before they come to kindy. We will re-apply after lunch.

Please write your child’s name on all their belongings.

What not to bring

Children should not bring these things:

  • food containing nuts (some children have nut allergies that can be dangerous)
  • unhealthy food (lollies, chocolate, chips, muesli bars)
  • drink bottles (we have filtered water available to children at all times)
  • hats (we will give your child a hat when they are enrolled).
