Communication book 

Your child will be provided a communication book to help pass on any messages between home and preschool. If you have written a message please tell your child to bring the book to the director to read. It is important for your child to have this book at each visit. 

Library day

On Tuesdays we visit the community library for your child to have the opportunity to borrow books to read at home. We will provide a cloth bag at the start of the year and ask that books be returned each Tuesday, so more books can be borrowed.

Meal times

Our fruit time is 8.45am, recess at 10.45am and lunch at 2.45pm. All children are supervised while they eat their recess and lunch. All wrappers, packaging or remaining food is sent home.

Please read our healthy eating policy (PDF 153KB) for more information.

Occasional care

Occasional care is for children under school age who aren’t in any other early childhood education and care programs, such as preschool, childcare or family day care. It promotes young children’s development by giving them access to high-quality early childhood education.

It may help parents to take part in a range of activities including non-work and casual work commitments.

Priority of access

The education department has a priority of access policy to decide who can get into occasional care. This might mean that some families get more sessions than others.

Talk to us about enrolling in occasional care.

Times

Children generally can go to 1 session a week.
