Children should not bring these things:

  • food containing nuts (some children have nut allergies that can be dangerous)
  • unhealthy food or drink (lollies, chocolate, chips, bars or processed food).

Additional information

We have a bush block at the back of our kindergarten which we use in term 2 and term 3. We use the bush block in our curriculum planning to extend children’s literacy and numeracy and to give them the opportunity to explore and play in nature.

Your child’s birthday is celebrated with a play dough cake. They will receive a birthday sticker and can wear a special crown. 

Our making box often needs boxes and bits and pieces. Please speak with us if you have anything interesting or rare to donate.

We have a variety of special events during the year. These include twilight kindy, pancake breakfast, excursions, an annual arts show, Reconciliation Week activities and morning teas to support charities.
