What not to bring

Birthday cake

We celebrate the children's birthdays by singing "Happy Birthday" and giving them a certificate and balloon. Please do not send cakes or lollies on birthdays as this conflicts with our Healthy Food policy and can cause problems for children with food allergies.  

Parent involvement

We welcome and appreciate parent involvement in our kindergarten. Children's learning involves a partnership between educators and families. Parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's learning. Parental involvement is connected with positive educational outcomes for children. Parent are encouraged to discuss with educators how they can be actively involved in their child's learning at kindergarten. Perhaps you have a skill or interest, e.g. cooking, gardening or music, that you may like to share with the children. You may enjoy spending time with children by reading a story or at the beginning of the session, joining in with special events, excursions, assisting with our Inquiry Learning focuses, volunteering to be on our laundry roster, assisting with packing up and cleaning at the end of the day or helping with our End of Term clean ups.

Please let a staff member know if you are interested. Your contribution to and participation in our program is most welcome.

Those wishing to volunteer on regular basis will need to have a DCSI Criminal History Screening, a volunteer induction session and fill in a volunteer agreement form.
