Fees

Our parent contribution is $75 per term. See our enrolment and fees page for more information.

What to bring

Children need to bring these items:

  • bag
  • hat
  • change of clothes
  • drink bottle containing water
  • morning snack (fruit, vegetable or dairy only)
  • packed lunch for Monday and Tuesday
  • library bag (1 day a week).

Children should wear old clothes with easy fastening so they can get dirty and go to the toilet by themselves. Their shoes should be suitable for running and climbing.

We encourage children to be independent. If your child prefers their fruit cut and peeled, please do this at home and send food in containers they can open. Children should unpack their own bag.

Please write your child’s name on all their belongings. Use a capital letter for the first letter of their name and lower case for the remaining letters. This will help your child’s literacy development.

Lost property is put in the box near the lockers.

What not to bring

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, fizzy drinks)
  • toys from home.

Additional information

On Monday and Tuesday we provide lunch care for children. There is no cost. During lunch we talk to the children about healthy eating and promote independence and self-help skills.

On Tuesday we visit Renmark West Primary School to borrow books for home reading. Your child should bring a library bag that will fit children’s picture books. The library bags are put in the yellow crate by the bag lockers.

Please speak to us about the school your child will go to. You will need to get an enrolment form from the school and enrol your child by June of the year before they start school.
