Please speak with us if your child has a security toy. Your child is welcome to share interesting things they may find in nature, such as nests, shells, insects.

Additional information

Lunch care is part of our kindy program. We will support your child as they eat their lunch. During lunch we talk about 'everyday' and 'sometimes' foods.

During the year we have pupil-free closure days. We will let you know in advance when these will be.
