What to bring

Children need to bring these items each day:

  • bag
  • change of clothes
  • drink bottle containing water
  • healthy morning snack (such as fresh fruit, cheese, crackers, carrot, celery)
  • packed healthy lunch.

See our tips for packing your child a nutritious and waste-free lunch and help us minimise food and packaging waste (PDF 61KB). Our afternoon fruit and vegetable snack is provided by Foodland, West Beach.

Your child will explore and create at kindy, so make sure they wear clothes they can get dirty in. Their shoes should be suitable for running and climbing.

We will give your child a kindy hat.

Please write your child’s name on all their belongings. We have a lost property box on the blue shelves on the verandah.

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, biscuits, roll ups, cordial, fizzy drinks)
  • toys from home
  • super hero clothes.

We prefer your child doesn't bring yoghurt as it is easily dropped and spilled.

Additional information

We use the Skoolbag app (PDF 13KB) to communicate with you. Don't forget to check your child's information pocket for notes which may require your signature.

We have literacy packs for you and your child to borrow. Please record your child's name and the pack number you are borrowing.
