Arrival at Kinder

The kindergarten environment provides a wide range of learning opportunities for all children. Experiences may be planned or incidental but children are invited to explore, experiment and discover in our beautiful and stimulating spaces.

Our experienced Educational Team offer a variety of teaching strategies to build each child’s confidence and self-esteem.


Establishing secure and trusting relationships with children and their families is a key priority.

Drop off/Pick up

Children enter via their room doors, where they then place their bag in their designated locker.

Snack/lunch boxes and drink bottles remain in bags.

Please give children responsibility for this routine when possible.

Children are then encouraged to wash their hands before play.

It is important to be on time to collect your child or they may become anxious.

Please inform us if you are going to be late so we can so we can reassure your child.


Attendance book

An attendance ipad is located within the foyer. Please make sure you sign your child in and out at every session. These are important requirements under the regulations that apply to all kindergartens.

If someone else is dropping off or picking up your child, please make them aware of the above procedure.

Please also let them know about no parking or turning in the kinder driveway and remind them to close kinder gates for the safety of all children.

Our policy requires a person over the age of 18 to drop off and pick up your child.

Thank you for your cooperation.



On enrolment parents are required to nominate people authorised to collect their child.

To add someone to the authorised persons list please speak to your child's teacher.

In the case of a play date or other reason for temporary authorisation, a yellow permission slip is available near the Attendance book. Please complete and hand this to a Teacher.


Settling in

Our 'Staggered Start' timetable at the beginning of the year means that the children attend in smaller groups for a shorter amount of time.

This enables us to easily establish secure, nurturing relationships and to quickly deal with any separation issues that may occur. Children need to feel safe and happy to effectively learn and develop; we aim for an environment where this happens.

The Parent Survey is a great way for you to provide feedback to the kindergarten.


A sense of ownership is encouraged as the children make choices and decisions; we promote independence and problem-solving whenever possible.
