Community Kindergarten what does that mean?
While we are affiliated with C & K, our Kindergarten is managed by a Committee of parents/carers. This includes the administration of the centre, staffing, and the financial budget. All parents/carers are welcome to nominate at the AGM to hold a position on the Committee. All committee members require a Blue Card.
Do you welcome parents/carers to become involved in the program?
Parents play an important and valuable role in the education of their child, and your involvement is welcomed. Parents can help in a variety of formal and informal ways such as volunteering for parent roster or excursion, supporting and encouraging your child’s efforts at kindergarten, and by saving materials for use in the program. We welcome your support for various activities organised by the Parent’s Club and Management Committee including social activities, fund raising and the maintenance rosters. We also love to have parents to share their skills and interests in the education program for example, cooking, craft, sewing, gardening, music, talking about your job for e.g.emergency services, armed forces, artist.
