Our Session Times
Your child can come to our kindergarten for up to 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday, during our 4 kindergarten terms.
You can read more here about what's been happening in our archive of stories about Kidsfirst Kindergartens, the fun we have, the processes and learning outcomes that result and why we're such a great start for your child.
Our days follow a regular routine, with time set aside for a number of activities. Detailed below are examples of the key focus times. For more information about the daily routine and kindergarten policies, please see our notice board inside our kindergarten or talk to one of our teachers.
Children are welcomed to together times before morning tea and after lunch. These are fun interactive experiences that enhance and develop children's learning.
We see this as a social experience. Children are supervised at all times.
This part of our day is where we encourage children to help put equipment away, wipe tables and generally tidy up. We appreciate any assistance from parents – please let us know if you would like to help.
Our kindergarten practices sustainability - we have our own vegetable garden, pets, wormery, composting, and recycling.
We have a collection of books, videos and pamphlets on parenting issues as well as children’s growth and development. These are located near the kitchen in the children’s book area. Please record any items that you borrow in the notebook, and return them in 2 weeks
Lost property box is kept in a basket inside the entry door.
We celebrate your child’s 5th birthday at the farewell mat time with a diploma and a dough cake, which s/he helps to make at kindergarten.
What Food To Bring
Children staying all day need two named lunchboxes. Those children staying a half day, need just one named lunchbox. The teacher will share with you on the first day where these are to be stored. We encourage healthy eating.
Nut Free Zone
Don’t forget that our kindergartens are nut free zones, so please check that all items do not contain any traces of peanuts/nuts.
