Our Community

Parent involvement

We believe that parent involvement in kindergarten is important to your child’s development and education. Whether you work, or are at home, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved during the day, at night or on the weekends.

You can help in many ways from joining our committee, helping to run and attending our social and fundraising events, attending our working bees and participating in ‘stay and play’.

Upcoming events

Check your emails or information pockets for more information about our upcoming events including location details and how you can register your attendance.

Donations welcome

As a not for profit organisation our kindergarten relies on the additional income generated through fundraising, grants and donations. If you’d like to support our kindergarten and make a tax deductible donation, please contact us.
