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