Further information

  • Children must be fully toilet trained and be able to use the toilet independently before starting at the centre.
  • New children start kindergarten when spaces become available as one child leaves for school. This means that your child may not necessarily start kindergarten the day they turn 3 years of age.
  • A more in depth information booklet is available when your child is given a start date.
  • Your child’s identification (Passport or birth certificate) and immunisation records are required for inspection on or before their first day of attendance.
