How to prepare your child


  • Bring your child to the interview to meet their teachers

  • Bring your child to the orientation play morning in January

  • Be familiar with this handbook

  • Read the Welcome to Kindy booklet prepared especially for the children.

  • Talk about kindergarten in a positive way; for example discuss things they might do, such as painting, blocks etc.

  • Use your child’s teachers’ names when discussing kindergarten. Please note the teachers like to be called by their first names; no “Miss”. Thank you.

  • Familiarise your child with lunch containers (and practice how to open them), their hat, their bag etc.

  • Encourage your child to be independent and self-sufficient, eg: carry their own bag, putting on their own shoes etc
