OUR PHILOSOPHY Children begin kindergarten with their own ideas, questions, values, opinions, cultures and family backgrounds. By respecting this, enduring and strong relationships between children and adults can be developed. This enables each child to feel safe, secure, respected, happy and nurtured as an individual. We include all members and respect each child’s rights and dignity within our community. The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Curriculum underpin our play-based programs. Within this nurturing and play based environment, educators will empower and support children’s sense of identity, community, well-being, learning and communication. We believe children’s self-esteem and confidence is integral to all aspects of their learning and development and pride ourselves on offering an indoor/outdoor program that promotes children’s sense of independence. The roles of parents and community members within the program are highly valued. The kindergarten is a parent run centre that values parent support and welcomes members of our community to become involved in our centre. This provides children and their families with a sense of belonging and links strong connections between the kindergarten and home life. Environmental issues are an integral part of the day-to-day learning at the kindergarten, as we endeavour to help the children understand their responsibility to their world. Sustainability is part of our program of our everyday practice. We model, we discuss and we involve each and every child, family and the wider community. Our Kindergarten supports cultural diversity and our Educators have a sound knowledge and the ability to respect, communicate and understand the cultural differences and interact with all individuals fairly and equally. Indigenous perspectives are integrated in the program through stories, art experiences and drawing. To view our Fee structure and Policy, go to the More section on our listing.

Kindergarten Fees Policy


WHY ARE FEES NECESSARY?

The Department of Education and Training  (DET) provides per capita funding as a contribution towards the cost of providing a three (starting 2022) and four-year-old kindergarten program. The service is responsible for all costs.

Fees and fundraising are necessary because there is a shortfall between the level of government funding and the cost of operating a viable kindergarten.

CONCESSION RATES :

A parent / guardian or child who holds a current Health Care Card / Pension concession card or Visa 447, 451, 85, or 786 or Dept Veterans Affairs Gold card are all eligible for 100 percent reduction of term fees . A copy of this documentation must be sighted by the Treasurer or a nominated representative of the Kindergarten prior to the start of each term. Copies can be made at the Kindergarten.
