Stepping Stones 0-4 Years Program

The Stepping Stones to Kindy program  will be held in Room 1, in the early childhood area every Monday morning from 8:30am to 10:30am.

The program will only be held during school term times and commences in Term 1, Week 3 and concludes in Term 3, Week 4.

A contribution of $50 per family, per year is requested to participate in this program.  The school does not receive government funding for this program, therefore, the contributions received will help pay for the consumables used each week by the children.

Students will need to bring with them each week a hat, change of clothes, drink bottle and a piece of fruit to share.  Tea and coffee facilities are available to parents for a gold coin donation on the day.

Come along and meet other parents and children.  You will be required to help your child with the activities of the day, guiding them to participate in all activities and encouraging him/her to interact with other children. If you need assistance please feel free to ask. You are asked to supervise your own child at all times.

Each week as you arrive, please sign the attendance register at the front door next to the fruit basket and gold coin donation box.

Stepping Stones is for you and your child to enjoy.  So if you have any ideas, suggestions or skills you can share for future sessions please share them.  We want to provide a program that meets the needs of parents and children.

Please ask any questions and give feedback, we are only too happy to help.
