Parent Information

Priority of Access

In South Australia, children begin kindergarten at the start of each school year and mid-year (after the July school holidays). If your child’s birthday is before May 1st of the year, they are turning four; they’re eligible to start at the commencement of Term 1. All children who turn four after May 1st and before October 31st can attend kindergarten mid-year. For further information on when your child’s Kindergarten year will commence, please visit www.education.sa.gov.au

Playgroup

We love to connect with families before their child starts kindergarten through our Family Playgroup, which runs Friday mornings from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m., Term 2 and 4.

If you have pre-kindergarten-aged children (3 years and above) and want to connect with families in your local community, our playgroup is for you! To register your interest, please get in touch with the kindergarten.

Plans have commenced to have a playgroup for our local community throughout the school year. Continue to watch this space for further information.
