On Arrival /Departure at Kindergarten

Signing In and Out: 

Please sign in first thing on arrival and last thing on departure.  Using the maximum of your booked hours enables us to receive the funding which we require to maintain our ratio of qualified teachers.  Up to 10 minutes each side of booked hours is allowed by Ministry of Education without affecting funding.  

Gate:

Please ensure that the entry/exit gate is closed behind you.  Never let any child out of the gate unless you are TOTALLY SURE they are accompanied by their parent/caregiver. 

Settling Children:

As each child has their own unique way of settling into a new environment we aim to work with you to settle your child in a way that is comfortable to both you and your child. Visiting with your child before they start is helpful.

Collection of Children:

If there are any changes at all in people collecting your child please let us know.  Staff will only allow your child to go home with the people specified on the enrolment form.

Finishing:

Two weeks notice is required when withdrawing your child/children from the Kindergarten.
