2016 kinder open day

News Article Date: 
Wednesday, 18 May 2016

Monday June 6 is Warrnambool City Council kindergarten open day.

Parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet the kindergarten educators, view the facilities and get all the information they need to enrol their child in three or four-year-old kindergarten in 2017.

Children are also welcome to attend open day, which will give them a glimpse at the fun 2017 has in store.

All 10 Council-run kindergartens will be open to the public from 9am-12pm.

Central, City, East Warrnambool and South Warrnambool kindergartens will also be open from 1pm-3pm.

Council’s three-year-old kindergarten program will expand in 2017, with the service to be offered at Mahogany kindergarten in West Warrnambool in addition to Allansford kindergarten.

For the first time, four-year-old kindergarten enrolments can be completed online, making the process more convenient for parents.

Paper enrolments are still required for three-year-old kindergarten.

All Warrnambool City Council kindergartens have achieved an “exceeding” rating under the National Quality standards, the comprehensive set of measures that help families identify the quality of approved education and childcare services.

This year kindergarten staff have implemented the Local Indigenous Language Project into their programs. As a result, the 2017 kindergarten group names have changed, and are now based on Australian animals and birds.

Warrnambool City Council Early Years Learning and Development Service Manager Ebony Grieve said kindergarten introduced children to the joy of learning in a comfortable, fun environment.

“Kindergarten is the first step in a child’s educational journey. It’s also a lot of fun and a great way to make new friends and develop social skills.

“We have a focus on learning through play and ensuring that each child has a wonderful experience that prepares them for primary school.

“Kinder open day is great because it allows children to see just how much fun kinder can be, and it hopefully builds excitement ahead of their first day.

“For parents, it’s a one-stop-shop to ask any questions they have and gather all the information they need to make an informed decision about their child’s kinder enrolment.”

Kinder enrolments will also open on June 6, with enrolment kits available at all kindergartens on open day.

Kits will also be made available at the Civic Centre at 25 Liebig St, the Children’s Service Centre at 600 Raglan Pde and on the Council website from June 6.
