Session Times

Moana Kindergarten offers 15 hours of preschool that is five sessions for children in their eligible year which is the year prior to their school entry.

Children need to be four years of age to attend kindergarten.

Moana Kindergarten is a full time Kindergarten and offers preschool sessions on Monday to Thursday and Friday morning. Children are offered either morning or afternoon sessions or a combination of both. Children can also access a full day of kindergarten and three half day sessions depending on availability.

Priority of Access

Preschool enrolments vary over time. During the past few terms parent/caregivers have indicated a need for clear guidelines on enrolment criteria when our preschool numbers are high.

Our ceiling is determined by the preschool centre capacity and current staffing levels. Our current ceiling is 62 children.

This system of Priority of Access will be used whilst we have difficulty finding places for children wishing to attend.

Please feel free to speak with the director at the preschool to discuss our Priority of Access criteria further.


Morning Sessions 8.30am – 11.30am, Monday to Friday
Afternoon Sessions: 12.00pm – 3.00pm, Monday to Thursday
Full Day Sessions: Monday to Thursday

Parent Information

Governing Council:

The role of the Governing Council is to oversee the running of the Kindergarten. It is comprised of parents, staff and interested members of the community. Meetings are held monthly to discuss educational, financial and maintenance matters which are of concern to the Kindergarten.

The Governing Council also plans events and organises fundraising to ensure the financial viability of the Kindergarten. All parents are encouraged to become involved in this process.

Policies:

Sun and Heat Protection: Children are required to wear a sun safe hat in Term 1 and from 1st September to the end of term 4. Children who do not have a sun safe hat during this time will play inside. Hats will not be lent due to spread of head lice. In summer sunscreen should be applied to children prior to attending their kindergarten session. Please ensure that clothing has covering for shoulders - NO shoe string straps or tank tops.

Healthy Eating: Please send nutritious food for snack time. Cake, lollies, chocolate, sweet biscuits are not recommended. If perishable food is sent please name the item or container and place in the fridge. Children do not share snacks. Due to some children's strong and often life threatening reactions to nut products including peanuts, nutella or peanut butter they are not suitable for children's snacks. Please provide a water bottle for your child to drink during sessions. Filtered water is also available. No soft drinks or cordial please.

Grievance: Any issue you have with a child, parent or staff member at the kindergarten needs to be resolved through discussion. Please request our grievance policy pamphlet for procedures and make time with a staff member to discuss your issues.

Health Issues: Parents are responsible for keeping staff aware of any health issues. Staff will administer basic first aid if necessary. The Kindergarten reserves the right to ask parents to take a child home. It is important to keep your contact numbers up to date, and communication lines, especially mobile phone accessible.

Lunch Program: Children using this program stay all day and are supervised over lunch period by a staff member. The program has a limit of 10 children and may have a waiting list.
