What is the orientation procedure?
We understand that for children, who join us at Kindamindi, it may be their first experience away from home and some children may feel uncertain about starting a new experience in a new environment. As all children are unique, so too are their settling in patterns. We are happy to meet your child’s individual needs and provide orientation strategies designed for you and your child.
When do children move to other rooms?
They progress when they are developmentally ready in all areas, so there is often an overlap of age groups in each classroom. As we have strict limits of maximum numbers of children in each classroom, sometimes moving up is also limited to spaces being available in the next level room.
Will I be charged if my child is away sick?
Yes, normal fees will apply.
