What to bring
For a fun packed day at Preschool your child will need the following packed in a backpack:
Hat : You will receive a Preschool hat at enrolment and you are encouraged to leave this at Preschool. All hats must be wide brimmed, sun safe.
Spare Clothes : Fun can be messy so please pack a spare set of clothes for your child. In line with our Sun Safe Policy shirts/dresses must have sleeves.
Food: please pack a healthy morning tea and lunch (e.g no lollies or chips). No nuts or nut products are to be included due to allergies. For morning tea bring a piece of fruit to share and a healthy snack for your child. Cold water is available all day.
PLEASE LABEL EVERYTHING WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME!
