Parents are always welcome and are encouraged to be involved within the kindergarten. Assistance can be given in a variety of ways, some of which includes being part of the Governing Council, reading stories, cooking with the children, preparing materials for activities, sharing a special talent e.g. music, dance, assisting with fundraising events, gardening and excursions.
