What do I need to know?
By choosing to enrol your child at McDougall Park Community Kindy you are opening a world of wonder. As soon as you enter our natural, tree shaded outdoor space you can see and feel the difference. The choice is yours to make.
See below for answers to some frequently asked questions.
We cater for children who turn four prior to June 30 in the kindergarten year or turn five in the second half of the kindergarten year. Children born between 01/07/2016 and 30/06/2017 are eligible to attend in 2021.
Who can enrol?
We do not have a restrictive catchment area and have previously had children enrolled from far and wide who didn’t want to miss out on the McDougall Park experience. Preference is however given to those living in our local community.
Our community kindergarten contributions have been set at $450 for 2020. This is inclusive of an amount to cover incursions and all other supplies throughout the year. There is no list of stationary items required to be purchased by families. We do not have a mandatory uniform, which means there are no compulsory additional costs associated with uniform purchase. For those that choose we have kindy t-shirts for available for purchase.
Standard class times are 9 am to 3 pm. Students attend five full days per fortnight. In 2020 classes are running daily with children attending Mondays, Thursdays and alternate Wednesdays or Tuesdays, Fridays and alternate Wednesdays. Many of our families have older children attending school at a different physical location. We understand that you can’t be in two places at once and are flexible with drop off and pick up times to ensure younger siblings don’t miss out on the McDougall Park experience.
Where to after McDougall Park?
McDougall Park is the perfect environment to enjoy kindy prior to entering the more formal schooling environment.
The choice of school after kindy is entirely up to you. Our link school is Curtin Primary School, however you are not locked into a specific school by attending McDougall Park Community Kindy. Some parents are apprehensive about the fact the entire group does not move to pre-primary together. It is our experience that this rarely creates problems for our children and that our children typically move to pre-primary with at least one other kindy classmate.
If this is concern for you feel free to contact us and we can put you in touch with someone who has personally been through this experience.
