How to enrol
The centre Director will provide you with an enrolment pack which will include the Parent Handbook, Enrolment Forms, Fee Schedule and any other relevant information required.
Our aim is to create a smooth transition from home to childcare by allowing you and your child the time to explore our environment. We do this by having you and your child spend a couple of hours at our centre during orientation to get your child familiar with all aspects of our service. During orientation, we gather as much information about your family, your child, your culture and beliefs through various means and once you feel comfortable, we set an official start date.
Being emotionally prepared for Day 1 at Kiddie Garden
It is an exciting day for our Educators and a new beginning for your child.
It might be a day of anxiety for you, that is natural for all our parents, and you can contact our Educators anytime during the day to see how your child has settled.
We keep you updated and informed throughout the day to help put your mind at ease and we will discuss the different strategies we have developed to make the transition easier on the both of you during the orientation process.
