Enrollment

 

Kidstogether™ offers full time and part time positions for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years old. All positions are for the full day which allows families to attend at any time during operational hours.

  • Full Time – children who attend five permanent days (Monday to Friday)
  • Part Time – children who attend one to four permanent days.
  • Extra days – families may request an extra casual day as required, however they are subject to availability as rooms may not exceed their license capacity.

Orientation

Kidstogether™ recognizes that leaving a child for the first time can cause separation anxiety for both the family and the child. Kidstogether™ aims to make this time as comfortable and positive for all involved and strongly encourages all families to participate in the Kidstogether™ orientation process as children need to feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings prior to the commencement of formal attendance according to Kidstogether™ policies. Kidstogether™ offers each family two one hour complimentary orientation visits if necessary according to the classes and programs that kids enroll. These are a great opportunity for parents, family members and the child to become comfortable and better acquainted with the child care service educators and routines.
