Enrol your under 2’s on the ground floor in Ski Kindy before heading upstairs to the Nursery on level 2.

  • Your children need to bring their own lunch (morning & afternoon tea is provided), bottles, nappies & a change of clothes. We also recommend sending them along with a favourite toy or blanket to help with the settling in process.
  • When you arrive your child will be given a locker for their bag & each parent/caregiver must fill out a form “My Child’s Day in the Nursery” – this gives the staff vital information to ensure your child has a happy day e.g. sleep time, bottle time, favourite toys & activities etc.
  • Please provide a copy of your child’s immunisation certificate upon enrolment. Children who are not immunised are welcome – however please inform us upon registration. It is a requirement of our Early Childhood License to keep an up to date Immunisation Register.
