Family Involvement

Parents, carers, grandparents, and family members are encouraged to come and spend some time with the children and get involved in the program.

You may want to help with the activities, assist with bush kinder or share a special interest or skill with the group. “Stay and Play” gives you the chance to see what the children have been learning, get to know the educators and spend quality time with your child in a place that is special to them.

There are many other ways for you and your family to become involved in the pre-school.

Working with Children Check

Our child safety policy requires volunteer and visitors who participate with stay and play, bush kinder, or any excursions to hold a valid working with children check. You will need to produce a copy of your valid card to your child’s educator for their records.

Working with child checks are free for volunteers, and can be used in other circumstances outside of kinder. A WWC is valid for 5 years.

Applications can be completed online at www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au
