Bullsbrook com­mu­nity kindy

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

PAR­ENTS with chil­dren turn­ing four be­fore June 30 have been re­minded to en­rol their chil­dren in kinder­garten.

Swan Hills MLA Jes­sica Shaw said chil­dren needed to be en­rolled be­fore July 20.

“Bullsbrook and Mt He­lena both have com­mu­nity kinder­gartens,” she said.

“They are lo­cally run, have fan­tas­tic fa­cil­i­ties and of­fer sup­port­ive, nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ments to as­sist kids grad­u­ally make the tran­si­tion to school.

“I know a num­ber of par­ents don’t feel com­fort­able send­ing their child to kindy at big­ger schools. Com­mu­nity kinder­gartens pro­vide a great al­ter­na­tive and fo­cus on play-based learn­ing in a safe en­vi­ron­ment.”

Ms Shaw said many par­ents were not aware of the cut-off dates.

“In­suf­fi­cient en­rol­ments may mean that our lo­cal com­mu­nity kindies can­not run next year,” she said.
