Kindy opens its doors to community to explore
NUTURE, play and grow.
Three key elements underpinning what Caloundra Community Kindergarten is all about.
Caloundra Community Kindergarten vice president Kellie Morris attended the kindy herself in 1986 and now her two daughters have also attended with her youngest Eddie currently at the kindy this year.
“It’s got a really warm feeling. The teachers have always been fabulous. There’s a beautiful outdoor area and we even have chickens with a hatching program. Kids are so happy to be here and there’s always a variety of things to do,” she said.
Families are welcome to come along, have a play and ask questions and learn about the community kindergarten.
Caloundra Community Kindergarten red group educator and inclusion support Tobi Romagnoli said each year the kindy opens its doors to local high school students studying child care and completing work experience.
“Some walk through the doors and reminisce about the time they were here as kindy children. The most common phrase we hear is ‘so much is still the same except it looks a lot smaller than when I was four’.”
The kindy has positions for 47 children each year with some on the waiting list as young as one week old.
The open day is Saturday, September 8, at 9.30am. The waiting list for 2019-2023 is now open and can be completed on the day or online at www.caloundrakindy.com.au.
NEXT GENERATIOIN: Kellie Morris and son Eddie Morris with Glenda Smith and Kylie Doolan and daughter Isabel Doolan are looking forward to the open day.
