Do we need to be living within a specific catchment area to attend Staverton?
No. Enrolment at Staverton is not governed by “catchment areas”. We have children attending from surrounding suburbs and further afield.
Do you have an Open Day ?
An Open Day is held in June each year and is a great way to see the Kindergarten facilities and speak to the Teachers and Educators. The 2019 Open Day will be held on Saturday, June 8 from 9.00am to 10.30am.
When and how do I register my child?
Staverton Kindergarten has a wait list for enrolments. You can apply for Wait list registration by clicking on the link below or visiting the Kindergarten during office hours.
When will I know if my child has a place at Staverton?
An Offer of Place email is sent in August indicating that there is a position available for your child to commence Kindy the following year. Upon receiving an Offer of Place, a Confirmation of Enrolment is returned to Staverton (with a $150 holding fee.)
What happens next?
Upon accepting the position offered you and your child are invited to attend an information night and an initial interview with the teacher during October/November allowing both parents and the enrolled child to meet their teacher prior to commencement and understand fully what preparations need to be made to make the transition a positive one. Please be sure to notify us of any email address change so we can contact you to let you know when a place is available.
How many days will my child attend?
Each child attends a five day fortnight. This means your child will either attend on Mondays, Tuesdays and every alternate Wednesday or Thursdays and Fridays and every alternate Wednesday from 8.30am to 2.35pm. This means they attend 15 hours a week as required by the Queensland Government.
