St Martin’s Kindergarten has a playgroup running every Friday. Children can attend Playgroup during Kindy terms. It is open for all families for children from birth to five years of age. Playgroup utilises the kindergarten equipment and resources and with the support of kindergarten staff. Playgroup is a great opportunity for families to familiarise themselves with the Kindergarten facilities and make new friends. Parents are responsible for their own children during the session. Please bring along a hat.

Fridays: 12:30pm to 2:00pm (during school terms)

Fees: $4 per session or $30 per term

Transition to Kindy

At St Martin’s we recognise that starting kindy can be a big change for some children. We currently offer an optional orientation program to help prepare children for their year of full-time Kindy. These transition sessions are available to children in the term before they commence full-time Kindy.
During these sessions, children will become familiar with educators, their surroundings, routines, equipment and other children to help them to feel comfortable and confident in the kindy environment.
The transition program consists of:
One three-hour session per week, for four weeks in the term prior to starting Kindergarten.
If your child commences Kindy in Term 1, transition is held in Term 4 of the prior year (in November). If your child commences Kindy in Term 3, transition is held in Term 2 of that same year (in June)..

Fees: $50


Children are entitled to access 4 terms of preschool in the year before they start school.

Additional Care

We are able to offer some occasional care to children who are enrolled and attending our Kindergarten. This is dependent on spaces and we need to give priority to Kindy children, Please speak to the director to enquire about this.
