Volunteering

In order to make our child-minding service happen, we need your help! We will need parents to volunteer to help ensure adequate supervision of the children for short shifts throughout the day. If you are able to help us with this community initiative, please indicate your availability on the registration form.

Food

We will be providing snacks, however we will not be serving lunch. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, and you will be responsible for storing the food and serving it to your child. Any food brought onto campus must be meat-free and nut-free.

For the youngest ones

If your child is not toilet-trained, please remain with them at all times. While young children are more than welcome to attend, our supervisors will not be assisting with providing or changing nappies.  

To make sure that all children have a safe and fun time, we are committed to upholding the NSW Child Safety Standards.
