Does my child need to be immunised?
The new requirements prevent childcare facilities from enrolling children without immunisation certificates, unless you have a specified exception letter.
What if my child gets sick?
If your child becomes unwell, we will contact you immediately and you will be required to pick up your child within the hour.
We are committed to providing and maintain a healthy environment so please do not send your child to the Centre if they are unwell.

Our programs are displayed for each group.
All families are encouraged to participate and provide input.
What will my child eat?
Kermi’s Kindy provides meals which are cooked fresh daily by our trained cook. Our trained cook has completed her certificate in Nutrition and Menu Planning.
Including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and evening snack.

Our Centre has internal policies and procedures to assist our staff in providing consistent, quality care at all times.
Does the fee change if I am only their part day?
The fees are based on a daily rate therefore remain the same no matter how long a child attend each day.
Do I need to have my child at the centre by a certain time?
Ideally we like children to arrive by 9:30am. This way they do not miss out on the activities planned for the day. Morning tea is from 9:00am so it’s good if they can be included with the group at this time.
