Parent Play and Stay
PARENT PLAY AND STAY
Because we understand the importance of the first 1000 days of a child’s life, we support parents with children under two years of age through a parent play and stay playgroup.
Infants and their parents join our weekly play and stay sessions, using our dedicated specialist curriculum classroom. They have access to our specialist staff and are able to meet and socialise with other parents, forming strong social networks in the community.
Because infants are familiar with Kakapo Creek and feel safe here, having played with their parent and knowing our teachers, they then adjust quickly and seamlessly into our centre when they turn two.
Why no full time care for under two year olds?
Because we understand the importance of a child’s first 1000 days we only enrol children over two years of age.
From two years of age children are placed in family styled classrooms that are the best fit for their unique personality and maturity levels.
We use constant caregivers so there is no changing teacher and classrooms on a child’s birthday. Research shows that this is best for children’s emotional and social development.
Children may be enrolled part time or full time.
