About Our Kindy
A colourful history.
A bright future.
Hazel Orme Community Kindergarten continues its long and valued tradition of helping kids reach their full potential with play-based learning experiences to develop independence, confidence and a love of learning for a sound preparation and transition into pre-primary school and beyond.
Built for enquiring minds.
With our spacious and well planned outdoor area ideal for adventurous and inquisitive minds to play and explore, Hazel Orme Community Kindergarten is the perfect place to enjoy kindy and a great transition from home to the more formal school environment.
A fun and nurturing place for all.
A strong partnership with the school and regular contact with the teacher makes sure your child gets the best start to school. Hazel Orme actively encourage family members’ involvement during the school day to share with us their knowledge and special skills It is also a great opportunity to observe your child’s progression throughout the school year.
Play, learn, grow.
Through play, Hazel Orme’s friendly and experienced staff promote a hands-on, active learning environment that is carefully planned to encourage developmental growth in the areas of language, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Records are kept of all the kids' work, with a folio of activities prepared and sent home at the end of each semester, along with a brief report of progress made by each individual child.
What is Community Kindy?
As a member of the Community Kindergartens Association of WA, the Department of Education supports us with an operating grant, the employment of teachers and education assistants, while the day-to-day running of the kindergarten is managed by a parent committee in collaboration with the teaching staff.
This is a paragraph that talks about how the kindy is managed and support by the community (of parents). Should mention things like the board, fund raising, donations and end on events (with the button at the bottom heading to the events page).
We do not have a restrictive catchment area, though preference is given to those living in our local community. We cater for kids who turn four prior to June 30 in the kindergarten year, or turn five in the second half of the kindergarten year. You can use the Department of Education’s school age calculator to determine when your child can start school.
Voluntary contributions are set by the WA Department of Education. Additional contributions may be requested to cover incursions or excursions during the year. A list of stationary items required to be purchased by families will be made available before the start of the school year.
We do not have a mandatory uniform, but for those that choose, we have kindy t-shirts available for purchase. Kids are asked to attend the kindy in comfortable attire that you don’t mind getting dirty.
