Once you've been offered a place at KCC and have worked out your start date we'll talk to you about settling your child in.
We require you to bring your child in at least three times before enrolment commences. This ensures that your child is familiar and comfortable with the Centre which results in a smoother transition.
A healthy lunch, morning and afternoon tea are provided by our cook, take a look at a sample menu.
Parents need to supply nappies if required and a labelled change of clothes.
KCC is open from 7.45am - 5.45pm. The day is broken into two sessions, AM commencing at 7:45 to 12:45 and PM commencing 1:00pm to 5:45pm.
