https://www.mornpen.vic.gov.au/Community-Services/Children-Family/Kindergarten

Enrolments close on 30th June 2019, any enrolments received after this date will be deemed 'late' and will have a lower priority than 'on time' enrolments.

Why enrol at Baxter Kindergarten?

1. We are a 100% community based kinder run by a strong parent committee.

2. We are NOT zoned, therefore can accept children from neighbouring shires.

3. Our 3 Year Old Program is separate to our 4 Year Old Program, the children are not 'mixed in' together.

4. The children are enrolled into a group and are with the same children each day they attend. This allows the children to form a close bond with their peers and for their teachers to extend on topics explored on previous days.

5. We have 2 kinder classrooms, which makes it possible for us to run:
- four 4 year old groups with a limit of 22 per class, allowing us to offer 88 places for 4 year olds per year. (2 of these group run a Bush kinder program too)
- two 3 year old groups with a limit of 22 per class, allowing us to offer 44 places for 3 year olds per year.

6. Baxter Kindergarten runs an extended multiaged kinder program called Explorers which not only caters for working parents, but also extends children's learning.

7. We have modern facilities with our building and playground being completely renovated, landscaped and extended in late 2014

8. Our fees are lower than neighbouring kinders and all incursions and excursions are included in the fees.

9. Baxter Kindergarten is rated Exceeding by ACECQA. The National Early Years Learning Framework, Victorian Early Years Learning & Development Framework and the National Quality Standards are embedded within our practice.

10. Almost all staff hold higher qualifications than they are required for their role at the centre and we think they are the best around!!
