MEDIA RELEASE - Kindergartens open their doors

26 June 2018

Families looking to enrol their children in kindergarten or pre-kindergarten for 2019 are invited to attend an upcoming Open Day event in their township, which will provide a unique insight into early childhood education programs.

The Open Day events will see Glenelg Shire Council managed kindergartens in Portland, Heywood and Casterton open their doors to prospective families and their children on Monday 16 July 2018 between 1:30pm-3:30pm.

Glenelg Shire children’s services manager Janine Johnstone hoped to welcome many families through the centres, with the events held in preparation for the upcoming enrolment week period.

“The Open Day events are a fantastic way for families to see firsthand which kindergarten best suits the needs of their child and discuss any queries they may have,” she said.

“Attendees will meet with teaching staff and learn about the educational programs delivered at each service. Families who attend will be best prepared for enrolment week, which will take place during 23-27 July, as they gain a greater understanding of the individual offerings of each kindergarten.

“I hope to see many prospective families attend an Open Day event close to home in anticipation for 2019 enrolment.”

The following early learning centres will be participating in the Open Day event:
• Jaycee Kindergarten, Portland
• Kalbarri Kindergarten, Portland
• Heywood Kindergarten
• Portland Child and Family Complex
• Kathleen Millikan Centre, Casterton
