Children’s Dress- Flat sole shoes are highly recommended as regular outside exploration takes place; involving climbing and balancing. Sun Safe clothing must be worn. Singlets and strap dresses are not permitted at any time. If your child is toilet training please ensure they wear appropriate clothing to assist with the transition.

Birthdays – We encourage all families to let their children share their special day with all of their friends at preschool. Most children like to bring a cake to celebrate this event.

Treasures from Home - We have a large number of play toys/equipment and activities, so we prefer for all special toys to be left at home, to avoid these getting lost or broken.

Parent Notices- All notices; newsletters, fee reminders and receipts will be EMAILED.

Policies- Rutherford Playtime Preschool has a number of policies which show how we conform to the Children’s Services regulations. There is a copy of the policies available in both rooms and also the office, for your reference. Feedback is welcome where possible placed into action.
