2021 Planning

Just a reminder to please let us know if your child may not be returning to Kapinara next year, even if at this point it is just a possibility. While it seems fairly early, it is important information for our planning, particularly in terms of budgeting, and structuring classes. Thanks for your understanding in this regard.

Head Lice

Nits (Head lice) are common in the community and in schools. We are aware of an outbreak at the moment in the Year 4 group and would encourage you to check your child’s hair for any signs.
The school and department policy on affected students is that they are sent home to be treated and may return once treatment has begun. Teachers or another officer at the school may examine a student’s for the purpose of ascertaining whether head lice are present.  Health Dept Head Lice information

The ‘Y’

In the last few weeks at YMCA Kapinara OSHC we have been setting up a new environment with the children’s input. We have added a tree for the quiet/rest corner. Which the children have thoroughly enjoyed!
We have incorporated a habitat for the animals and dinosaurs that we have here, with the help of the children in our Before School Care Session.
In addition to this we have created our very own YMCA leaf vine with all the children’s names on their leaf. This is near the parent table as you walk into the room.
There is a Nature Exploration Table set up in our room for the children to see, touch and explore!
