Frequently asked questions

How many children are there in classes?
Regulations regarding ratio for children aged 3-5 and educators are 1:11.

At DNMK we believe providing below ratio programs offer quality education. Within DNMK’s 3 year-old kinder program we enroll 24 children with three staff. In our 4 year-old kinder program we enroll up to 29 children with three staff. All other programs operate with up to 20 children and two staff. 

How and when will I be notified of acceptance?
In July of the year prior to your child’s attendance, DNMK will email out letters of offer to families on the waiting list register. Positions are offered following DNMK’s priority of access as per our enrolment policy. Parents are required to respond to the emailed offer and complete the enrolment process within the stipulated time frame to accept the position. 

How do I ensure we get our preferred session days?
When completing the enrolment form you will have the option to select which sessions you would like. Sessions are filled on a first in first booked system. If your chosen sessions are full you will e notified and give the option to choose other sessions.

What should my child bring to kindergarten?
The parent handbook has a full list of items that your child should bring to kindergarten with them, including a bag, drink bottle, morning tea, lunch, afternoon snack and a change of clothes to be kept in their bag.

What shouldn’t my child bring to kindergarten?
The main thing is to keep toys and valuable items at home, as they inevitably get lost or broken. Comfort toys and other items for relaxation are happily accepted.

We are a nut aware setting so we ask that no nut products be included in your child’s lunchbox.

What about holidays?
We operate throughout the year, across 4 terms as per the Victorian School’s timetable.
