Play School  :  FAQs

Here are a few frequently asked questions that may answer some of your questions. A detailed Parents Booklet is available upon enrolling your child. Please contact us and we will email it to you.

1. Can I pay on a weekly basis or in installments for a term's fees?

Yes, when you attending casually, casual fee is paid priro to attending the class. Casual fee is only apply to children that are on a trial period before officially enrolled with Kimmba. For children who are learning the language on the regular bases, the package payment is paid prior to take the 10 session package.

2. What happens if my child's sick?

When children become sick we ask that parents keep them at home where they can recover amidst the warmth of their home environment. The best way for children to recover from coughs, colds and other viruses is to take it easy at home. Kimmba offers the felixibility for parents to reschedule the class that you know your child will be absent with a 48 hours notice via our online booking system. More details please refer to our Parents Booklet.

3. What sort of equipment should I bring to the play school sessions?

Teachers will advise if any special equipment is needed but usually there are no extra requirements for the sessions.

4. Do I need to be able to speak the language myself?

No. Parents whose first language is not the target language may try the following methods to create a second language learning environment at home. You might try organizing visits and home plays with friends or community members that are speaking the particular language you would like your child to learn. You could also try songs as a way of helping your child to learn a new language. Play song CDs in the car, at home, in the playroom, sing along with them. Don’t worry too much about how perfect your singing sounds, babies love mother/father’s voices, the important thing here is not how good your pronunciation is but the interaction you provide and the fun in doing so. Make flashcards or stickers and place them all over your house. Visual stimulation is so important to those little brains' development. Fill your house up with them and your child will soon learn to make connections with what he sees and what it means with your help on the side.

5. If I can't come with my child, is it ok if someone else accompanies them?

Yes. We welcome family members and friends apart from parents to come and join in with children attending Kimmba Play School sessions. We ask parents to have alternative carers listed on the enrollment form and that they present identification at the session they attend with your child so that we can verify their identity.

6. Do I need to be a member of Playgroups Victoria?

Yes. As we have been the member of Playgroup Victoria since 2007 and running the structured playgroup program. It is a great organisation and we believe that your mission fit in with their philosophy and we do encourage families to join Playgroups Victoria to help with their wonderful community work.

7. Do we need to bring pencils or other stationery equipment?

No. All equipment including pencils, textas, child-friendly scissors, coloured paper, worksheets, glue, textured materials, play dough, sticky tape, toys, paints, cardboard, modeling clay, stickers etc, etc is provided for each session. All these materials are covered by your membership fee.

8. Is it possible for local businesses to sponsor Kimmba and what are the conditions?

Yes! We welcome business sponsors and invite you to call to discuss advertising and promotional opportunities on what we can offer businesses who sponsor our excellent Play School program for our young learners.
