Orientation

Kool Kidz recognizes that leaving a child for the first time can cause separation anxiety for both the family and the child. Kool Kidz aims to make this time as comfortable and positive for all involved and strongly encourages all families to participate in the Kool Kidz orientation process as children need to feel safe and comfortable in their surroundings prior to the commencement of formal attendance.

Kool Kidz offers each family two one hour complimentary orientation visits. These are a great opportunity for parents, family members and the child to become comfortable and better acquainted with the child care service educators and routines.
