At kindergarten we like to acknowledge each child’s birthday. If you would like to send along a birthday cake or some small cakes to be eaten at snack time, please do so, the children love to celebrate! We do however discourage the distribution of lolly bags and ask that parents do not bring these to kinder. If in any doubt, please feel free to discuss your plans for any kinder celebrations with your child’s teacher. We are always happy to have a chat.
We would appreciate it if you could provide us with a list of the ingredients used in the cake(s) or the original packaging if it is from a shop. This helps us to cater for the needs of children with allergies. Be reassured that the children with allergies have a supply of their own “special” snacks that we can offer should they be unable to consume the birthday treat.
If your child’s birthday falls on a weekend or holiday, you may like to send a cake on the nearest kindergarten day. Many parents like to schedule their kinder duty session to coincide with their child’s birthday so that you too can enjoy the celebrations.
