Staff Induction
(Relief staff, Students and Volunteers…)

Welcome to Madge Sexton Kindergarten

This page has been put into place to assist Relief staff (Teachers and Early Childhood Workers), Students (University students and Work experience students) and Volunteers who intend to work at Madge Sexton Kindergarten.

Before commencing work at Madge Sexton Kindergarten, a staff member will perform an induction meeting, working through the Madge Sexton Kindergarten Induction and Orientation Checklist with you to ensure that you are familiar with relevant policies, processes and procedures. However, to assist us with this process, it would be useful if you could familiarise yourself with the following information:

To get a “feel” for who we are, how we work and what we value, please read our Madge Sexton Kindergarten Statement of Philosophy.

To familiarise yourself with who you will be working with, please read our Staff Profiles.

Please familiarise yourself with the following policies. Some of these are lengthy so we have highlighted in yellow specific information that we need you to be aware of in some of the policies.
