Jennys ELC Strathfieldsaye Centre News – June 2014

Dear Families,

the year is passing us by really quickly and there have been a number of changes at Strathfieldsaye over the past few months. Firstly we would like to welcome any new families and children to the centre, we hope you have a wonderful time with us. We look forward to sharing your child’s learning journey with you and look forward to sharing wonderful memories

We farewelled Leanne Peters from the service and have been busy interviewing to appoint a new Centre Director. We would like to Welcome Proven Blake to the team as Centre Director, please pop your head into the office and say hi. Proven is available to answers any questions or concerns.

We would also like to Welcome Wendy Boorn to our team as Room Leader in the Koalas room, Wendy comes to us with many years experience and we look forward to the new direction and leadership of Wendy’s appointment.

Upcoming Centre Photo’s will be done on Wednesday the 3rd of September and Thursday the 4th of September. If your children do not attend on these days you are more than welcome to bring them in to have photo’s taken and we will arrange a time.

We have some brand new 2014 Kinder t-shirts if you would like to purchase one please see the staff to arrange we have size 4 and size 6 at the cost of $17 each.

Please ensure that you’re e-mail address and contact details are up to date with the office so we are able to contact you in the event of an emergency and that you also receive centre information.

FEES: Please remember that it is the centre’s policy for all fees to be kept to a minimum of 2 weeks in advance at all times. If your account falls behind, unfortunately your child’s position here at the centre may be reviewed and/or cancelled. If you are having trouble receiving the online statements or having trouble understanding them please see Proven in the office.

CCB%- to avoid the cancellation of your Child Care Benefit, your child must attend the last day of their notice period or if this is impossible due to your child being sick then a Doctors certificate must be provided up until the last date (this is a Centre Link requirement for the approval of CCB %)

Please remember to bring along some warmer clothing for your children as they are still enjoying some outdoor play. We would love any donations of clothing that your children may have grown out of as we have very little spare clothing in the event of toileting accidents our messy play experiences.

It was wonderful to see so many families come along to our mother’s day afternoon tea, please feel free to come and participate in the program at any time. It’s so wonderful to see so many parent helpers on our excursions so please talk to the educators in your child’s room if you have a specific thing you would like to do for example playing the guitar, dancing, cooking, gardening and so on so we can arrange a time.

Thanks from the office team
