Maiden Gully Office News – June 2014

Head Lice

Over the past few weeks we have had some confirmed cases of Head Lice. If your child presents any of the symptoms, please seek treatment and once they are treated they can return to the service. If you would like further information there are fact sheets in the foyer or any of the staff will be happy to answer your questions. Please check the Parent Noticeboard for any notices in regards to children’s illness.

Children’s Illness

With winter and the cold weather well and truly on us, quite a few children have been unwell and we have needed to send them home. We understand it can be difficult with work commitments to arrange for care of children who are unwell; however, there’s nothing like a bit of TLC from the family to help a child feel better. If you are concerned or unsure about whether your child should attend please don’t hesitate to call the centre for some general advice.

Parent notice board

Each week we send out emails to keep families up to date and informed about the happenings at the centre. These emails and notices are all printed and also displayed on the parent notice board which is located in the foyer. Hard copies are also available for parents to take home.

Also located around the notice board are the calendar of events, community notices, illness notifications and anything that the parents want to advertise.

If you have any feedback on the notice board or would like to pop up a poster please don’t hesitate to drop by the office for a chat and please check the notice board regularly to keep updated.


Are you are thinking of enrolling your child in kindergarten with Jenny’s in 2015? Kinder enrolments close on the 30th of June and we’d love to have you all enrol in the amazing programs being implemented by Sarah, Chloe and Jess. If you are requiring an enrolment form please see Sarah or Jaylea and they will assist you and answer any questions you may have.

Winter Vegie Garden

During the last few weeks we have had great fun planting our vegetable gardens and watching them grow and develop. We now would like to work on some potted plants including succulents, flowers and bulbs. If anyone has any seedlings growing wild that they can transplant or plants they can propagate and donate, we’d love to teach the children that you don’t have to go to Bunnings to get a plant.

We’d also love some helpful green thumbs to work with the children and staff so please have a chat with any one at the centre if you can volunteer.
