GOODBYE AND GOOD LUCK
Goodbye to many families in Pooh’s Corner who have children going off to school next year!
We have had many families be a part of the centre for several years, as all of their children have gone through the centre. To those families who it is your last child leaving Hunny Pots, we wish you love, luck and happiness. Please come back and say hello – we always love to keep in touch!
To the children going to school in 2017 – we wish you the best of luck and we would love to see you in the New Year in your school uniform!
PORTFOLIO’S AND PHOTO DVD
Your child’s portfolio and end of year report will be available on our last full week of the year eg: 12th-16th December.
This will also come with your child’s room DVD – a collection of photos from throughout the year.
Portfolio’s and DVD’s will only be handed out to families with no outstanding fees.
CHILDREN MOVING ROOMS
We have many children moving rooms next year! They have been participating in our orientation process to become aware of their new room and the routine. It would be great if you could talk at home about your child’s new room next year to help them understand the transition. All children move into their new rooms for the start of the New Year. Thank you.
CAR PARK SAFETY
Please ensure your child walks with you in the car park – we have many children who are running in the car park. Whilst it might be quiet at that time, it is important to teach our children life lessons of road safety at all times.
Please ask your children not to ride on the gate. It puts the gate ‘out’ and stops it from closing by itself. This is a safety issue with children then having access to the car park.
MAINTENANCE OVER THE HOLIDAYS
Our pine trees in our backyard have been removed due to a neighbour request/wasp issue/softfall maintenance. We will be planting some native plants to enhance the natural environment and shade.
Over the Christmas closure the wet floor areas – Kitchen, laundry, bathroom flooring will be replaced.
This will be safer flooring for the wet areas.
