June 2017 Newsletter

We invite you to our coffee and portfolio afternoon.

Coffee and Portfolio afternoon – 24th – 28th July 4pm-5pm. Come along to have a cuppa and look through your child’s portfolio. 

Staff will be maintaining ratios with the children. All portfolios will be in Pooh’s Corner to view while having a hot drink (no children near hot drinks please)

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

During morning and afternoon tea times our children are offered a variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables. For Tigger and Poohs Corner families that are required to bring in a piece of fruit daily, we welcome you to bring in vegetables also that can be served raw for our children to increase their vegetable serves!  We look forward to seeing the variety of fruit and vegetables in our baskets.

END OF FINANCIAL YEAR PAYMENTS

To assist with your Child Care Benefit and/or Child Care Rebate payments, please ensure your account is finalised by the 30/6/15. Thank you.

APPROPRIATE LANGUAGE AT HUNNY POTS ELC

We kindly ask that adults be mindful of their language whilst at Hunny Pots.

We endeveour to have our service a place of positive and appropriate language in all areas of the centre (foyer, playrooms etc)

TRANSITIONING FROM ONE ROOM TO THE NEXT

If your child turns 3 years old before the 31st July this year, we will endeavor to move them from Eeyore’s room to Tigger’s room. This is based on there being a position available – they are our first priority when positions do become available.

When children move from Eeyores to Tiggers, they participate in orientation; this is to assist with a smooth transition to their new room. They have the opportunity to become familiar with their new teachers and children in the room. The previous teacher will pass on information and observation records of the child to the next teacher to ensure consistency and continuity. Children are encouraged to be toilet trained before they go into Tigger’s Place, as there are no nappy changing facilities in this room.

Eeyore’s is the only room we transition mid year.

All Eeyore children turning 3 years after the 31st July will move up to Tigger’s at the beginning of next year.

SEEKING PROFESSIONAL SPECIALIST ADVICE

If you are referred to a specialist e.g.: speech, occupational therapy etc please send us an email with your permission to discuss your child’s development with the specialist.

This helps us to work in partnership together whilst respecting confidentiality.

CAR PARK

Please open and hold the car door for your children while they are entering and exiting the car. It is very easy for doors to open wide and hit another car accidently.

Please hold your child’s hand in the carpark – this is a great life skill.

STAFF TRAINING

Our professional development government grant comes to an end this financial year. We have been able to ulitise this grant with some fantastic training.

We have Miss Kim, Miss Jessica, Miss Kayley and Miss Rhiannon attending the ACA conference/weekend retreat at the end of June. They will attend workshops during the day and network with other educators.

We look forward to hearing about what they have learnt and what they will use in our service.
