TOY CATALOGUE FUNDRAISER

We have Educational experience and Parent Direct toy catalogues in the foyer.

They are great ways to buy educational and fun resources as presents – remember Christmas isn’t far away.

Orders due by the 8th September.

 

FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

Thank you Tigger’s and Pooh’s Corner families for bringing in the fruit daily. We have had a wonderful selection for our fruit and vegetable platters.

We also encourage vegetables to be brought in – cherry tomatoes, carrots, snow peas, cucumbers etc.

 

FOOD BROUGHT IN FROM HOME

We have to be very strict with what food comes into the centre. This is for medical reasons of children having food allergies or anaphylaxis reactions. It is also to support our nutrition policy.

Please be aware of what foods you are bringing in.

To save an educator having to remove the food from your child and upsetting them, please don’t bring in…….nut items, sugary cereal foods eg: coco pops, fruit loops etc, jams, flavoured milk (just to name a few)

We don’t want to play the bad guy, so please if needed, keep these food items at home.

 

HOSTING STUDENTS

To work with our community, we have a few students coming in for their placements. We work closely with many colleges and registered training authorities to encourage a passion for early childhood education.

You will see some new student faces throughout the remainder of the year.

 

SUN PROTECTION/CLOTHING

As the weather warms up……..Please remember, our sun protection policy states for all children to wear a broad brimmed, legionaries style hat or bucket style hat-  NO BASEBALL HATS ALLOWED!

We have a lot of children not bringing in hats, we don’t have many spare hats so please ensure you pack a hat for your child as we do follow the NO HAT NO PLAY rule.

Also, for children to wear clothing that covers their shoulders – NO SINGLETS, STRAP DRESSES OR MUSCLE TOPS.  NO THONGS ALLOWED.

This is to encourage lifelong sun protection skills for your child.

 

SCHOOL READINESS

Our school readiness room – Pooh’s Corner will have lunchbox days and crunch and sip days throughout term 4. An email will be sent with more information and dates.
