PARENT INFORMATION

Hours of Operation

Our Centre is open from 7.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. The Centre is closed on all declared public holidays.

Meals Provided
Our centre has a qualified cook who holds qualifications in Nutrition, Menu Planning and Safe Food Handling. She prepares and cooks all meals on premises. We provide breakfast, morning tea, hot lunch, dessert, afternoon tea and an evening snack. We also provide all cow’s milk, and water throughout the day.

There is a daily menu displayed on the wall of each room, and these menus are rotated weekly. We happily welcome any feedback and suggestions from families.

Our menus are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Children & Adolescents in Australia and are based on the recommended food groups and serving sizes as outlines in the Nutrition Checklist for Menu Planning.

We also happily cater for any children with allergies or special dietary requirements.

Orientation & Starting Childcare

 An orientation day is encouraged by us whereby you can visit our centre together with your child prior to their start date. You can spend one hour at the centre free of charge in order for you and your child to familiarise yourselves with the classroom, surroundings, educators and learning program. This enables your child to settle into the centre and make their first day of child care less overwhelming.

Once your child commences care at our centre, our educators will do everything possible to settle your child as we endeavour to make this transition as smooth as possible for everyone.

 

We kindly request that you bring the following items with your child each day to the centre:

  • An appropriate hat to protect from the sun (either broad brimmed or legionnaires)
  • Drink bottle
  • Bed sheets
  • Comforters such as dummies, bottles, blankets etc
  • Formula (if applicable)
  • Nappies
  • Spare clothing

NB: Please ensure all items are clearly labelled with your child’s name!
