We would like to say a big welcome to all our new families that have started with us this past month. We hope you enjoy your time here with us at Footprints.

* Graduation 2021:

Graduation will be held here at the centre with the ceremony beginning at 5:00pm, can parents please have their children here at the centre by 4:45pm at the latest so that we can prepare the graduates for the ceremony.

Numbers will be limited. At this stage we are confirming 2 adults per child can attend, if you are wanting extra adults to attend, please confirm numbers with your RSVP and we will collate this information and then confirm how many we can have attend from each family. At this stage with numbers and sizing we are asking that only adults attend, however we will do our best to accommodate children but priority attendance consideration goes to adults. This works in conjunction with our emergent Covid safe plan.  

An email will be sent soon to families so that you can reply and confirm numbers of adults attending. Please keep an eye out for this and reply as soon as you can.

* Christmas hallway challenge:

 Miss Glenda (I) felt our new hallway was looking a bit sad and needed to have some cheer added to it, tis being the season, a challenge was issued to the room staff to dress up their doors with the theme being 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'. This was a great way to get our hallway looking alive and festive, as well as giving the educators an opportunity to be creative and have a challenge against each other.

The winning room/door will be announced this Friday (26th November) and then will be announced on our Centre Facebook page and Educa message board.

Wonder who will win ? Leave a comment in comment section to let us know which room you think should/will win πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸ€ΆπŸΌ
