Welcome to the latest edition of Jellybean News!
Wow! Who can believe it is mid June already, tax time is just around the corner! The year is passing by ever so fast. I hope that everyone is keeping well and that you have not been effected by COVID-19. We can only hope that with the recent changes life and restrictions being lifted that life will return to normal sooner rather than later.
I would like to remind you all of the importance of maintaining our hygiene levels and restricting your child's attendance if they are unwell. If your child has any Flu like symptoms - runny nose, temperature, cough, rash they should not attend. By enforcing the restrictions we are maintaining a safe environment for your family and our Educators. I thank you all for your co-operation with this matter.
When opening the main door to the Centre please remember to use the Pin Pad and enter the code you have been given that operates the door. All to often we are seeing families pull on the door and force it open. By doing this you are creating a potential hazard where you, your child or someone else could potentially get hurt. If you do not know the code please knock on the door and an Educator will assist you.
When moving throughout the Service please ensure you close any door that you open and please do not let any child that is not your own accompany you into a room without an Educator.
The Centre carpark is designed for all of our families to use when dropping off and picking up their children. When entering and exiting the Carpark please refrain from using excessive speed, be on the lookout for other moving vehicles and children and in particular car doors that are opening. Nothing is more scarier than trying to get your child in or out of your car and another vehicle tries to park right beside you, please lets all be a bit more cautious with our vehicles.
Until next month.....Take Care
For your child to benefit from the whole Program it is beneficial for them to arrive by 9am. This way they benefit from having some outside play before moving inside for Morning Tea. Quiet often we are seeing children arrive after 11am and this is causing the children to become upset as they are arriving around lunch and rest time. Any child that is not here at the Centre before 10am will be marked as absent. Please ensure that you use the KIOSK located in the foyer to sign your child in and out each day they attend.
The following Educators are celebrating their Birthdays in the month of June! Please join me in wishing them a very Happy Birthday! We hope you all have a wonderful day!
Miss Stephanie - 18th
Miss Ha - 20th
Mr David - 22nd
Miss Cristina 24th
