Firstly I would like to congratulate Miss Margaret on her 10 years of service! Miss Margaret joined us back in September 2007 as our Lead Educator in the Junior Kindy Room. Over the years Miss Margaret has worked in various rooms and worked alongside me as my Assistant Director. Please join me in congratulating her on her 10th year with Jellybean's. We certainly are looking forward to the next ten! On another note Miss Stephanie in Junior Kindy recently announced her engagement! Congratulations to Miss Stephanie and her partner Ky. More exciting news for another Jellybean Educator.......We are pleased to announce Miss Nat is expecting her first child in October this year. Miss Nat will return to Jellybean's in 2018.
This is a quick reminder to our Pre-school Families that if you have not enrolled your child for Prep in 2018 now is the time to organise this. We are currently liaising with the local schools in the area for the Prep Teachers to visit the Centre. Miss Carla has placed a poster outside the Pre-school Room for parents to nominate which particular school their child will attend in 2018. Please take the time to write your child's school details down. Over the coming weeks Miss Carla will issue Transition Statements for the Pre-school Children. These will need to be signed and returned so that we can forward them onto the school your child will be commencing at in 2018.
It was great to see the children and Educators dress up as Pirates and Princesses. I will upload more images to our Centre Face Book Page. If you are not linked to our Centre Face Book page please let me know so I can share the link with you.
Now is the time to start considering your Christmas and New Years Holiday Plans. If you are planning on taking leave over this period please let me know so we can allocate leave for our Educators. The Centre will remain open over the Christmas period except for the main Public Holidays. For those of you that have children leaving due to t Prep in 2018 we will need to place an expected date as to when your child is leaving in our system. Please remember that your Prep child can stay here with us at the Centre up until the Friday before Prep commences in 2018.
