The mornings are cold but the atmosphere is warm and friendly at Piptree Eight Mile Plains. We have had our international friendship day celebrated with the animal farms and small group play. The warmth of all our new families as well as our families who have been with us for many years is incredible.
We have had a recent visit from the Police Department which the older children enjoyed so much, they were able to sit in the police car, hear the sirens, ask about the hand cuffs and listen to what the amazing job the Police do. Whilst on the subject of Police, with our CCTV cameras in full swing, we were able to provide a video of criminal activity, as a break and enter occurred to a family behind our service, and our CCTV cameras clearly show the people and the car involved. Something I would not have thought of but it makes another great reason for safety!!

Take a moment to check out the new weekly curriculum format in place, the weekly activities, both indoor and outdoor experience's and the children's voices can be seen and you can follow up with the educators about the experiences. The laptops in the rooms run a slide show daily of the activities so you don't miss a moment!!
As part of the National Quality Frameworks (NQF), our centre is required to develop a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). This document is a way to recognise our strengths and identify areas of improvement, within our service. We establish goals and strategies to meet those goals, to ensure we are always improving our practice.
At our most recent staff meeting, we were lucky enough to have Caroline Fewster available for the day, in the rooms and also at the staff meeting, fine tuning our impressive service!! The QIP is available in the foyer, we seek your feedback and suggestions!!
❖ A reminder to please send an appropriate change of clothes with your child.
❖ A reminder for packed snacks that we have nut and egg allergies in the service. If everyone packing food could just remember to check to make sure that it is safe to come here before packing it. Many thanks
❖ Please remember to sign in and out on arrival and departure, using the kiosk please.
Remember - if you are wanting to change days, add days, now is the time, we are very full, so the little changes you wish to occur need some time and planning. Please book in-advance, as I will not over book the rooms.
Have a beautiful day, smile.
