Partnerships with families permit for educators and parents to work and communicate collaboratively to give your child the best possible outcome for development. Therefore, at Kids Club we will communicate daily about your child and understand attitudes and expectations for your child’s development.

 

Communication and Newsletters

 

Each team member will talk to you about your child’s learning throughout the day so you know how your child is developing on a daily basis. You will receive your child’s room learning story via email daily, this can also be viewed in your child’s room. The Centre also publishes a weekly newsletter which includes photos, Centre updates, news and upcoming events.

 

Centre Events

 

Throughout the year at Kids Club, all families are provided with an opportunity to attend information evenings where you hear from our developmental specialists, our educators and learn about your child’s developmental progress.

Social events are also held at your Centre where you’ll meet other families and enjoy celebrations with your children. These include morning and afternoon teas, BBQs, celebrating special events on the calendar and many more.

 

Family Lounge

 

The Family Lounge is unique to Kids Club and is designed to allow busy families access to their children’s developmental portfolio in the comfort of their own home and in their own time.

The Family Lounge contains an online portfolio of your child’s work samples, learning stories, photos and developmental summaries that have been written by our Educators just for your child.

At Kids Club the Family Lounge is our daily diary. This is uploaded daily and includes photos, videos and written observations so you can view the experiences and activities your child has participated in throughout the day. The daily diary is also available in each of the classrooms.

You can access the Family Lounge at any time to view how your child is learning and progressing via your own personal login details.

 

Notice Boards

 

Notice boards are situated within each centre. These contain information concerning community events, our weekly menu and weekly program. Please check these notice boards regularly so that you can remain a “well-informed” parent. Each of the rooms also contains a family information area where you will be able to view the activities of the day in the daily program.

An interpreter service is available for families who require it.

 

Communication Books

 

Each child in our baby groups, and toddlers on request, is issued with a book to provide an important link between parents and carers. We understand that you do not always have a lot of time at drop-off or collection, so these books allow messages to be shared between you and us. Amongst other things, we will note meals, sleeps and toilets through the day (most appropriate for babies and toddlers), and in case these things are not discussed on collection, you can refer back to it once you get home.
