We truly believe “It takes a whole village to raise a child”. Meaning it takes all of the people involved in the life of a child to give their best in doing their part in the raising of a child.
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 with you daily about your child and understand attitudes and expectations for your child’s development.
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 Kinderloop daily.
Kinderloop provides a secure way to share information and real-time updates of your child’s day on your smart device or via the web. This App creates strong partnerships between educators and families with the help of 2-way communication: documenting and keeping the families engaged by showing you what your child is doing throughout the day.
The Centre also publishes a newsletter which includes photos, Centre updates, news and upcoming 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.
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.
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.
