Emergency Management Plan
CODE RED DAYS
With all the current fires in Queensland and NSW I believe we can expect a very serious fire season this year. Meaning the Department may call CODE RED day.
As a Child Care Centre in a bush fire area we are required to close on CODE RED days. We will be advised by Department of Education and Training if a CODE RED day is happening 24 hours prior to the day. This is when we will issue and announcement to all parent/families that attend on that day effect that we will be close. You will have to arrange alternative care for that day.
NOTE: It is important that family contact details are kept up to date in the event that you need to be contacted in an emergency situation. Please ensure that if your address, phone number or emergency contacts have changed to update them with the Mandy ASAP.
We have notice that a few families aren't restraining their children correctly in vehicles. Remember this is a law that you must use appropriate child car seats and seat belts for all children. The police do patrol the grounds on a regular occasions
You may have heard the children talking about stranger danger and feeling safe. This is an area that the educators have been exploring with the children in their programs. We have also been practicing lock down procedures in the event we have an intruder. If you have any concerns please contact Mandy to discuss.

We will be having a Christmas Hamper to fundraise. There will be a basket in the hallway to donate a small item to contribute to the raffle. Tickets will go out into families pockets soon.
The transitioning process is going great. All children have settled into the routine. If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to discuss with the room leaders Kimberley, Lourdes, Jules or Mandy
WE NEED SPARE CLOTHES.
IF YOU HAVE ANY OF OUR SPARES PLEASE RETURN THEM ASAP or if you are doing a clean out we would love pants to fit the pre-school children.
Please call us in the morning if your child wont be attending for the day. We have waiting list to fill the position.
We also need to know if your child is ill.
Remember your child must stay away 24 hours after vomiting, high fevers and diarrhea. This is also for viral infections diagnosed by a doctor. This is to protect the other child, families and educators.
Thank you for you cooperation
Please make sure you sign in and out each day. If you forget your PIN please ask an educator they have a list available to help.
PLEASE TELL YOUR EDUCATORS YOUR CHILD'S LAST DAY SO YOU WONT BE CHARGE FOR EXTRA DAYS
Keeping on top of fees
Please make sure you keep your child care fees up to date. We are a small community based child care centre and are unable to carry any debt.
Grandparents and Grand-friends day
We invite you all to attend our special grandparent and special friend day on Thursday the 28th of November 2019 at 2:30pm to join us for afternoon tea and a play

Our sun smart policy states that we are require to wear a Hats, apply sun screen and play in the shade when the UV level reaches 3 or higher. This is now the case.
We are reminding all families to pack a sum smart hat. (wide brim) Provide sun screen if you require an alternative.
Please make sure your child's hat still fits as they may have grown from last year.
Choose clothing that covers as much skin as possible. The best styles are tops with collars, and sleeves of at least three quarter-length, pants or skirts of at least three-quarter-length. Singlets and shoulder showing garments are not adequate protection.
What you need to do pack a suitable hat, a drink bottle that is cleaned daily to prevent mould and other bacteria
What coming up?
Please make sure all belongings including clothing, hats, drink bottles, baby bottle, and dummies are clearly named.
