Please keep your fees up to date, if you are experiencing financial difficulties please come and talk to us.
If you are going to be later than normal, which is fine things happen, please phone 09 263 9680 and let us know.
Please remember when dropping off or picking up your children to park in the parking bays only. Please do not block the entrance and exits. If there is not enough room to park, drive through and park on the road. Thank you for your co-operation.
Please try to name as much of your child’s clothing as humanly possible. We do our best to keep it all together but it’s really difficult to monitor who is wearing what at all times. If you do lose something please ask the teachers to direct you to the lost property.
LAST DAY and BIRTHDAYS
We are part of the Heart Foundation Healthy Heart Programme. Therefore we do not celebrate birthday with cakes and other similar food. We welcome fruit platters and water instead. Please let us know when your child’s last day will be (for school) so that we can plan for your child’s ‘happy last day’ celebrations.
Please keep your sick children at home. I understand how difficult this can be for working parents but Toddlers Turf is a childcare centre for healthy children. The only way we can sustain this is by parents keeping sick children at home. Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
Please check your child’s parent pocket regularly, if you don’t know where this is please ask a teacher. The pocket is one way we communicate with you via notes etc. If you don’t read the note you won’t know what’s happening.
CHANGE OF CLOTHING:
Please ensure that you have provided at least one full change of clothes if at all possible two changes would be better. The children often climb on the equipment before we have had chance to dry it and end up wet or sit down on the wet ground or grass and end up with a wet bottom which is not at all pleasant.
Please remember to take your child’s bag home every day and check for wet or soiled clothing. We would appreciate you replacing the dirty clothes with clean clothing. Many thanks.
Just a reminder that late snack is only available to children that are at the centre after 5.00 pm. Our cook prepares a certain amount of food based on the amount of children we anticipate will be here after 5.00. We need to have this available for children that are going to be here until we close at 5.30. Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
Sorry but we do not serve breakfast. The first meal of the day is morning tea which is served at about 9:30. Please do not send your child to the centre with food of any kind. We have children with severe allergies and this could endanger their well-being.
CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES:
If your personal details have changed please don’t forget to let us know so we can update our records.
