To do this we need to share information and be able to receive your direct feedback. We also aim to support you in your role as parents, and need you to share any concerns you may have.

  • Regular newsletters;
  • Each family having their own ‘parent information folder’ which is located in the filing cabinet at the entrance to the centre;
  • Daily verbal exchange;
  • Our digital photo frame and daily insights book provide families with an overview of their child’s day. This documentation is made by team members as part of our educational program and are a way of recording and documenting learning and experiences of children.
  • Formal/informal meetings
  • Children’s portfolios.
