Dear Parents / Caregivers,
Term 3 Monday 23 July - Friday 28 September
Term 4 Monday 15 October - Friday 7 December
Fees: For children not receiving ‘20 hours ECE’ the fees are $3.00 per hour. There is a discount available for those doing full day sessions who use all their ‘20 ECE’ hours with us. Please collect your invoice from beside the sign-in book as it becomes available.
Mobile Phone: The kindy has a mobile phone in addition to our landline. The number is 027 525 8850.
Parent Evening: Monday 10 September 7.30pm at the kindy
This is the evening which we had planned to hold in June but needed to be postponed. We will be looking at how and what the children learn as they take part in the various kindy experiences. We will also be sharing some of our learning around the updated Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whariki (2017). Come and join us for an informative and enjoyable evening.
Thank you to the Combined Lions Clubs of Morrinsville, Morrinsville Pakeke and Tahuna and Districts for their generous donation of $500. This money was raised through the collection and sale of casualty calves generously donated by farmers in the areas during the calving season of 2017.
Financial Statements for the year ended 31 January 2017 are available on the parents’ resource shelf (in the mat room).
Child Protection: Following staff attendance at a recent course on ‘Strengthening our Child Protection Practice’, we will be using the correct language for body parts when necessary with children. Please ask if you would like more information about this.
Photos: We are planning to have group photos taken of each session during a week in September. The photos will then be available for you to order copies if you wish to.
Website: There is now a link to the Licensing Criteria for Early Childhood Education and Care Services 2008 and the Early Childhood Education Curriculum Framework on our website (above). These documents form part of the regulatory framework for Early Childhood Education (ECE).
