OSHC News Week 6
My Time Our Place: This week the program has focussed on sustainability and the environment which has seen the children brainstorm ideas on to make the service more sustainable. The children have thought about their impact on our planet and participated in a variety of activities such as creating an environmentally aware iMovie, creating paper trees and making recycling posters for the OSHC room. Outside the children have been playing on the playground, the oval and the sandpits.
April Vacation Care Booklet: The April Vacation Care booklet is available from the front office, the OSHC room and online.
Education Standards Board: During week 5 the service had a spot check from the Education Standards Board which reviews the service based on the NQS . The service was pleased with the outcome and review of the service.
Receptions: The educators are no longer collecting the receptions from their classrooms. This will encourage children to gain independence and confidence as they begin their transition into school routine. Parents please remind your children and their teachers if they will be attending OSHC in the afternoons.
Medications: If your child requires medication please ensure that you have provided an action plan as well as the medication (asthma pump, epipen etc.) to the service. It is vital that we have access to your child’s medication at our service whilst your child is attending.
Hats: As part of our sun safety policy all children are required to wear a hat if they are playing outside. Please remind your child/children to bring their hats from their classroom if they are attending the service.
Absentees: A reminder to all parents and caregivers to contact the service on 8443 5308 if their child(ren) are no longer attending their sessions or have been collected early from school.
Active After School: If your child is going to attend an after school activity please notify the service in advance. If our Educators have not been notified by parents/caregivers the children will be unable to leave the service.
Dietary Requirements: At our service we aim to cater to children’s needs as much as possible, however, if your child has specific dietary requirements or does not like the food programmed for the day please pack an alternative snack or drop off food alternatives at the service.
