Your child must be signed IN and OUT of the Pre-School each day by an authorised person.
Sign in books can be found on the shelves outside of each room.
On entering the Pre-School please make sure that you secure the front gate and ensure the front door is closed behind you.
Children must be brought into preschool and signed into the appropriate classroom, no earlier than 8.45am.
Please place your child’s bag in the lockers provided. Unpack morning tea and lunch and place in baskets and fridges.
Contact must be made with a staff member each time, and before leaving your child. Please use this contact time if you wish your child’s educators to know any relevant information or concerns you may have. We encourage and invite you to share special events and happenings, cultural beliefs, within your family with us so that we can incorporate these into our program and share them with your child.
When collecting your child please wait in the foyer outside your child’s room until the door is opened at 3pm for both rooms. Please make sure that you and your child say goodbye to a staff member before leaving.
If a parent does not collect children a nominated adult must collect them. (A list of adults nominated to collect your child is to be provided to the Pre-School at enrolment time and staff will strictly adhere to this list).
If your child is to be collected by a person not nominated on the enrolment document, please let the staff know in the morning when your child is delivered to Pre-School.
Late Collection of Children and After Hours
On that rare occasion that you find yourself running late please phone the Pre-School as soon as possible to let them know that you are on your way. This enables them to know what is going on and to keep your child informed.
Parents who are consistently late collecting their child will be charged a late fee of $20 per 15 minutes.
When a child is not collected from the Pre-School, staff will make every endeavour to contact the parents, or other nominated adults on the enrolment document. After a reasonable time, should staff be unable to make contact then the Director will contact the Department of Community Services and the Police Department. At that time a sign will be placed on the Pre-School door as to the whereabouts of your child.
