Please fill in the time of your arrival and departure in the daily ‘sign in and out’ sheet which is displayed in the reception area. In an emergency this ‘sign in’ sheet is used to ensure all the children are accounted for.
If you wish to increase or decrease the hours/days your child is booked to attend, a notice period of one week is required and the appropriate form is available from staff.
Who can pick my child up?
- Adults listed on the enrolment form (with photo identification), or;
- With an adult whose name and relationship to the child has been made known to the Centre (in writing) by parents, prior to picking up the child.
The Centre must be made aware of any custodial issues and confidentially will be maintained at all times.
If my child is sick
As stated in our Enrolment Policy and the consent you have provided in the Enrolment Form, children are not to be brought to the Centre when they are unwell and/or suffering any condition that is capable of being transmitted to other children. Please keep children at home if they show any of these symptoms – High temperature, unidentified rash, inflamed throat, sore/red eyes, upset stomach. Ministry of Health Regulations state that children can return to the Centre 48 hours after symptoms reside. We would appreciate a phone call to inform us of any sickness or absence.
If your child is able to return to the Centre, but is on medication, we can assist with this. The medication register must be filled out and signed by parents every day that medication is required. For long term medication, such as asthma, you can fill in a Medication Action Plan which give authority to staff to administer when required.
The Centre shall be entitled, in the event of a medical emergency to seek appropriate medical advice or treatment as they consider necessary in the best interests of the child and if necessary, to take the child to hospital in an ambulance. The Centre shall immediately contact the parent and/or emergency contact in the event of an unwell child requiring medical treatment. The parent and/or emergency contact will be required to collect the child as soon as possible.
Children who have been enrolled at the Centre for a minimum of three months are entitled to a maximum of 4 weeks’ holiday per year. This leave is Pro rata dependent on the days and weeks of attendance within the holiday year. The number of holidays will be calculated from the date of enrolment at a rate of 50% of the regular parent portion of weekly fees, calculated after deduction of any discounts or subsidies and you cannot take more than 3 weeks holidays at an y given time. Holiday days are not able to be redeemed for cash.
A notice period of two weeks is required prior to the first day of the holiday, then only 50% of the usual weekly fees are payable to hold your child's place.
We reserve the right to charge full fees in the event of the notice period not being provided.
If your child is absent over their entitled holiday allocation the full fee will be charged to hold their place at the Centre.
Full fees are applicable for any statutory holiday that falls on a day when your child would normally attend throughout the year.
