Parent roles and responsibilities
Parents in the centre
Parents play an important and valuable role in the education of their child, and your involvement is welcomed. Parents can help in a variety of formal and informal ways.
Parents are asked to please read all the documentation relating to the centre to be familiar with policy information and abide by the policies, particularly with regard to health and hygiene. All the policies are available upon request and also kept on the community laptop located in the foyer area.
If a child is absent please notify us, preferably before kindy starts.
If possible please avoid phoning during program time unless it is really urgent or we have asked you to call back to check on your child.
Teachers are usually available before and after program times.
Important: Up-to-date emergency contact numbers are essential.
Please notify the teacher if there are changes to:
Home address or phone numbers
Work address or phone numbers
Doctor’s contact details
Emergency contact details
Legal documents relating to access to the child
Please remember to keep your child’s immunisations up-to-date. When you do, please bring a copy of the immunisation records into kindy so we can update our files. Many children will have changes to their records with their four-year-old immunisations/health check.
All contact details are treated confidentially. No details are given to others without permission.
Staff members appreciate your privacy and treat confidentially information about changes in family arrangements/court orders or any changes/events that may affect a child’s behaviour.
