Weekly Notice - 06/02/2015

February 6th, 2015 by

Dear Parents

Please find the following notices for your information.


First I couldn’t and now I can!  I am pleased to advise that due to new management our caterer will be providing a weekly menu which I will display in our reception area (on the wall near the giant turtle logo).  The coming week’s menu will be displayed and is also attached for your convenience.  Note the menu is still subject to last minute changes depending on supply.

Centre numbers

We are taking new enrolments almost every day so are child numbers are increasing across all rooms – if there’s anyone you know who might like childcare, please let them know that now is the time they should get in touch to talk about their childcare requirements.

Over 3s Library Excursions

Over 3s will be visiting the Library for Story Time on the first Friday of every month and the third Wednesday of every month to allow for pre-school days so no-one misses out.

Nappies and wipes

Please remember to check your child’s bag for notes about re-stocking nappies and wipes.  We have some spares on hand for emergencies only.

Spare clothes

Fun activities are often very messy, even getting a drink from the bubbler can be a messy experience for a Toddler!  So please pack at least 3 spare sets of clothes for your child – remember no singlets or sleeve-less clothing as it does not meet our Sun Smart policy.

Label everything

We try very hard not to lose track of your child’s belongings – it’s most helpful though when everything is labelled so it can be easily identified and packed in the right bag.

Bus drop offs

The turtle bus leaves AELC at 8am sharp.  If your child is in Before School Care please make sure they are dropped off by 7.45am so we can ensure children get to school on time.  Please let us know if your child will not be on the bus in advance.

After School pick ups

If your child/ren is being collected by yourself or a friend please kindly let us know in advance so that we’re not anxiously looking for children on our list who haven’t showed up at the collection point.

As a reminder; Nhulunbuy Primary School students are met by our Educators at the front of the Transition area.  Please make sure your child knows where to go as we don’t have the resources to walk to every room to collect children (however we will still walk into Transition classrooms to personally collect the younger children from their teacher).  For Nhulunbuy Christian College students are put on our turtle bus by Teachers when we pull up at the Front Office.  For pre-schoolers we walk in to drop them off and pick them up.

For children new to catching the bus I regularly speak with all schools to ensure that admin staff and teachers know which children are expected to catch the bus to reduce the risk of confusion.

Got something on your mind?

Please make a time to meet with me if you have any concerns or questions about our Centre or services.  If you have something great to say please feel free to write us a review on our Facebook page!
