Please note: Some of the following details only apply to the Before & After School Care.
A 1:10 adult to child ratio exists within the centre and a 1:8 ratio for out of centre excursions.
We welcome individual and on-going communication from you regarding your child. We will communicate on a regular basis with you on your child’s care details e.g. homework, behaviour etc. We require to be notified as soon as possible of any changes in family circumstances that may affect our contact with you (e.g. address, phone number, custody arrangements). Please advise us of any changes in writing, via text to 027 555 6092 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
The welfare and interest of the children and their families is our first and paramount consideration. We will treat each child with respect, tailoring discipline to meet the need of the child in a caring and loving way. We choose to offer children a positive parenting approach which includes some firm boundaries. As a last resort children will be given “Time Out” in an appropriate place (e.g. at a craft table or on a chair) under supervision of staff at all times. Children are not physically punished, disciplined or treated in a way that is degrading, humiliating or causes fear or anxiety. The safety and well being of all children will always be paramount. If a child jeopardises the safety or well being of another or the whole group then they will be asked to leave the Centre.
