When working with our preschool children there are a few hard and fast rules. I have names some of the most important below:
We use teaching tools like, redirection, calm down time, and effective communication to build strong bonds and teach them right from wrong.
Kindly ensure that your children arrive to school with a clean nappy in the morning.
Our teachers are certified in first aid.
Children do bite, this is a universal characteristic of children under the age of 5. Feel free to contact me for more information, and click below for some good reading on the topic.
Holidays: We are open during all school holidays except the December Christmas break. This is always quite a long break and we utilize this time to do renovations, paint etc. As owner of the school, this is not a period of rest for me. Therefore I do take a break in the winter where my cell phone will be off and the school will be run by our very capable staff.
Sick Policy: We will notify you immediately should your child develop any of the following symptoms:
- Underarm temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or over.
- Vomiting or diarrhea
- Any rash other than a mild diaper or heat related rash.
Symptoms must be gone for 24 hours prior to re-attendance.
Authorized Persons: Occasionally your child may need to be picked up from care. Unless previously arranged, and clearly communicated with the teachers prior to collection, your child will not be released. In case of an emergency, please communicate with Charlene Botha.
Medications: Prior to administering prescription medication, we must have written instructions for each medication. Please complete the forms at either reception area when medication is required.
