We have been receiving some Kiwifruit in the basket of late.
Please be aware of the signs throughout the centre, and at the sign-in counter that Kiwifruit is not permitted on the premises due to an increasing number of children with severe allergies that attend Green Gables.
We are allergy aware, and adopt a zero tolerance approach to the children's well-being.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We have received some calls recently from Parents concerned that they have not been receiving our Daily Dairy emails.
Our staff email out to all families every day to ensure that you are receiving timely communication about the goings on at Green Gables, and the activities of your children. If you are not receiving these emails, please let us know so we can confirm your email address.
It is also a good idea to check your Spam/Junk folder as emails with multiple recipients can sometimes end up there.

Today at our Australia's Biggest Morning Tea we raised $320 to support the work of the Cancer Council.
Our sincere thanks to all the Parents, Grandparents, family & friends that attended for their generosity.
We are thrilled to announce that Rockdale Council have approved our plans for renovation.
Our plans were lodged during December 2011, and working closely with Council we were able to achieve a fantastic result.
The completed plans will ensure that Green Gables maintains its homely and warm atmosphere, while allowing for some much needed space for 12 Infants (0<2yrs), additional Toddler & Pre-School facilities, another children's bathroom, new staff facilities & office, and heaps of storage. We will also be providing on site parking for staff and parents, and landscaping to the front yard.
HELP NEEDED - The search is now underway in ernest to find the right builder to complete this project. Can you help? If you are a builder and would be interested in quoting, or can make any recommendations, we would be happy to provide a copy of plans for quotes. Please contact us to discuss.

Have you ever heard about the Baby & Kids Market?
The Baby & Kids Market is the place to buy excellent quality pre-loved items by great brands at bargain prices. From prams to cots, toys to books and clothes to shoes - this market has it all. You will find great brands in the best pre-loved condition, such as Country Road, Pumpkin Patch, Phil & Ted, Esprit, Peg Perego, Fed Bare - just to name a few!
Running since 2003, this is Australia's original & largest market of its kind, and consistently praised for its high quality goods. The Baby & Kids Market provides parents with the opportunity to save significant money raising their children when they shop at the market, and they can even make money when the time comes for them to become a stallholder themselves. We are super excited as the Baby & Kids Market is coming to Hurstville! The Market is a fun morning for the whole family with free entertainment and activities for the kids and bargains for Mums & Dads!
