Since Koula's departure we have advertised, interviewed, observed and finally we have some great news for you...
This week we welcomed Katrina Lynn to the Green Gables team and family. She is mature minded, friendly, organised and most importantly, passionate about engaging with children, exploring their interests and helping them learn through play.
She comes to us with experience and her certificate 3 in children's services. She also holds other valuable qualifications including certificates in First Aid, Anaphylaxis Management and Asthma Management and is currently completing her Diploma in Children's Services.
We look forward to getting to know Katrina better and can't wait to see what her fresh eyes bring to the caterpillar Room, where she will be working each Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday with Sapphire, Amanda & Nicole.
Please introduce yourself to Katrina and help her feel at home. If you have any queries please approach your child's teachers.
Next Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday are photo days at Kindy (17th, 18th & 20th September). Each child will be photographed in various naturalistic settings and group photos will also be taken. Ido, the photographer, is great with kids and you will be amazed at the images he captures.
Proofs will be available for viewing a few weeks after the shoot and orders can be placed then.
Dear Parents and Friends,
With the recent release of Staying Healthy in Child Care 5th edition (our go to source for anything relating to health and hygiene) we have updated our policies. Many have not changed apart from the source information but our Nose Wiping Policy contains a procedural change.
Previously educators were required to wear gloves for wiping noses. With the review, gloves are now optional but of course hand washing afterwards or the use of an alcohol-based rub is necessary. We are very interested in your feedback so please use a policy feedback form from under the sign in counter.
The revised Policy is currently on the parent information wall and will be sent via email shortly.
All the team at Green Gables Kindergarten contribute to this Blog.
