Our Daily Routine
Parents are requested to apply sunscreen on their child before/on arrival. When signing in, the responsible adult must:
Confirm that sunscreen has been applied
Advise what time sunscreen is due to be reapplied
Nominate your child's pick up person
Please advise your teacher if your child is currently taking any medication or if there is anything else that may be important for your teacher to be aware of during the day.

(Please Note: The routine is a guide only as we provide a child-centred, play based program. This means we are following the children’s interests and needs each day and the program changes accordingly.)
When collecting children, please ensure:
You sign your child out
You review the comments that describe your child's day
Please double check your child has not left anything behind (eg. water bottle)
You check your family pigeon hole for any important notices
All parents/families must sign their child in each morning and sign them out each afternoon. This is a legal requirement and it is a part of our legal obligations in regards to licensing and also fire safety. The sign-in book is the roll we have to use to check off the children in a fire evacuation, and if it is incomplete, we are not able to legally account for all members of the class.
