BOT PROFILE –
Tara Norton:
My name is Tara Norton and I am another new face on the board this year. My husband Scott and I have 3 children Maddi (16), Harry (13) and Lulu who is currently in the Pukeko Room. Daycare was a new concept for me as my older children had always been looked after by family so the idea was a bit daunting to begin with, but I am very pleased to say that due to a very caring and professional team of teachers and support staff my transition back to work was made very easy and Lulu just loves it! I am hoping to give back to the Centre by being a member of the BOT and offering any skills that may be of use to assist the Centre and its staff to continue to be a fantastic place for our precious little people.

REMINDER -
CHILD SIGN IN/SIGN OUT
A reminder to always sign your child IN and OUT.
The Ministry of Education requires that every child is signed in and out every day. If the Centre holds a practice fire drill and children are not signed in for the day theoretically they cannot be accounted for. We use sign in sheets as the roll in an emergency so it is important your child is included in our checks. It would also be appreciated if you could remind those people who are permitted to pick up your children to do the same. Thanks.

DAILY ABSENCES
If your child is absent for the day please call the Centre early in the morning of the absence to receive your 50% discount on the fee for the day. This also enables us to organise our staffing for the day.
