CHILD SIGN IN/SIGN OUT
A reminder to please 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. Thanks.

DAILY ABSENCE REMINDER
If your child is absent for the day, please call the Centre before 8.30am to receive your 50% discount on the fee for the day.
This also helps with the organisaiton of our staffing for the day.

PAYMENT OF INVOICES
Invoices are available weekly to parents.
A reminder that payment is due in full seven days after receipt of invoice.
A 50% discount will be applied when we are informed if a child is sick or on holiday (with one week’s notice for holidays). There is no charge for statutory holidays that fall on a week day.
Non-attendance forms are in the kete in front of the sign sheets at Reception.

CASINO NIGHT
What an awesome fundraising night we had at the Oxford Restaurant last Saturday night.
Thanks to everyone who supported the event – the companies who donated prizes, staff and BOT who helped on the night, parents for attending, the Oxford - Mike and Clarissa and staff, those that bid and won the auctions, MC Peter Burt, Jess Loveday who made yummy desserts, and our talented musicians, Claire Burt, Neave O'Connor and Nick Goodwin.
We are very happy to report this year we made a fantastic total of $7791.
Well done everybody involved.

STAFF NEWS
Katy Jackson
The Human Resources Committee is very pleased to announce that Katy Jackson from the Kakas has been promoted into the Head teacher role in the Nursery and will commence the role on 2 July 2018.
I’m sure you will join with us in congratulating Katy on her new role.
This does still leave us with a vacant position and we are now advertising for a Nursery teacher. Sophie will be covering in the Kakas in the short term until we find a suitable applicant.

WET BAGS
In light of the effect of one use plastic bags on the environment and the supermarkets signaling that they will phase these out, Creative Corner has had to look at another method of storing wet and soiled clothing for the day until children are collected.
We have purchased wet bags and will be allocating one of these (named) to each child. This will carry a small cost of $5.00 that will be added to your account.
We envisage that children will have these bags for the duration of their time at Creative Corner and ask that parents check that they are in their children’s bag each morning. Please note heavily soiled items will still need to be placed in a plastic bag for hygiene reasons, however we feel that we can supply enough plastic bags to accommodate these rarer occurrences.
Thanks you for your support in helping us respond to the availably of bags and ultimately do our bit for the environment.

SCHOOL HOLIDAY NON-ATTENDANCE FORMS
Please complete a non-attendance form for the upcoming school holidays as soon as possible so we can better organise staff ratios required. Thanks.
