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.
