Please be aware that all current families are required to re-enrol for the new year and that all current bookings end Friday 20th December 2013.
As a condition for re-enrolment in 2014, all accounts must be settled and the 2014 Registration Fee paid before the process of re-enrolment is complete. We have just sent out Term 4 reminder invoices and ask that families arrange payment by the end of term.
The Education and Care Services National Regulations 160-162 state that we cannot accept a child into our care unless correct enrolment information is completed, authorisations are signed and health information including immunisation records are provided as requested.
Due to these regulations we would like to note that families that have not returned their completed 2014 Enrolment Forms and paid their 2014 Registration Fee and account will not be accepted for care in the new year until this process has been completed. Non-enrolled children who arrive for care will have to be sent to the school office.
2014 enrolment packs are available for collection from DBOOSH now.
OOSH’s Got Talent
In week 6 our senior children participated in OOSH’s Got Talent with another eastern suburbs OOSH centre. Our children preformed a parody breakfast TV program with their very own script at one of our local nursing homes. The residents had a great time while both centres went head to head in entertaining the residents. Both centres did such a great job it was decided they are all winners and received a trophy to share. We congratulate the children that participated!
We wished Amelia an early goodbye for the year as she left for a trip to Japan last Thursday. We are sure she will have an enjoyable safe trip and look forward to her return in the New Year. We’ve even asked her to send us some photographs to share!
Summer Vacation Care
Be sure to book your place for vacation care on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th December 2013! We have some fun in-house activities planned in the lead up to the Summer break. Information for local OOSH services running vacation care throughout January is also available. We suggest these programs be booked as soon as possible as many book out before the end of term!!
iDebit – Our New Direct Debit Payment System
We have a new payment option for families to set up direct debit payments to keep on top of weekly fees. Currently we have some families already using it and it has been very successful! Payment can be from a bank account or credit card and is all managed by our direct debit provider iDebit. All information provided is confidential in compliance with our Confidentiality Policy.
PLEASE NOTE: as of 2014 all families will be required to transition to our iDebit payment service by the following dates:
– New families from 1st January 2014
– Current families by 30th June 2014
