Sickness

Please do not send your child to Djanaba if you suspect that they are coming down with an infectious disease.

Authority to Collect

If you are unable to collect your child from the centre at the advised pick up time, it is very important to notify the Director, so that they are aware someone else will be collecting your child. Only people listed on the enrolment form under ‘Other Persons Authorised to Collect my Child” will be permitted to collect your child (unless the Direct has been otherwise notified).

Parent/ Staff Communication

Please feel free to discuss with staff any concerns you may have regarding your child. Please be assured that the discussion will remain confidential. Be aware that staff are trained early child educators and have chosen to work in this field. Talk with staff and establish a pattern of communication and exchange of information.

Please understand that staff may not always be able to stop and talk in detail about your child. If you wish to have a more detailed conversation, please request to book a consultation with the teacher.

If you have a concern in regards to the centre, please discuss your concern with Jann, our Director. If you are not satisfied with the response, please write to our CEO at [email protected]
