Q: Does Little Locals offer excursions?
As part of our commitment to learning, we conduct excursions out of the centre to follow on children’s interests. Prior to any excursion taking place, parents will be advised in writing with all the required information about the planned excursion. No excursion will take place until we have received written consent from families.
Q: What do I need to bring?
To remove as many hassles as possible for busy parents, the centre provides, hat, nappies, wipes, sunscreen, and all meals. We ask that you simply bring along; 2 x changes of clothes, hat, and a water bottle.
Q: How do we communicate
As you are your child’s first teacher, you know best so when it comes to saying goodbye, rest time routines, settling techniques etc, we want to be made aware of what works for you and your family at home. Our teachers and educators will ask you for your advice and input and will also in return provide you with this information. At Little Locals we aim to provide an open-door policy and believe that communication is the key to any great relationship so please do not hesitate to ask any questions or provide feedback.
Q: Any advice on separation and saying goodbye?
It is important that you ensure you say goodbye to your child when you leave and make sure that the teacher or educator in charge knows that you are leaving. We understand goodbyes can be hard for all involved however to continue building a safe and trusting relationship we strongly acknowledge that you say goodbye and not ‘slip away’ Our educators and teachers will acknowledge any feelings and emotions that you and your child may be having and support you throughout the entire process.
