February/March 2021

From the Director

The children have settled well into their new rooms and our new children are settling well into the Centre.
A reminder that the Centre also has a Facebook page GCIT Children’s Centre please like us on Facebook to get reminders of happening in the Centre and photo’s of your child.
Also please don’t forget to check your children’s pockets in their room as they contain more information about centre happenings.
Attached to this newsletter is a fact sheet about some important safety practices in the centre. I ask that you take the time to read this and adhere to safe practices.
We value the input that you as parents have and welcome any input that you can contribute to the Centre. This can be done in many ways and if you have a special talent or ideas that you would like to share please come and see myself or any of the staff. Your input is also used in our planning so please contribute by completing the weekend sheets. You can also email the Centre and we can print out photos for you. Please see the staff in your room for more information.
