Children’s Christmas Party, Friday 29 November
Please come and join us for the annual WFDC Children’s Christmas Party. We run this event with our sister service, Children @ Bay Terrace. All families have been emailed the Children’s Christmas Party invitation. There is no need to RSVP – just turn up! We are looking forward to the biggest event on our yearly calendar and the chance to connect face to face with our wonderful families, children and educators.
Community Childcare Inc. (CCI)
CCI is managed by a voluntary Management Committee, which accepts overall legal and financial responsibility for Wynnum Family Day Care and Education Service. The management committee includes representatives from the stakeholder group of parents, educators and community. Each member of CCI (parents, educators, management committee members and staff) pays a $10 annual affiliation levy, as per the constitution.
WFDC has the responsibility to ensure the annual affiliation levy is collected from all families, educators and staff and paid to CCI. It was proposed at the last management committee meeting that educators will add a one-off annual charge line to each family’s HubWorks invoice to collect the $10 levy. This means that the $5 family levy on the attendance page will instead be $15 on the determined week (for one week only). We are awaiting feedback and confirmation from educators to move forward with this strategy. New families who have started care after 1st July have paid this fee as part of the enrolment levy and are not required to be charged.
Childcare needs for 2020
Please discuss with your educator about your childcare needs for 2020 – whether they will change or stay the same. If you need assistance with extra care that your educator cannot accommodate, please call Marie in the office on 3393 4311
Innovative Solutions Project
Wynnum Family Day Care and Education have successfully been approved and funded to run an Innovative Solutions Project. This project will provide our educators access to expert paediatric allied health professionals who will share knowledge and experience through modelling, providing resources and having conversations with our educators for the next 36 weeks.
