Welcome to all our families,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our new families into the Centre and part of our Kindy family A big thank you to our current families who have recommended us to their friends. We love hearing all the good things about us & welcoming new families. Also don’t forget about our $100 reward program. Please ensure all of your child’s belongings are clearly named. With the cooler weather approaching can you please pack warmer clothes for your children as well as shoes for outside play in the afternoons. We do have heaters in the rooms, however once we go outside in the afternoons it can become quite chilly. As it is getting colder I would also suggest a spare set of warmer clothes packed into their bags in case of any accidents throughout the day. Can I ask you all too please keep your accounts up to date, if you are experiencing any difficulties please pop in and see me or contact Mim our accounts controller on 0452007995. You can send a text and leave a message and Mim will get back to you as soon as she can  or email mim@allyskindy.com.au. If you haven’t already please supply us with your current email address. You will never miss a thing and receive our Newsletters & individual class emails every week.I would like to say how great it was to see so many of our mum’s able to make it to our Mother’s Day morning tea last Friday, it was wonderful to see everyone involved in activities with all the children, you will be able to see some of these photos on our face book page.
