- Labelled drink bottle.
- Sunscreen. If you do not wish your child to wear the sunscreen provided by the centre please provide your own.
- All children to bring morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and any snacks/drinks required for the day. We have children attending the centre who are anaphylactic to nuts so please do not bring nut products. This is very important for their safety.
What to wear
- Comfortable clothes that can get messy!
- A sleeved shirt must be worn. Collared or polo is highly recommended. We spend a great deal of time outside and our ‘sunsafe’ policy states your child must be dressed appropriately. Children who wear clothing that is not appropriate for outside play will remain inside under supervision.
- A spare set of clothes. We may have some water play and a spare set of clothes would be a great idea.
- Closed in shoes. Your child will only be able to participate in activities if they have sensible, closed in shoes. Thongs, sandals and heels do not allow children to participate safely in all the great activities we provide.
- Jumper or jacket.
- Please label all items.
If your child would like to swim, they are welcome to join us in the Learn to Swim pool. Please send along their swimmers, a towel, goggles (optional), and a swimming cap. We will have spare swimming caps if you do not have your own. A swimming permission slip is included on the booking form.
Late collection of children
Children must be collected by 6.00pm. A late fee of $5.00 per minute is applicable for late pick-ups.
It is a legal requirement that Parents/Carers sign their child in and out of the Centre each day. Children can only leave the Centre when accompanied by a Parent/Carer or an adult nominated in the HubWorks! enrolment form. There is a section where you can enter this information. Written notification/email is required to allow another person to collect your child, if they are not already entered in the HubWorks! system.
If your child is known to have an anaphylactic reaction or episode to any allergen it is imperative that, upon enrolment, parents provide a current (printed copy) action plan that includes a photo of your child. Parents must supply an epipen/anapen labelled in a small container, if this is part of your action plan. If your child is known to have asthma it is imperative that, upon enrolment, parents provide a current asthma plan which includes a recent photo of your child. Medication must be sent with your child in a clearly labelled container.
Medication will only be administered by staff if it is in the original packaging with your child’s name on it. You will need to supply a note with instructions for administering the medication.
• If your child is unwell please keep them at home.
• If your child is unwell on arrival at the Centre you’ll be asked to take them home.
• If your child becomes unwell during the course of the day you will be contacted to arrange an alternative care plan.
The Pymble School Holiday Program is ‘Approved Child Care’. This allows families to claim the Child Care Benefit and Rebate for Kids on Campus.
The Child Care Rebate helps families cover the cost of out of pocket expenses costs of child care and is not income tested.
The Child Care Benefit is income tested and is usually paid directly to approved Child Care Services to reduce the fees that eligible families pay.
