Young Academics Early Learning Centre - Elderslie  Its full steam ahead for young academics Elderslie. This service will open in 2016 and will be a new and modern service to the area. Incorporating our Young Academics Evolution curriculum in all rooms children will get a high quality education that will help them develop and grow within our 7 key learning areas.

The Young Academics Evolution Program is a holistic education framework that has been specially designed by early childhood education experts to encompass all aspects of your child’s development.

It is built upon the 5 Learning Outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), providing a blend of cultural and engaging activities tailored to the specific needs of your child. The EYLF Learning Outcomes ensure that:

·  Children have a strong sense of identity
·  Children are connected with and contribute to their world
·  Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
·  Children are confident and involved learners
·  Children are effective communicators

The 5 Learning Outcomes are designed to provide key reference indicators for our educators to use when assessing your child’s learning progress. Your child will have an ongoing Assessment of Learning that is completed throughout their years at Young Academics.

Our educators use a variety of assessment tools to collect information on your child’s learning progress and we encourage you to meet with our educators regularly to discuss your child’s learning.

Young Academics Elderslie will be overseen by an experienced team of educators and operational support who will be a constant presence in the service.   To find our more or go on our waitlist please call 1300 668 993


Ausure Insurance Brokers Macarthur Pty Ltd    Despite best intentions, compliance with regulations and a thorough risk management plan, sometimes things go wrong.

A child injured in care today can make a claim until the age of 18. Depending on the Statute of Limitations in each State and Territory, some can even claim until they’re 21.  Given it can take years to determine the full effect of an injury, it is not uncommon for someone to make a claim long after the event.    That is why it is important to have a policy that will protect you in years to come for something that happens today. Not all insurance policies do!

Ausure Macarthur’s knowledge of the childcare industry means we can compare different insurance policies to ensure you will always have the best protection, especially as needs change.
At Ausure Macarthur, we do more than simply provide you with an insurance policy. As your full service broker, we will:

We cover all childcare services* including Long Day Care, Preschool, Vacation Care, Before & After School Care and Nannies *excludes home day care.  Contact us for more information www.ausuremacarthur.com.au   Phone: 1300 633 530.

First Aid For You Looking to raise some last minute funds for your centre's Christmas event? 

First Aid For You provide their First Aid For Families workshop as a fundraising option.   Now is the perfect opportunity to get all the parents together to learn some life saving skills before the Christmas break - and raise some money at the same time!

How to make the most out of your fundraiser:

1. We have found the hardest thing when organising these events is getting people to show up! Its hard to find someone to look after the kids after work.  Why not invite the kids along for a pizza / movie night?  That way, at least one, or both parents can attend the First Aid training.

2. Have a few pricing options; Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children); Family of 3 (2 adults and 1 child); Family of 2 (1 adult and 1 child)

3. Have an option for parents just wanting some time to themselves! Drop the kids of for a pizza and movie night at a per child cost!

We have plenty of ideas here at First Aid For You and would love to help you out with your next fundraiser.  For more information, give us a call on 1300 853 050 or visit our website at firstaidforyou.com.au

Hearty Health would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year.  Why not make Hearty Health your New Year’s resolution!

PARENT INFORMATION

Sun Safety

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and unfortunately, our skin cancer rates are the highest in the world.  The good news is that skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers.  

We know that the more sun exposure individuals receive in childhood the greater their risk of developing skin cancer as adults.  

Babies and toddlers are most sensitive to sun exposure due to their delicate skin. While keeping a hat and sunglasses on a toddler is not an easy task, there are a range of measures you can take to reduce sun damage for your little ones and ensure your child care centre is equipped to provide the same protection.  

The Cancer Council recommends the following precautions.

Minimise outdoor activities during peak UV times.   UV radiation levels are highest between 10am and 3pm.   It is possible to burn on cool or cloudy days.    Use the Bureau of Meteorology’s daily SunSmart UV alert at www.sunsmart.com.au .

SunSmart hats and clothing are essential. 
Always pack a broad-brimmed hat (8-10cm brim), bucket hat (at least 5cm brim) or legionnaire cap.   Provide loose, comfortable clothing that protects the arms, legs, body and neck from the sun.   Closely woven fabrics provide better protection.

Be a SunSmart role model. 
Lead by example and ensure your child care provider follows suit.  
Make sure during outside activities staff as well as children are wearing appropriate hats, clothing, sunscreen and sunglasses.  Encourage children to play in the shade.   Check that the child care facility has adequate shade in its playground.   Ensure activities and play equipment are set up in the shade.

Use an SPF 30+, broad spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen
Apply sunscreen to body parts not covered by hats or clothing 20 minutes before going into the sun.   Reapply at least every two hours. 

Apply sunscreen in the morning at least 20 minutes before your child goes to care.  Give permission for the centre to administer sunscreen to your child.

In the case of allergies, ensure you pack appropriate sunscreen in your child’s bag that is clearly labelled.

Protect your child’s eyes with sunglasses.   There are many effective and inexpensive children’s sunglasses available.  Make sure they are close fitting around the eyes to provide maximum protection.  Check they comply with Australian Standard 1067:1998 and carry a label stating EPF 10 (Eye Protection Factor) rating 10’. 

Ensure that staying SunSmart becomes a lifestyle habit for your child. 

Look around your child care centre for posters and other items encouraging sun safety.

Sun protection should be a part of the centre’s learning program.
Choose a child care provider that participates in the SunSmart Early Childhood Program.

A program sponsored by the Cancer Council that supports child care services to develop and implement a sun protection policy.

The Cancer Council recommends that children under the age of 12 months should not be exposed to direct sunlight.
