Young Academics Early Learning Centre - Smeaton Grange
We have had a very busy and fun filled June at Young Academics Smeaton Grange! We are very proud to have been awarded Most Outstanding Child Care Service at the Camden Wollondilly Local Business Awards this month.
Each month we hold a variety of special events and incursions based on the children’s interests and community events. The children have enjoyed several incursions this month! The children in Nursery 2, Toddlers and Preschool rooms had a great time when they participated in a tennis skills clinic where they put their hand-eye coordination skills into practice and learnt some new gross motor skills too.
All of the children were very excited to have a visit from the fire brigade this month! The fire fighters spoke with the Preschool children about what firefighters do and fire safety. The Preschool children then got to have a turn sitting in the fire engine and spraying water from the hose. The Nursery and Toddler children were involved too - they got to sit in the fire engine and loved hearing the loud siren.
We finished off the month with a visit from everyone’s favourite giraffe – Healthy Harold! Harold taught the Preschool children all about staying healthy and our parents enjoyed the session just as much as the children did. For more information about our service please contact us on 1300 668 993.

Ausure Insurance Brokers Macarthur Pty Ltd Insurance for the Childcare Industry
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.
We can tailor policies to include the following:
• Public & Products Liability
• Professional Indemnity
• Property in your Care, Custody & Control
• Business Interruption
• Breakdown of Machinery & Electronic Equipment
• Statutory Liability
• Personal Accident for Children
• Personal Accident for Volunteers
• Management Liability (including Directors & Officers Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Taxation Audit and other benefits)
This covers all childcare services* including Long Day Care/Preschool/Vacation Care/Before & After School Care/Nannies *excludes home day care

Domina General Insurance Brokers Cyber Insurance for Childcare Centres
What would happen if your centre was a victim of a cyber attack ? How would you respond ? Would the private information about the children in your care and their families, as well as your staff be protected ?
All businesses these days are open to cyber attacks and cyber crime. In fact, statistics tell us that a business is more likely to be the victim of cyber crime than suffer a fire.
Cyber Protection Insurance has been developed to protect businesses who are the victims of cyber crime. In fact, Cyber Protection Insurance also covers a whole range of scenarios that relate to the internet operations of a business. Consider the following :-
- An email is received in your centre and it has a virus attached. The email is opened and as a result your computer system fails
- An email is received in your centre with a virus attached and you unknowingly forward that email to another business. They open the email and their system is affected
- Educational information is downloaded on to your website without permission of the owner of that information
- An inappropriate post is made on your facebook page, leading to a threat of legal action
- Your centre receives a cyber extortion email telling you to pay an amount otherwise your computer system will be attacked
Traditional insurance policies do not provide protection against any of these scenarios. And that is why you need Cyber protection Insurance.
Domina General Insurance Brokers deals with a range of insurers who specialise in this important cover.
Call us on 0242 552855 or 0438 336646, or contact us via the web at www.domina.com.au

Types of Child Care
Whether you’re new to childcare or an old hat, you can’t help but be confused by the different titles given to child care services these days. Here’s a guide to help you work out what your options are.
Long Day Care
Long day care is just that – child care that is available from early in the morning to early evening, breakfast to dinner. The best option for parents who work the typical nine to five, long day care usually services children from around six weeks to six years, and tend to provide meals, nappies as well as developmental and school readiness programs for the children. Centres remain open during school holidays.
Long day care centres are predominantly approved child care, so parents whose children attend are eligible for the child care benefit. Centres can be run by communities, local councils, private operators and occasionally even employers and companies looking to make their business more family-friendly.
Family Day Care
Family Day Carers look after a smaller number of children in their own home. As a part of a network of caregivers carefully monitored by a family day care scheme, they provide care and developmental activities for the children, and are often more flexible with their hours – some can even include weekends and overnight stays for shift workers.
Family Day Care is generally aimed at non-school-aged children, but depending on the carer can be available to primary school children before and after school. Parents whose children attend Family Day Care are eligible for the child care benefit.
Pre-school or kindergarten is usually for children between the ages of 3 – 5 and is designed to educate children before they begin school. Hours and setup are similar to that of a school – start at 9, finish at 3 and children are required to bring their own lunch and snacks. Centres tend to be closed during the school holidays.
Pre-schools and kindergartens can be privately or council run, or can be an initiative of a community or a part of another service such as long day care or occasional care.
Occasional Care is designed for parents who require care for short periods of time for children from about six weeks to school age. Care can be provided for an hour or more per day on an irregular (or occasional) basis. Centres often provide developmental activities as the opportunity to socialise with other children for children who are not in regular care or pre-school. Occasional care can be run privately, by local councils or be a community centre, and is often attached to a pre-school or long day care centre.
Before and After School Care
Often referred to as OOSH (Outside of School Hours) is run mainly for primary-school-aged children and opens for care before and after school hours, as well as pupil-free days during school terms. This kind of care is ideal for parents who work typical nine to five days and are unable to drop off and pick up their children at the standard times.
Centres typically provide recreational activities and are usually associated with schools, occasional care centres and preschools.
Vacation care is designed for school-aged children during school holidays. With hours comparable to that of a long day care centre, children are provided with a variety of indoor and outdoor recreational activities, including outings such as the beach or movies. Vacation care is usually offered by before and after school care services.
A nanny is a single carer that cares for the children inside the home and may or may not live with the family. Nannies are typically employed by the parents directly, with hours and duties negotiable. Typically, a nanny’s duties revolve solely around the care of the children, however some nanny’s also undertake domestic tasks such as cooking and cleaning.
Parents looking to hire a nanny also have options such as an Au Pair, which is typically a young person from another country who provides child care in return for board and a small allowance, as well as nanny sharing with another family.
