About Our Service

Management Committee

Cribb Street Childcare Centre is an incorporated, not for profit organisation. We have an elected Management Committee consisting of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and auxiliary members. The Committee holds general meetings on a quarterly basis and are advertised on our closed Families Facebook page. Parent contribution is considered vital to the effective management of the Centre and the committee welcomes open parent communication and feedback. Enrolment at the centre provides automatic membership to both parents as ordinary members of the association.

Orientation

Starting at a new childcare centre is at times overwhelming with new information, procedures and settling your child into a new environment.

Families will be encouraged to spend as much time as possible with their child at the centre discussing information about them and their routines with Educators. This gives the child a chance to familiarise him/herself with the setting whilst having someone familiar by their side.

We encourage families to contact the centre at any time to check on their child and how their day is progressing. Families are also welcome to visit at any time of the day, without prior notice. If you feel your child is having difficulty settling into the centre, please feel free to discuss this with Educators in your child’s room or the centre Director.

Further information is provided to families in the centre’s enrolment pack to aid in the transition and settling process.
