Welcome back to Erina Kindergarten for 2020. We hope that you enjoyed the Christmas and New Year holiday period. We would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new families to Erina Kindergarten. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to the Director or your child’s Educators.
At Erina Kindergarten we encourage all family contributions and input. If you have any special skills that you would like to share with the children (e.g. cooking,
languages, physical activities) please let us know so that we can arrange a suitable time for you to join us.
We also like to learn about your family interests and cultures so that we can incorporate this information
into our everyday program.
Your child’s teachers and I are always available to discuss your ideas and suggestions. We also appreciate any family input about your child’s current interests or anything you have done on the weekends, this can be shared with your child’s educators though Story park, email photos to be passed onto your child’s class to email@example.com or there is also a for “weekend sheet” at each sign in desk you can fill out.

A warm welcome back and wishing all our families a happy & safe 2020!
We will continue to donate & fund raise to various causes related to the bushfires – the local NSW RFS, Wires and other smaller campaigns for those directly affected by the fires. We’re so inspired by our peers in the business community, and at the efforts of individuals all over the globe in raising awareness and funds for those affected. Whatever your ideological beliefs, I am sure we can all acknowledge that the time of mindless consumption needs to come to an end and we urge you if you are choosing to spend money at this time, support smaller businesses, especially those in the affected areas. Many of the local shops, hotels, cafes, makers and artisans are relying on our dollars to support their rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts.
We will be offering lots of new and exciting activities & excursions this year for our Snugglepots, Gumnuts and preschoolers but also please check out our events displayed on our events calendar on our notice board or on our website at www.erinakindergarten.com.au we look forward to another exciting year at Erina Kindergarten.
Our office has an open-door policy so please feel free to pop in for a chat!

School Reunion afternoon tea
We have planned our School reunion afternoon tea for Wednesday the 11th of March 2020 at 3:30pm in the field area. This is a chance for all of our school leavers to visit their old educators & friends at Erina Kindy in their big school uniform.
A sun safe reminder, we ask families to take their child’s hats home each day and ensure you arrive wearing your hat. We do stress the need to bring a hat daily with your child & it will be stored in their individual locker promoting responsibility & ownership of the children for their belonging & improve the hygienic storage of hats. Children will be asked to wear hats for outdoor play. Children who do not have a hat, must play in sheltered areas or stay inside.
Children are required to wear protective clothing when outside. This includes: hats and shirts that cover their shoulders and necks.
Sun cream is available at each Centre. Children will be encouraged to apply this before going outdoors.
Educators of the month
At Erina Kindergarten we pride ourselves on having high quality Educators that have been a part of our team for many years. We like to recognize Educators that have demonstrated excellence by awarding them with an Educator of the Month Award.
This month one of our Early Childhood Teachers from the Koala room Miss Joanne for her creativity & enthusiasm. Miss Analyn from the main kitchen for her dedication & amazing work ethic.
We look forward to celebrating two amazing Educators each month. Please remember we are happy to take nominations from families also!
