Vacation Care - July 2022
Hours of operation: 7.00am - 6.00pm
Bring a hat: Hats “No Hat - No Play Policy”. Norwest Christian College hats MUST be broad brimmed or legionnaires style for maximum sun protection.
Sun Safety: Our ‘Sun Safety Policy’ states that all children attending the centre must wear clothing with sleeves; at least covering the shoulders. Singlets, midriff tops and strapless dresses are not permitted and all mid-sections must be covered. Please ensure that your child/ren has adequate clothing with them to accommodate all possible weather conditions. Children are reminded to apply sunscreen to protect themselves throughout the day. The Centre provides Cancer Council 30+SPF sunscreen. If your child has allergies or is sensitive to specific products please provide suitable sunscreen. We also recommend, that children do not wear ‘special’ clothes, as activities planned are often messy.
Food and Drink: All children are required to bring a labelled refillable drink bottle. Children must bring their own morning tea and lunch and must be packed in a labelled lunchbox (NOT lunchbag) to be able to be stored inside the refrigerator. This is to ensure all foods are stored and served at safe temperature i.e. below 5° C. Please note that while we ensure foods are stored safely, we will not be heating up foods due to limited heating facilities available. Breakfast will be supplied for those children arriving before 8.00am. Afternoon tea will be provided each day.
Peanuts: Norwest Christian College asks parents not to send foods to Vacation Care that contain any peanut or nut products.
Footwear: Enclosed shoes must be worn at all times. No scuffs, thongs or sandals are to be worn.
Behaviour: The Norwest Christian College Code of Conduct and the specific rules associated with Vacation Care must be adhered to at all times. Bullying, rudeness, inappropriate language and any dangerous and/or destructive behaviour will not be tolerated. Children whose behaviour is deemed inappropriate will receive a warning and a parent/guardian will be informed. If the behaviour continues the centre will contact the parents and may terminate the child’s enrolment in the program.
Medication: If your child requires medication while at Vacation Care the following procedure applies:
Supply the medication in its original packaging, labelled with the child’s name and dosage. Where necessary include instructions for how to administer the medication.
Fill out a ‘permission to administer medication’ form available at the Centre.
