Parents & Carers Information


Arriving and Departing

On arrival to the centre please ensure to wash or sanitise your hands and your child’s hands at the facilities available. Adult hand washing facilities are located in the Rainforest room and the Gumnut room bathroom. Child hand washing facilities are located in both Rainforest and Gumnut room bathrooms. Hand sanitising gel is available on the bench of the front office and inside Gumnut room door.

Then proceed to your child’s room (either Rainforest or Gumnut) to sign your child in and out on the roll as well as letting a staff member know your child has arrived or departed for supervision and safety purposes.

Also ensure to place your child’s bag in their assigned locker and take it home with you at the end of the day.

What to pack in your child’s bag:

  • Spare clothes including T-shirt, shorts, jumper, long pants, underwear and socks (Please pack extra clothes if your child is toilet training.)
  • Sleep sheets including a fitted sheet and top sheet (cot size) in a pillow case- all children
  • 6 nappies or pull-up’s (if needed)
  • Comforter – if your child has a special toy, blanket or dummies (dummies for the 2-3½ yrs)
  • One piece of fruit to be placed in the baskets provided in rooms

Please remember that UKC provides all meals and beverages so please do not include food or drink in your child’s bag as this can raise health and safety concerns. UKC is also a nut free centre.

Parent Pockets

In the office foyer every family is assigned a parent pocket with your child’s last name. This is where important information is stored for families to collect including permission slips, receipts and newsletters. Please ensure to check this daily.

Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR)

Are both available for families to help reduce fee payments. Please get in contact with your local Family assistance office located in centrelink to find out how much your family is entitled to receive.

Allergies

allergy aware centre

UKC is an allergy aware centre and can cater for a wide range of allergies by simply bringing in a letter from your doctor or nutritionist. Alternatively families may opt to provide their own food for their child and a small reduction in fee’s can be arranged. We are a nut free centre as we understand this is a common and often serious allergy for small children.
