How is your centre responding to the changes in family life? With both parents working, they are increasingly turning to the people who help look after their child to fill the gaps that they don’t have time for.
- Better communication:
Many centres offer an online communication portal for parents to access what their child has been doing at childcare. This communication may include video and photos from their child’s day. For older children it might also contain a digital portfolio of the work they complete as part of a school readiness program.
- Offer an all-in–one service:
Many centres provide all the necessary items that make starting, as well as drop-off and pickup easy for the parents.
Items to think about: food, nappies, linen
- Open Door policy:
Many centres realise that parents want to be as involved as they can with their child at the centre. For some centres this includes having a dedicated area where parents can come and enjoy lunch made by the centres kitchen or a quiet corner where they snuggle into a chair and read together.
- Extra-curricular activities:
There are many extra-curricular activities that centres can offer. why not look into languages, kindergym, soccer, music
