Winter Newsletter

June 6, 2022

Hi Everyone, hope you are all surviving the cold snap.

We would like to remind everyone that although kids don’t seem to feel the cold, it is freezing at OOSH in the afternoon once the sun goes down.  We are encouraging the kids to put on jumpers or jackets after 4.30, however, a lot of children don’t have anything warm with them as they have come to school when the sun is shining, they are running about and the classroom is warmed. Can you please remind them to put a jumper in their bags.

We love the kids to be “free spirits”, and feel that running barefoot is great for their development and for when we are in Elouera.  However, we have had a lost shoe or two so please check the childrens shoes on pickup and perhaps write their names inside.

Avalon has a wonderfully diverse community and with our Vacation care program well under way, we are going to incorporate a cultural day.  We are going to have lunch with foods from the children’s culture to share.  We would love our families to bring a dish to share or a simple recipe for us to make with the children.

If you have any suggestions for our Educational Program here at Avalon OOSH, please feel free to complete our ideas form located on our website at the following link:

The program will be available online next Friday.  Don’t forget our Vacation care fees will be increasing to $75.00 daily.  This fee includes all activities and any excursions.
Our After School Care session fee will also increase in term three to $25.00 per Child (before Subsidy). If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact us prior to the end of Term 2: [email protected]

Thanks everyone for your continued support.
