Happy New Year to all our families,
We know it has been a very challenging start to 2020 for so many Australians including people in our own communities.
We wish to alert parents that the Beechworth Childcare Centre currently plans to open on Tuesday 7th, however we wish to communicate the following advice:
• Air quality due to smoke remains very poor. If your child has asthma or you have any concerns about their health, please consider whether home may be the safest option for them. Please call the centre if you plan on keeping your child/children home for the day.
• As we have seen, the conditions for fire can change rapidly. Please keep in mind that the childcare centre may need to close at short notice as we have staff that live in high risk areas who may not be able to attend.
• We remind you that the centre will be closed on Code Red fire days, however we will be reviewing the risk daily and may need to close on additional days (For example, in the event of a Watch and Act notification from Vic Emergency) for the safety of our staff and children. Please understand that we will not be making these decisions lightly, and that the wellbeing of our staff and children is of the highest concern.

Thank you,
Beechworth Community Childcare Committee

Wanting to organise a gift for your child’s educators but can’t work out what to get? Finding it tricky to think of something that will be meaningful?

The Committee of Management have organised a collection, for staff to use to share a meal or go on an outing in the new year, as a huge thank you for all the remarkable work they do.

There will be a jar near where you sign in for you to pop your contribution into, or alternatively, you can pop it in an envelope in the fees box. There’ll be a card available for you to sign if you wish.

There is absolutely no obligation to be involved - it is totally up to you!
