For the last two months, Amanda Suurd has been a valuable part of the Educator Team here. Next Thursday November 15th will be Amanda's last day at The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre. 
 
Although we are going to miss her, we know she will be back in often as a parent bringing her children.
 
Please feel free to stop in next Thursday and wish Amanda all the best!

In the spring of 2018, parents and caregivers visiting The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre were asked to complete an Early Years Parent Satisfaction Survey.  The results from the survey allowed us to learn what families enjoyed about the Child and Family Centre and where there was room for us to grow and set goals. 


We wanted to share what goals we will be focusing on for 2019.

·       Building relationships; We will continue to work towards establishing positive, responsive relationships with children and their families as we understand that learning cannot happen in the absence of quality relationships. 

·       Communication; We recognize that change can be challenging and we will continue to work towards sharing information and key messages to families on an ongoing basis in a variety of ways.  We will also continue to welcome feedback and ideas from all families.

·       Documentation; We will continue efforts to make learning visible for parents through a variety of documentation strategies.  Our hope is to support a better understanding of “How Does Learning Happen” and the way it is utilized within The EarlyON Child and Family Centre.



Thank you for working with The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre Educator Team to create quality programs.

If you have any questions at all, please let us know.

Supporting Parents in an Ongoing Understanding and Exploration of Loose Parts 
As part of our ongoing commitment to offering families high quality early learning opportunities, The Old Millbrook School EarlyON Child and Family Centre has begun introducing ‘loose parts’ into our learning environment. Loose parts are items and materials that children can use to enhance their play and exploration. They provide a high level of creativity and choice and the possibilities are endless for how they can be used. Research shows that children like to play with loose parts because they can use their imagination and have greater control in their play. 
We invite parents and caregivers to attend this Parent Info Session to learn more about the use of loose parts and ask any questions they may have.
