Monday, 27 August we had a wonderful gathering of special menfolk at Preschool to celebrate Fathers Day. We had a campfire, cooked damper and toasted our marshmallows. It was a great opportunity for the children to be able to show off their preschool, artwork and creations, and favourite activities, while having time with someone special.
Hubworks! now at Preschool
Our families may have noticed a change in the way our fees are invoiced lately. This is because we have a new program called Hubworks! which keeps enrolment and fee information about each of our children.
With Hubworks! enrolments are done online, making the process of enrolling much easier. Once an online enrolment form is completed, all the children's information is automatically put on to our system. Parents are able to log in at any time through a special portal to see, and update, their enrolment information. Parents are also able to check their fee statement to see what fees are still owing and what has been paid. Another feature of Hubworks! is iPay - an automated fee payment service, which allows parents to sign up to have their fees taken out of their account regularly or in a lump sum, without having to worry about it.
For all our existing families, you will soon receive your log in details to allow you to go in and adjust enrolment information and check fee statements. There is also a message board, where we can put important messages or reminders and a gallery for snaps of what is happening at preschool at the moment. If you are interested in iPay, you are able to sign up for it when you log in under your profile.

"But I don't want to go to Preschool!"
"Mum don't leave me!"
Separation anxiety is the common and normal fear that children have of being away from their parents or carers. It occurs in some children when they initially start Preschool, and in others it can occur after a few weeks into Preschool when the “newness” has worn off.
It's not far into term 3, but we have already had an excursion, the arrival of a baby and lots of Japanese words being used. We are getting ready to start our bush kindy program, have a yellow day for Daffodil day, dress up for book week, and of course go to our own Little Groovers on the Green festival! So much to do so little time!
