Behaviour Management/Positive Guidance
Our staff are not the child’s parents so we will not overstep the line by being too strict. Our aim with discipline is to maintain control to keep all children safe. Our staff will ensure that they convey the limits of SoulKids Crèche to your children in a positive manner; here they will learn that there are consequences of inappropriate behaviour. We will always try and diffuse a situation.When guiding children’s behaviour we refrain from using negative labelling and all staff speak in a respectful positive manner to the children. We encourage children through positive role modelling and clear guidelines should a child need behavioural management. Please note: If a child becomes disruptive and difficult, the parent/guardian will be collected and asked to calm their children.
No medication will be administered by our crèche staff. If your child requires medication for an ongoing condition i.e. asthma or has a ASCIA Action Plan please ensure that you notify the creche staff member but know that it is your responsibility to manage this personally. If there is an event where first aid is required, then staff will follow procedures in accordance with their senior first aid training.
Parents/Guardians must collect their children within 15 minutes of the class finishing. Children are still welcome to play in the crèche the waiting area after class but please know that Soul Movement Studio takes no responsibility for the care of your children once they have been collected.
Creche is subject to availability during the school holidays. In order to cover to extra expenses associated with operating the creche over this period there is a fee of $6 per school aged child per class. Payment is to be made on the day by cash or card.
What To Bring
- We encourage children who are not walking to be brought in a pram/stroller.
- The crèche staff will happily change your babies nappies if you wish. You will need to provide your own nappies, wipes, a change of clothes and any other comfort items.
- If bringing a water bottle into the crèche please ensure it is clearly labelled. • Please make sure that all bags and belongings are clearly marked with your child’s full name.
We do not encourage food to be brought into the crèche however if you do wish to bring snacks for your children it must NOT contain nuts. If children eat while in the crèche they MUST sit at the table and chairs. The crèche staff will give babies a bottle provided it has been clearly labelled with their name.
To prevent the spread of germs and illness to our staff and other children, we do not accept sick or unwell children into the creche. If our staff feel your child is too unwell to be in the creche you will be notified and you must collect your child from the creche immediately. Please do not be offended by this, as it’s for the health of all children who attend our creche.
