Blooming Buds will need a written action plan for children with known allergies included with the child’s enrolment form. Blooming Buds aims at creating “nut free” meals at the centre.
5What are the operating hours of the centre?
We are open Monday to Friday from 7.00 am to 6.00 pm except for public holidays.
6How does my child transition from living at home to attending regular childcare?
We offer some free transitions before your child starts with us. During this transition period, your child’s key teacher will go through the specifics of your child’s day at home. We will work closely with the child’s routine at home until your child gradually familiarises himself/herself with the rhythm of the centre.
7Does my child need to be toilet trained?
No, but we would like to introduce toilet training with your support. Children are encouraged to become familiar with bathroom arrangements. This makes the transition much more comfortable for the child. Your child’s teacher will work together with you to ensure a positive experience.
