Embracia Childcare & Kindergarten is officially open! And we are inviting the whole community to come together and celebrate with us at our Community Open Day. We will be offering a variety of family-friendly activities like a petting zoo, face painting, sausage sizzle, raffle and tours of the centre.

Attending our event is a fantastic opportunity for parents, children and locals to meet our staff and take part in free and community-minded activities. Families who are interested in the centre can explore the facilities, gain insights into our programs, and establish connections with our amazing staff. To make the most out of this special day we wanted to share some top tips for attending the event.

Top Tips for How to Make The Most Out of The Day:

Get firsthand experience: By attending the Community Open Day, you can experience the environment and atmosphere of the childcare center and see how it aligns with your child’s needs and your expectations.

Meet the staff: Talking to staff members on the day gives you the chance to get to know them on a personal level. Meeting the educators with your child present before they attend a centre helps create a sense of trust and understanding.

Explore the facilities and resources: Use the event to tour the center’s facilities, such as classrooms, outdoor play areas, and learning spaces. This enables you to observe the available resources, equipment, and educational materials that contribute to your child’s development.

Learn about the center’s programs: Take advantage of the Open Day to learn about our curriculum, teaching philosophies, and educational approach. We encourage you to discuss these with staff to gain insights into how they facilitate learning and address individual needs.

Understand the center’s policies and procedures: The day is an ideal time to read our policies and procedures, about important aspects such as health and safety protocols, communication practices, and policies on discipline and nutrition.

Connect with other parents and the community: Events like these bring together families from the surrounding area. This provides an excellent opportunity to connect with other parents, share experiences, and foster a sense of belonging within the childcare centre community.

Obtain enrollment information: It’s an opportunity to gather information about the enrollment process, fees, and any specific requirements. This will enable you to plan and ensure a smooth transition if you decide to enrol your child in the future.

See You There!

We can’t wait to welcome the entire community to our Open Day at Embracia Childcare & Kindergarten! It’s an exciting time for us as we officially open our doors and invite you to join in the celebration. By following the top tips we’ve shared, you can make the most out of your day, gaining firsthand experience, getting to know our staff and connecting with other parents or locals.
