In case of accident or emergency, every effort will be made to contact the parents immediately.
In the event that my child requires urgent Medical attention, I ___________________________________ (Parent/Guardian), authorise the staff of Walkley Heights Child Care Centre to obtain medical assistance which they deem necessary, and agree to pay any medical and transport costs incurred.
I agree to indemnify Walkley Heights Child Care Centre, and its staff, against any liability relating to, or incidental to, Walkley Heights Child Care Centre custody and care of my child, except where such liability is directly caused by any willful act or omission of Walkley Heights Child Care Centre or its servants or agents.
It is the responsibility of parent/guardians to ensure that the enrolment form is completed in full, and returned to the Centre prior to commencement of care. This form provides the Centre’s link to you as parents/guardians in case of an emergency.
I understand that the fees must be paid regardless of attendance, eg sickness, Public Holidays, or Annual Leave and I understand there will be no swapping of day or “making up” of days not attended.
Fees for holidays must be paid in advance prior to your child commencing such leave.
If my fees are in arrears for more than two weeks and no arrangements have been made with the Centre, my child’s place will be withdrawn. Should I fail to pay my fees and my place is withdrawn or when I leave the Centre I will be liable for all additional costs incurred by the Centre in collecting the outstanding fees.
Full fees are payable until my Child Care Benefit Confirmation is received by the Centre.
Notice: When my child is leaving Walkley Heights Child Care Centre or reducing the number of days of attendance, I must give two weeks written notice or pay appropriate fees in lieu of such notice
If your child requires Paracetamol (eg Panadol or Nurofen), asthma puffers, antibiotics, medicated creams, or any other medication, you will be required to complete the details in the Medication Book located in the child’s room.
The page will look something like this:
If your child has had Panadol or Nurofen (or similar medication) before attending to child care, we require them to remain absent from the service for at least 24 hours, from their last dose in order to assist with preventing the spread of illness and infections across our service. Please speak with a staff member if you have any questions or concerns.
