Good communication leads to Happy Kids!

Jul 1, 2019

It takes a village to raise a child; and when your child is at Kids on Beaufort, we like to think of ourselves as an important part of your village.

And what makes the village work? Communication!

We love talking to our parents, we encourage it and we invite all our mums and dads to be part of the daycare experience for their child. And while we all admit we love just having a chat and talking about your wonderful children; communication is actually vital in the running of our Centre.

We want to make sure your child stays happy and confident during their time here, so here’s why we want to keep good communication with you!

If you’re happy – we’re happy!

You are trusting us with your precious children every day and we are so grateful for this! But we want you to be happy to leave your child with us. So talk to us. Tell us about their bad dreams or restless nights, sniffles or coughs, important events in their lives, their latest likes and dislikes…it all helps us get to you know your child, so that we can make their experience even better.

And while nobody likes criticism – tell us if they have had a bad day with us (not that they ever will!). We want to know how they feel about their time at Kids on Beaufort, so keep communicating with us on your child’s needs.

If you’re happy – they’re happy!

Your child spends up to 10 hours a day with us, so they will think of us as an extension of their family. Which is only positive if they see us all getting along! If your child sees you enjoying a conversation with their carer, they will feel more comfortable and at ease with us.

If we’re happy – everyone wins!

There’s always going to be times when we need to discuss things with you regarding your child. We appreciate that parents are busy and pick-up and drop-off times can be hectic. But if we indicate that we need to talk to you, please give us a few minutes so that we can work out any problems that might be arising with your child.
