Good communication between Educators, Nannies, Visiting Teachers and families/whānau ensures a greater understanding of the needs of all parties. Gingerbread Cottage promotes communication in many ways, some of which are detailed below.
Family/whānau are invited to participate in surveys and reviews that are appropriate and applicable to their child’s care and education.
You are able to contact our Visiting Teachers at any time – by email, mobile and landline phone during office hours.
Our Office Administrator is available during office hours to assist you with your enquiries and an on-duty Visiting Teacher is available after-hours when assistance is required
We communicate with parents and whānau through regular newsletters and our website information and Facebook. We encourage parents and whānau to contribute to their child’s Learning Journal thereby strengthening the links between home and the child’s care environment.
During the year workshops are held for Educators on a wide range of topics including updating of Ministry of Education regulations, teaching practices, Policy and Procedure reviews.
