Viewbank Pre-school will be having an assessment and rating visit from the Education Department on Monday 27th of November.
We will have an officer from the department in attendance from 8am until 4.30pm.
The officer will be observing our program with red group children in session. Barb will also be conducting interviews in the office in the morning.
The assessment and rating process is designed to be a cooperative approach with opportunities for services to discuss and supply evidence on how they are meeting the National Quality Standard and embracing outcomes for children.
No changes to our normal routine.
Show your support for Viewbank Preschool by coming down to Bunnings Eltham on Sunday October 29 to buy a sausage! We'll also need a sizeable team to keep the sausages coming throughout the day - a volunteer roster will be available at the kinder by September.
VIEWBANK PRESCHOOL HAS A BOAT!
We are very excited to announce we have a new boat which has been installed along the side fence. Our new boats name is DORY.
Our boat is the start of our wonderful plan to make our yard an amazing outdoor play space. We plan to extend this space to include a dry river bed and a fruit forest.
We are calling on families for donations for our boat play space. This may be old life vests, lifesaving rings, pebbles, rocks or any prop which would suit this sea-side/river theme.
We are also looking for helpers to continue to work on this project throughout the year. If you have an interest or expertise and would like to help develop our outdoor space please let one of our teachers know. DORY needs a new coat of paint. We need someone to help us draw up our garden plan so our boat sub-committee can plan step 2.
Hoping you can help.
