Your child’s health is very important to us, that is why we have the following procedures in place for when your child is sick:
We love celebrating birthdays at Funtasia, and we understand the importance of making their birthday a special occasion. To make the day extra special we have an onsite company (Funtabulous Parties) to provide party packs and/or a birthday cake, at an extra cost. You are also more than welcome to supply your own treats. Please call the office or speak to the teacher to make arrangements, accordingly.
If you experience any problems regarding your child, your child’s’ progress, another child, a teacher, school rule, finances, etc. we have an open-door policy, so please make an appointment with one of the owners, either Adre or Mariaan and we address your concerns.
We request that you do not discuss any problems with other parents or in front of the children, as this might lead to insecurity.
Regular meetings will be held to keep you informed on all school-related issues, but if you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We value your input greatly.
We are always open to non-monetary contributions from our parents, this includes any skills, talents, or contacts you might have to benefit the children.
We also request any materials that can be used in the classrooms like scrap paper, toilet rolls, wool, material, old magazines, etc. can be handed in at the office.
Registration And Cancellations
Our open-door policy allows for registrations to take place throughout the year. The success or your registration will depend on if we have reached our classroom capacity for the specific age-group you are registering for.
There is an annual fee of R1000.00 to secure your child’s place in the school. This fee will be used for the extra activities that we offer, like make-and-bake day, etc.
We need 1-months written notice for the termination of day-care. November and December are not accepted as a notice month.
We have put the following processes in place, to ensure a hygienic environment for your child:
As part of our fun daily routine, we teach your child to take responsibility for their own hygiene like teaching them to brush their teeth, washing hands before eating, etc.
We value parental participation and have put the following in place to keep you up-to-day with your child’s progress:
Baby (6 weeks to 12 months) Daily Report:
Baby Weekly Report Booklet:
This booklet will be updated with information regarding the activities your baby participated in and any other information regarding your child (observations etc.). This booklet can also be used to provide information to the teacher. This is just one of the tools to create effective communication between parents and teachers.
Bi-Yearly (Every 6 Months) Progress Report:
We evaluate the progress of all of our children every 6 months, to ensure they are on the right track, in terms of their developmental milestones. Our in-house school kineticist also gives feedback on the progress and how they are responding to our specialized kinetics program.
If your child has an appointment with Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, etc. they will leave a report at the school for your perusal.
school & Class requirements
We start potty training from 24 months, we also then decrease the use of drinking from bottles.
