Biz – E – Kidz

Do you have any spare blankets, sleeping bags or biscuits? Biz – E - Kidz Charity Drive

To support the disadvantaged in the local community, Biz – E – Kidz children and educators are collecting sleeping bags, blankets and packets of biscuits for the St Vincent’s de Paul's soup van. Please bring any clean or new sleeping bags and blankets or biscuits in sealed packets to the Biz – E – Kidz building where you will find a box awaiting your donation. Donations can be dropped off during operating hours: 7:30 – 9:00am and 3:00 – 6:00pm.

2018 Bookings
Biz – E – Kidz requires that families make a new booking for before and aftercare every year to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to care. We will be opening our bookings for 2018 on Friday 24th November, coinciding with the second Foundation Transition Session. To streamline the booking and enrolment process and minimize paperwork for families, we will be mailing partially completed enrolment forms to families in October / November (date to be confirmed) to current families. More information to come

New families will be able to collect an application and enrolment form at the Information session on Wednesday 8th November. Bookings can be made by returning these forms to Biz – E – Kidz on or after Friday 24th November.

Some important information:
· Families will be notified of 2018 bookings in the mail early December.
· No payment is required from new families until the commencement of care in 2018
· Please ensure the Centrelink ‘Customer Reference Numbers’ and dates of birth are supplied on the form to ensure we can register you for child care benefits and rebate
· Bookings can be made to suit your requirements, you do not have to book before and aftercare for the same day or every day of the week
· Casual bookings are subject to availability
· Holiday program bookings are made separately each term

Things to do

It's almost Spring Fling time again and we're looking for some super talent to light up the Multicultural Stage on the 15th October.

If you can sing, dance, juggle, play a musical instrument, have some incredible magic tricks up your sleeve or have another super talent you're itching to showcase, sign up here and become a local star.
