POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.
Please see one of the Supervisors if you wish to view our policies and procedures folder. It contains detailed information on health and safety, making complaints, employment practices, etc.

BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT.
We adhere to the school’s Behaviour Management Policy (Nag 5). We use behaviour management techniques that encourage positive self-esteem development. It is our goal to ensure that children and families experience an environment where they are safe, secure, respected and their dignity is protected. This is done through the use of positive reinforcement and a stimulating and varied programme to ensure against boredom. Every effort will be made to settle your child into the programme. However, if your child’s behaviour is consistently harmful to the other children, you will be asked to remove your child from the centre.

Matangi Tuihouse uses a traffic light system surrounding our school values regarding behaviour

 

EMERGENCIES.
Our Supervisor and other staff members are holders of First Aid Certificates and are trained to deal with emergencies. In the case of a serious accident involving your child the staff will RING 111 AND contact you. In a civil emergency the staff will remain at the centre until all children are collected.

CHILD SAFETY.
The programme has a detailed child protection policy, which includes the reporting of any suspected child abuse to Oranga Tamariki.

COMPLAINTS.
The programme has a complaints procedure. If you have any problems please approach the Supervisors, Administration Office in school or our school Principal. They will be happy to assist you with your concerns.

SICK CHILDREN.
Please do not send along sick children, as we do not have the facilities to care for them. If a child becomes ill during the centre hours, parents will be called and asked to collect them. If your child has had vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24hours please do not send them. 

If you have any queries or concerns the Supervisor, Josie Kingham is available Mon-Fri after 2.30pm on 027 810 6080.
