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.
We adhere to the school’s Behaviour Management Policy. 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, and 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.
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS.
Every effort will be made to include children with special needs in Matangi School Tui House Programmes. All venues and programmes are selected to enable inclusion of children and families with special needs such as learning difficulties, disabilities and developmental delays.
The programme supervisor will discuss fully with parents the child’s requirements: medication, diet and supervision requirements, which will be recorded with the child’s enrolment form.
The programme supervisor will assess how the child’s needs may be catered for and discuss this approach with parents and staff. With parental consent the programme supervisor may also contact schools and other agencies who have contact with the child for more information and advice.
The safety of the child and other children in the programme will be a major consideration. Children cannot be included in the programme if their behaviour or the level of supervision required, compromises programme supervision and the safety of the other children. The programme supervisor may offer enrolment for an initial trial period.
The programme supervisor will ensure that all staff are fully aware of the child’s requirements and that they feel confident to provide the necessary care. Each case will be considered individually and every effort will be made to include the child within the limits of the programme’s resources.
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 call 111 and contact you. In a civil emergency, the staff will remain at the centre until all children are collected.
The programme has a detailed child protection policy, which includes the reporting of any suspected child abuse to Oranga Tamariki.
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.
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 24 hours 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.
