We believe in developing effective partnerships with families that will ultimately result in positive outcomes for children 

Before commencing enrolment, the opportunity exists for the child and parent to visit the service on a casual basis to discuss the child’s routine with staff. Enrolment and orientation is designed for families to familiarise the child and family with the service and to develop trusting relationships as enrolment and orientation are often the first time their child has been cared for by someone other than a relative or friend. Therefore flexibility and sensitivity are key factors in ensuring that children and families have a positive enrolment and orientation experience.          


At Sparrow Early Learning we feel it is very important for families to feel they are involved with their child’s educators.  We believe in developing effective partnerships with families that will ultimately result in positive outcomes for children.


All parents are asked to familiarise themselves with our methods of communication, we feel this is very important. Communication will be through a variety of methods at each service including:


  • Notice board in entrance foyer

  • Notice boards in the individual rooms
