Here at Dripstone we understand the importance of communication in maintaining and strengthening relationships. We also believe that speaking face to face is the most effective kind of communication and invite you to speak with us each and every day. We believe that the community that maintains open communication thrives. The more connected ‘home’ and ‘Dripstone’ are the more meaningful our curriculum planning and practices can be.
Aside from conversations we also provide the following opportunities for communication with our families:
Stay and Play!
We actively encourage our families to stay and play at the centre at drop-off and pick-up time, our doors are always open. Families can also call the centre anytime to speak us.
The Core Four
Here at Dripstone our educator team value the voices of children and as such we document with and for children as opposed to simply 'about' them. We understand that family life with little people gets busy and that at times it can be tricky to stay across everything. The core four is designed to assist you to remain up to date with the centres current projects, upcoming events and also to share examples of your child’s involvement in our curriculum.
'The Journey of Me'
We know that it's less about the 'destination' and more about the 'journey' and what occurs along the way. 'The Journey of Me' is a collection of memories, stories and examples of your child’s involvement and progress during their time here at Dripstone.
Digital communication - Facebook, Xplor, Mailchimp
Although face to face and written communications through the core four are the most effective way to remain up to date with your child's progress at Dripstone we do also utilise digital communication methods. When it comes to Facebook regardless of if your children attend Dripstone, are on the waiting list or you are simply interested in knowing more about what we do our Facebook page is for you. We invite you to pop over and give us a blue thumb and keep up to date with what we are doing.
