A fun bear picnic to celebrate National Family Day Care Week May 2nd

Eurobodalla families are invited to celebrate National Family Day Care Week with a Teddy Bears Picnic at Tomakin. Council’s Children’s Services will mark the occasion with a Teddy Bears Picnic on Tuesday, 2 May at Tomakin’s Jack Buckley Park, from 10am to noon.

In its fifth year, National Family Day Care Week recognises and promotes the important role family day care educators and services play in the development and wellbeing of more than 212,820 children Australia-wide.

The picnic will feature plenty of fun activities for children including a bear hunt, stories and music.

All families with children under six are welcome to attend with their teddy bears and are encouraged to bring picnic mats, hats and a healthy morning tea.

The picnic will also celebrate the outcome of a recent National Quality Standards in Education and Care assessment.

Council’s Coordinator Children and Family Services Louise Hatton said Council’s Family Day Care service met the national quality standards in five areas and exceeded them in two.

“The outcome recognises the uniqueness of individual educators and the collaboration within our service to provide tailored education and care to the needs of local families,” she said.

Family Day Care Week is being held Monday, 1 May to Sunday, 7 May 2017.
