TLC’s AGM meeting will be taking place on October 25, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. It is open to the public, so come and join us for our discussion and some tasty snacks.
Mom’s Pantry Fundraiser:
We are currently running a Mom’s Pantry fundraiser at TLC. For sale are pre-made cookie and muffin mixes. This fundraiser will run from October 2 until October 16, 2017. Forms are available at TLC. For more information, see the whiteboard at the centre or read the details here: TLC Mom’s Pantry Cookie and Muffin Fundraiser 2017. If you have any questions, speak with Kim at TLC. Thanks so much for your support of our current fundraiser!
Our new Fastoche system is in place, and ready for not only staff to use, but parents as well. It is easy to use and gives the parents and staff an easy way to communicate all information regarding the children in the daycare. All parents should have received access to the Fastoche system to update their children’s info regarding pick-up permissions, allergies, doctor’s phone numbers, etc. If you have not received this information on how to update your child’s info, please tell Kim, so this can be completed as soon as possible.
For parental use of Fastoche to inform the daycare of a sick day, ask about a balance owed, or for info on meals or daycare closings, follow these steps:
- Add the daycare text number into your contact list on your phone for easy access. The number is 204-500-0325.
- Use basic commands with three pieces of info, including Who, What, and When. For example, who would refer to the child’s name, when would be the day in question, and what could include sick, absent, doctor, etc. The following are general texts that could be used:
Jimmy is sick today
Lilly will be staying home Friday
How much do I owe for Samuel?
Bobby and Sue won’t be there Monday
Is the Daycare open Thursday
What is for Lunch on Tuesday?
- Be sure to keep the text short and to the point. If it is not accepted, try to word it a bit differently following the guidelines above and resend.
- Also, it is possible to send a text regarding two children at once, provided the message is the same. For example, you can say “Jim and Bobby are staying home Tuesday”, but not “Jim is staying home Tuesday, but Bobby will be there”. In the second case, you will need to send two messages.
The staff has been using the system to send out the daily reports for each child to those with e-mail addresses logged into the Fastoche system. If you are not receiving them, please contact Kim to add it in, so you can receive the reports.
If you have any questions regarding the Fastoche system, please contact Kim at TLC either in person at the daycare, or by phone at 204-745-1948.
On November 13, 2015, the TLC Board of Directors, along with some of the parents of children who attend TLC, hosted a dinner for the staff of the daycare to show our appreciation for the hard work they do. The evening included a sit-down dinner, followed by a few games. Each staff member received a small thank-you gift at the end.
