I feel the most impressive thing about LCOOS is the staff who clearly have the energy, compassion and commitment to get to know each child, praise them for the things they do well and encourage them with the things they could use a hand with. They are aware of the dynamics in the playground and do a good job of making everyone feel included if they want to be.
Our main feedback as a family is how happy we are with the close relationship that the staff make with the children so that they feel safe, happy and protected. We also appreciate the support and encouragement given to our children to learn to handle their emotions and reactions to other children and adults in order to learn to build and maintain sensitive and responsive relationships.
Alana really enjoyed her time at the centre last night and is looking forward to starting. The staff were very friendly and have a good energy about them which seemed to rub off on the kids.
I appreciate that awareness of the need for sunscreen is taught to the children. Recently my son said to me, "Mum, I can do my OWN sunscreen, I learned at after school care"
