Information for our families
Federation Children's Centre families are encouraged to be involved in the centre. Through family involvement children develop a sense of continuity and community between home and the centre.
Our families information book has been compiled to inform the conditions under which Federation Children’s Centres operate. It is important that you read and keep it for future reference. The Federation Children’s Centre Information Book is updated as necessary. If you have any questions about the information, please discuss these with the Federation Children’s Centre Coordinator/Deputy Coordinator.
