On Departure:

When collecting children, please ensure:

You sign your child out at the kiosk everyday

You review the comments that describe your child’s day

Please double check your child has not left anything behind (eg. water bottle)

You check your family pigeon hole for any important notices

Sign-in/out using Storypark

All parents/families must sign their child in each morning and sign them out each afternoon. This is a legal requirement and it is a part of our legal obligations in regards to licensing and also fire safety. At Upper Mount Gravatt we use Storypark to manage attendance and to check off the children in a fire evacuation, and if it is incomplete, we are not able to legally account for all members of the class.
