August 7, 2018
Welcome, this week meet educator Karen Armstrong, who owns the Kids World Early Learning Centre in Werribee with her husband Kieran, and how to protect your staff from parents who bully. Plus we launch our new lead generation service Child Care Connect.
Child Care Connect
A better way to fill vacancies for Premium and Basic Subscribers works hard to support the early childhood education and care sector by offering a range of innovative tools and services, which make it easier for providers to connect with parents looking for care.

To this end, we are delighted and very proud to announce the launch of Child Care Connect, a whole new approach to filing vacancies fast for our Basic and Premium Subscribers.

We developed Child Care Connect after requests for a more immediate and responsive system for managing vacancies.

Child Care Connect bridges the gap between early childhood services and parents looking for care by leveraging the powerful database to generate connections between services with current vacancies and parents whose requirements match those vacancies.
Educator in the Spotlight
Karen Armstrong
What is your name?

My name is Karen Armstrong and I am 28 years old. My husband and I own the Kids World Early Learning Centre in Werribee and his name is Kieran Armstrong, so the children have a habit of calling me 'the other Kieran' or 'the girl Kieran' as they confuse our names.

Kids World Early Learning Centre in Werribee we have a team of 10 staff and can accept 43 children a day. We are at 90 per cent occupancy so have about 40 children in per day and about 60 families that we work with.
Protecting staff from parents who bully
Recent media reports about the principal of prestigious Sydney private school St Andrews, telling parents to "chill out" after noticing growing levels of agitation from parents toward teachers highlight the possibility of parents as bullies

Dr John Collier, who has been a school principal for 30 years, said in a letter to parents at the school that he had noticed the culture of "gracious engagement" between parents and teachers had been steadily declining and he warned he would tell staff to stop answering emails and phone calls from parents if necessary.
