Welcome, this week a new nutrition tool to support early childhood services to deliver healthier meal choices and our first Educator in the Spotlight for 2018, Susan de Kok from Willow Early Learning Centre in Mudgeeraba, Queensland. Plus we'd love to know your thoughts on casual bookings at child care services, so be sure to take our poll.
Casual Care Mini Poll
Casual bookings at child care services can be a useful safety net for parents in the case of unexpected commitments or when their usual arrangements fall through.

We are fielding a growing number of enquiries from parents about casual bookings and are curious to know your thoughts on the topic, and whether you'd be open to using an app to manage casual bookings in your service.

As an added incentive, we are offering one provider a free 3-month upgrade to our Enterprise service, or an extension for providers who already subscribe, simply for answering the three quick questions below.
New tool to tackle childhood obesity
A new nutrition tool for early childhood education and care providers to curb the obesity epidemic among young children has been developed by researchers at the University of Newcastle and backed by the Australian government.

It is hoped the free menu planning tool, which will be freely available to early childhood services from March, will improve current statistics that show one in four children and almost two in three adults within Australia are considered overweight or obese.
