Print out a hard copy form for parents to fill out as they pick up/drop off (and send it back to us via email when it's filled out), or share this online form through your e-newsletters and social media!

Early Childhood Educators Day | 1 September

R U OK? Day | 9 September

We have all gone through many ups and downs lately so it's incredibly important that we connect with one another to ask R U OK?

This year's focus is Are they really OK? Ask them today. Don't wait until someone is visibly distressed - take a moment and ask them how they're really going.

To get involved, visit the R U OK? Day website for resources* to teach your children and staff how to start a conversation. 

You can also tune in to R U OK? Day's free webinar on Thursday 9th September at 12:30pm to learn when and how to ask R U OK? so you can have a conversation that could change a life.
For more info and to register, click here

*Resources are targeted at primary school children but can be adapted to suit early childhood.
The Health Promotion Team at CBCHS is funded by the Department of Health, allowing us to offer free, tailored health and wellbeing support to your early childhood service.
