Bega Valley Shire Council is seeking feedback about the way it delivers services at its childcare centres.
Parents and community members are invited to complete a short survey to provide comments on what works well at the centres and give feedback as to what could be improved.
There is a survey for the community and one targeted towards parents/carers which is designed to receive information about the satisfaction with the services provided, particularly the quality of staff, resources and educational programs.
The childcare centres are Bandara Children’s Services and Vacation Care in Bega, Eden Preschool, Eden Child Care Centre and the Sapphire Mobile Preschool at Candelo and Bemboka.
Council’s Manager of Children, Families and Ageing, Kristina Brenner, said it was essential to listen to community groups, health and family organisations, Indigenous elders, children and their families to establish the community’s needs.
“We will be speaking with lots of people who work in or use our children’s services,” she said.
“Stakeholders taking a few minutes to complete the survey will provide us valuable feedback that helps us shape the program towards the needs of the community.
“There are others who live in the community that have good ideas about what we can do better,” she said.
The surveys take five minutes and can be completed online at Council’s website or following the below links, and will close on Friday 6 November.
Paper copies for the community survey can be found at the libraries and Council office; parent/guardian surveys are at the childcare centres.
