|Dear Service Director/Owner/Manager
Want to build strong, positive relationships with your families and support their parenting?
Having strong relationships with our families is crucial to the quality of a childcare service and to its success.
Supporting parents in their parenting is an essential part of that relationship.
The majority of parents are concerned about the level of confidence in their parenting and the community pressure to get parenting right.' Australian Childhood Foundation.
Parents want information that is up to date, dependable, credible and easy to read
Early Childhood Australia's Everyday Learning Series was developed by early childhood experts specifically to meet these needs. Each year the four books in the series cover topics of real interest to parents such as: brothers and sisters, making friends, maths, imagination and talking.
Our special offer for your children's service:
Early Childhood Australia is offering subscriptions to the Everyday Learning Series for 29c per week per family. This is 60% off the current list price.
This offer is only available for bulk subscriptions (50 minimum).
Take advantage of this offer now – fill out the order form.

There are two ways to take advantage of this offer and it won't cost your service anything:*

Several services have indicated they will pay for a subscription for each family out of their existing allocation for resources. 50 subscriptions will cost only $750.
Family Day Care Coordinator Units:
There are a number of ways for FDC Coordination Units to recoup the subscription costs:
- an increase of $14.99 in the annual enrolment fee paid by parents or
- an increase in the administrative levy of 29c per family per week would cover the cost of the subscription.
Make the Everyday Learning Series a built-in benefit of using your service.
Make receiving the copies of the Everyday Learning Series a service benefit in the same way as you do nappies, resources, meals etc. Each family will get the books that are published while they are in the service. The parent pays in their fees but the service distributes the books.
If you have a 39 place service with 70 families, the total cost will be $1050 (or $263 per quarter). By slightly increasing your fees the full cost will be covered by parents. Payments can be made quarterly or annually in advance.
For just 29c per week (or $14.99 per year) per family:
- generate goodwill and positive word of mouth within the community for your service

Kim, Cooloongatta, Queensland
'I think this is a wonderful initiative and I am taking out subscriptions for all of the families using the services managed by Lady Gowrie in Tasmania. I think it is enormously supportive of parents and will be a resource for them for a long time.'
Ros Cornish, Lady Gowrie, Tasmania
'I would like to say thank you for such a wonderful series! I have found the Everyday Learning Series to be an invaluable resource for using with my preschool families. The community that I live in has a strong home language and most of my preschool children are learning to speak English as a second or third language.'
