Open Door Policy
The Grove Academy encourages family involvement. We value the ideas, skills and knowledge that all family and community members may have, and we encourage their contributions into our service. We promote an Open Door Policy where family and community members are invited to contribute to our daily centre programs and any special events that occur at the centre.
At TGA we believe the local community is one of our most valuable resources and in turn, give back in any way we can. Our biggest fundraiser is for women’s cancers where The Grove Academy has raised over $7,500 for the Cancer Council since 2015. To continue to raise awareness for such charities, The Grove Academy endeavours to match any funds raised for these worthy causes.
Other fundraisers held here at The Grove Academy include; Afternoon Teal for Ovarian Cancer Australia, the Bandaged Bear Appeal for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and The World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation, to name a few! All parents and families are invited and encouraged to join us during these special events, it’s a great chance to socialise while giving back to the community!
The Grove Academy is proud to partner with The Ronald McDonald House Westmead to support their Learning Program.
We have chosen to support RMH as we both strongly believe in the value of education for young children. The Learning Program helps children with serious illness catch up on their missed education following lengthy hospital stays and absence from school. The program is often the first step towards normalcy for seriously ill children and their families and sends a clear message that we believe in their future.
As a part of this partnership, a portion of each enrolment fee is donated to RMH and all Grove educators wear a yellow polo every Friday.
