Welcome From the Editor

Welcome to the final issue of the year! This is my final issue as editor and owner of Your Child in Casey & Cardinia. We have a lovely new editor taking over the reins in 2019. I have had so much fun creating Your Child in Casey & Cardinia and I would like to thank all our readers and local businesses that have supported the magazine. My family has officially moved to South Australia and settling in nicely.

We have heaps of content to keep you reading over the break. With Summer here it’s important to slip slop slap but don’t forget children’s eyes! On page 15 we have an article on protecting your child’s eyes from UV. We have lots of tips for surviving the Silly Season and a guide on the transition from Kindergarten to Prep. Make sure to have a look at the ‘What’s On in Casey & Cardinia’ page to see all the fun events happening this month. I hope your family has a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!
