Nurture : 2010
18 nurture SOUTH Coast kids could teach many Australians a thing or two about saving! Money Magazine's Building Society of the Year, IMB, has more than 2500 IMB Zoo Account holders in the region saving a combined $1.3 million between them. Thanks to the IMB Zoo Account, designed to assist children under the age of 12 with financial savings habits by rewarding them with bonus interest for regular deposits, kids are learning the art of a penny saved is a penny earned early on in life. The Zoo Account is a great tool for par- ents to use to show kids how to establish regular savings habits, ensuring saving money is fun and rewarding. Not only will kids earn bonus interest, they can also be rewarded by entering great competitions with a Reward Loyalty Card. The Loyalty Card works by giving kids a bonus stamp for every deposit of $10 or more, and a bonus sticker for every $30 deposited. Once the Reward Loyalty Card is full, kids will enter the draw to win $100 cash to boost their Zoo savings. The Zoo Account has a minimum opening balance of $1, and rewards young savers with a bonus interest of 3% p.a when $10 or more is deposited each month and no withdrawals are made in the same month. Furthermore, parents needn't worry abut hidden fees -- Zoo offers no transaction fees or monthly accounting fees and even rewards every account holder with a specially-designed Zoo Money Box! And for older "kids" -- the IMB Kick Start account, launched earlier this year, is an excellent way for teenagers to learn how to manage their pocket money, the wages from their first job and save for their first holiday or car. Parents can apply now and help set their kids up for life by visiting their near- est IMB Branch or by calling IMB Direct on 133 462. under 12s reap the rewards of saving EMERGENCY CONTACTS Police / Fire / Ambulance 000 Emergency calls from mobile phones in non-service areas 112 Poisons Information 13 11 26 Health Direct Australia 1800 022 222 DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY SERVICES Child Protection 132 111 Domestic Violence Helpline 1800 656 463 Eurobodalla Sexual Assault Service 4474 1561 24 hour line 02 6492 4416 COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTRES, CHILDHOOD IMMUNISATION CLINICS For new referrals/intake phone number 1300 139 887 Community Health Moruya 4474 1561 Community Health Batemans Bay 4475 1620 PARENT HELP LINES Tresillian 24hr Help Line 1800 637 357 Parent Line 7-day Breast feeding Help Line 1800 686 2 686 Karitane 24hr Help Line 1800 677 961 Family Planning Health Line 1300 658 886 Early Childhood Intervention Info Line 1300 656 865 Parenting courses 4472 5822 Mum 2 Mum 4405 8002 FAMILY SERVICES St Bernard's Playgroup, Community and Family Centre, Melaleuca Cres, Batemans Bay.
