 Nursery News

Our Nursery classroom is an exciting place to be, especially over this past month. We are focusing on strengthening our bonds between educator and child to ensure best outcomes are met for children. We have been exploring a lot of sensory experiences and the benefits of this kind of play from birth. Early on, babies learn about their world using their senses: seeing, smelling, hearing, feeling & tasting. As they grow, children's senses are their most familiar way to explore their environment and process information.

Now that the weather has been cooling off it has also given the babies the opportunity to play in the beautiful mid-morning sunshine.  The Nursery yard has great shade so the combination of cool weather and the sun has been bliss.

 Toddler  Room

Hello all and welcome to another month from the Toddler room! We would like to welcome all our new families.

We have been having an absolute blast this last month! So many new friendships are blossoming and children are so settled and have anticipation of what is coming next. This allows children to feel safe and secure in their surroundings.

It is getting much colder, more quickly this year so we ask that you please provide warm clothing as well as a few changes of clothes just in case your child gets wet.

Important: Please remember to remove your child's drink bottle at the end of the day from the basket. We do our best with infection control but sometimes it isn't enough especially if drink bottles are left for days in the Container, without having more regular hot washing.

 Explorer News

We would like to start off by talking about what we have done over the past month. As you may have seen from our room, we have been Focusing on our cultures and what makes us special. It has been so wonderful learning about all of the wonderful culturally diverse backgrounds we have in our centre.

The children have also really enjoyed learning about all the colours as each day we have observed the children talking to their friends about what colour clothes they are wearing.

Transitioning Children: If you have children transitioning into our room in the near future, please don't hesitate to talk to us about any questions or concerns you may have. We want you to be apart of our little community.

Miss Yuki is in JAPAN for a month-long holiday, visiting her friends and family.  Miss Marivic and Harleen will be replacing her whilst she is away. Have fun Yuki!! 

Our classroom is buzzing with exciting activities and experiences for the children. Please feel free to stop by for a visit! 

 Early Education

We have been engaging in a lot of outdoor experiences now that the weather is lovely and fresh. There has been a lot of community play, all of the children have been exploring different play spaces and have been settling in their own areas of interest. Exploring in the sandpit and garden area and also using our gross motor skills to climb up the frames and play chasing games has been a hot favourite for the children of late.

We want to ensure that each experience is an extension of your child's home life which is why your family input is important, is so important to our evolving program.

Through our programs, children will be able to learn through three main concepts: Being, Becoming and Belonging.

If you have any free time and would like to be a part of our class we would love to hear from you!
