The Preschool Week - 26 - 30.10.2009

The Preschoolers have been very busy this week practising their literacy skills.  You are able to see some of their work on the board in their room. 
Chloe was our Artist Of The Week with her wonderful creation.  She drew some wonderful red and blue butterlies and glued them very carefully on to an envelope.
We have also been talking about the Virtue Of The Week - Courage.  The Transition Group have done some wonderful drawings and these are on display on the wall near reception.  See the picture below for some of their work.

Life in the Nursery

Life is ticking along in the Nursery.  The children are still showing a great interest in testing themselves physically so we are spending a bit of time in the Toddler playground at the moment.  Books, books and more books is the other big interest at the moment.  The children are loving their reading and we are really noticing a change in their vocabulary as a result.  We may even have to plan another trip to the book shop. 
Remember to check out the planning board and the displays in the room to see photos and stories of our latest adventures.

Farewell to Alexander on his last day in the Toddler Room (9th October). We hope you have had fun and we are all going to miss you lots. All the best for the future for you and your family.
It has been a fun and busy week in the Toddler Room, despite the weather for the week. The children have been doing lots of various activities such as painting, climbing, jumping, reading, dancing, building and dramatic play. We have found time to go outside for runs and some fresh air and we all enjoyed the weather while it lasted. The Toddlers have had a great week and we are looking forward to the next week for some more fun and excitement.

Preschool news

We welcome two new friends to Preschool this week.  Sacha is coming up from Toddlers and Paige (teacher who has recently been covering Marama as our centre cook) will be replacing Shaina.

We are having fun preparing for our October 16 Trip to the Sky Tower.  There is much excitement in the air as we draw pictures, do facepaints and chat about the Auckland icon we can see from our window.

Sky Tower Trip - Preschool

The Preschoolers (only those booked in on a Friday) will be going on a trip to the Sky Tower on Friday, the 16th of October.  The children take a great interest in the Sky Tower, as it can be seen clearly from the Preschool Room.  They are often seen drawing pictures or constructing the Sky Tower.  The cost of the trip is $ 6.50, which will be deducted from your special account.  If you do not belong to this account you will need to pay cash prior to the day.  All children need to be at the centre by 8.45 at the lastest.  We will  be leaving at 9.20 a.m. and returning at approximately midday.
