Toddler & Preschool BBQ Night

Pukeko & Tuatara News

It has been another fun filled week in the Nursery as the children (and teachers) continue to get used to their rooms. 
All things have been quiet in the Pukeko Room, there are only minor changes being made and everyone has settled in well.  Jonty likes to spend time on top of the loft surveying the older children below and calling out to them as they play.  William, Ruby and Harry are spending a lot of time going not only up the stairs and down the slide but also chasing each other around in the crawl space underneath the loft.  Charli has had a great first week with us and Jules, Charlie, Lilly and Krisarn are showing off newfound abilities in regards to moving.  Imogene is right in the midst of everything that is going on and can often be found joining Jonty in his castle at the top of the loft.
In the Tuatara Room we are still moving around as the children use the spaces and we realise what works and what doesn't.  We have managed to reset up a new art area which has again altered the arrangement of the room.  The children are getting used to being able to choose their play space more freely and are drifting from outside, inside and back again as they get involved in different activities.  We are waiting on some different tables and chairs, that will give the children more independence as they will be able to get on and off their chairs themselves, and hopefully any changes after this will be minor.
We will be continuing to decorate the new environment, keep your eyes peeled for some fantastic mosaics that the staff have completed that should be appearing around the rooms over the next few weeks.
Have a fabulous weekend and we will see you next week.

Toddlers Week

Nursery Week

It has been a week of fantastic changes in the Nursery.  The Pukeko children have settled into their cozy new area so well, they now have undisturbed play and are so much more relaxed in their purpose built space.  There are increased opportunities for physical exploration which the older Pukeko children are enjoying.  Vanessa is now spending more time in the Pukeko room as there are more young babies arriving.  Very exciting!
The Tuatara children are gradually discovering that they have so much more room to play in.  There will continue to be changes as we work with the children to optimize the best use of the space that we now have.  The most important aspect of all the changes for the Tuatara children is that they will  now have uninterrupted play with the ability to move freely as they choose.
We wished William a very happy second birthday on Thursday and know that he will have a splendid time in Toddlers.  We certainly will miss you, William!  
A warm welcome goes out to Sam, who has begun settling in the Tuatara room.  We look forward to you joining with us.  Pukeko room welcomed Lilly to their room.  We are sure you will have a fantastic time with us.
