Preschool Lunchbox day!

There was great excitement in Preschool on Monday...... it was lunchbox day!

Each child brought in their own exciting packed lunch full of healthy goodies. Lunchtime has never been so highly anticipated!

The children loved showing off their food from home. It also fit in well with out transition to school programme, as the children will take lunchboxes everyday to primary school.

A big thank you to the parents for putting together the yummy lunches, and for complying with out healthy food and nut/egg/sesame free policies.

Dancing with Damayanthi in Toddlers

The Toddlers and Damayanthi had fun at mat time today dancing along to the music and following all the actions of the song. Ava especially enjoyed this mat time as can be seen by all her moves on the video.

Farewells, Mystery Visitors, Mother's Day and Artists in Nursery

Another busy week has passed in the Nursery.
We enjoyed some last visits from Mr Bayfield (the cat) before he moved away. The inside/outside flow is really starting to take effect and one or two children are often found inside enjoying time and space to do their own thing, while the rest of the children are outside. The new tables and chairs are proving both a hit and at times a challenge as the children get used to having the freedom to hop on and off when they choose.
Mother's Day provided us with a stream of visitors, especially in the Pukeko Room, lets hope that the fathers show the same dedication when it is their turn.
See the photos below of our mystery visitors, artists and visiting mums.

Upcoming Events at Bayfield

Friday, 14th May 2010

The Toddler Room are having a Teddy Bears Picnic on Friday. Please ensure your child brings a named Teddy Bear, so they can join in the fun with all their other peers.
This is only for the children who attend Bayfield on Friday

Monday, 17th May 2010
The Preschool Room are having a "Lunchbox Day" as part of the children's transition to primary school. Could each child please bring a healthy packed lunch in a lunchbox or plastic container. We would like to exclude chips, biscuits and lollies as we are focusing on a healthy lunch.
No foods are to contain nuts, eggs or sesame - for example, peanut butter or nuttella as we do have some children in the preschool room with allergies.
This is for the children who attend Bayfield on Monday only.
We are all looking forward to these two events.

Trevor's Visit to Preschool

Trevor Thwaites from the University of Auckland came to visit us a few weeks ago and brought in his drum to kit to share. He also had a big bag of percussion instruments. Trev played some impressive rhythms for us and we danced along to the beat. There was some pretty funky dancing going on! We all got to have a turn on the tambourine, cymbol, snare drum, conga drum, maracas and clavae. We made a huge racket and had heaps of fun in the process.
See the video below.

The Week in Preschool

Welcome to our new friends in Preschool - Liam, Ben, Alex and their families. 
We had a great Mother's Day and would like to thank all the mothers who came and spent the morning with their child and also their friends.  Check out the smilebox album below with all the cheerful photos that were taken on the day.  It was great to see all the mothers involved with the activities that their children enjoy at Bayfield and also sharing their Profile books.  The children loved it and had a great time.
