Some changes coming up in Toddler and Preschool staff

Some changes coming up in preschool and toddler staff

Dear Parents

As many of you know Cindy is pregnant. When she goes on maternity leave in September, Molly and Oriana have agreed to swap roles for this time. Molly will be in the Preschool sharing the Head Teacher role with Yvette and Oriana will go into the Toddler room as their Head Teacher. We envisage this will start in the last week of August to enable them both to get used to their roles.

We will be looking at a replacement teacher for Cindy for her maternity leave.

Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind regards

Shona Hewitt

Centre Manager

Preschool Fun

This week has flown by and has been filled with exploring the wonderful world of fairy tales. We also have been taking an interest in animals and the zoo so we are waiting to see how far this interest will take us?
A lot of talk and excitement has been centered on our up-and-coming dress up and lunch box day next Friday! This should be lots of fun and we are all looking forward to meeting all the fairy tale characters that will turn up to greet us. This week we have welcomed two new friends Will and Gus to the preschool room, we look forward to getting to know them better.  
On another note, winter is well and truly here, could you please remember to send the winter essentials such as hats and jackets as the play outside is still an important part of the children’s day.

Preschool days full

Dear Preschool parents

If there are any parents in Preschool who have a Thursday booked but would not mind doing a permanent swap for a Wednesday or Friday would you please let Mona or Shona know?  We have a couple of parents desperate for a Thursday space and we are unable to help them at the moment.  Please note this is only in the Preschool room.

Dress up and Lunch box Day in Preschool - Friday, 1st July

The children have shown such a huge interest in fairy tales. All the children are excited to see what types of clothes that princes and princesses wear, as well as kings and queens. Castles have also played a huge part in their learning experiences. The children would like to have a dress up day to showcase their prince or princess style!
Keeping up with the children's interests, we are also wanting to have a lunch box day. Please remember to have a healthy packed lunch in a named lunch box. It is important to remember that anything containing nuts is not allowed. This includes Peanut Butter and Nutella.

Kana, Our visiting Japanese Student

Today, Kana our visiting student from Japan did an awesome performance with the four year olds. During this week, she has introduced Japanese music instruments that makes sound called Naruko and bamboo sticks ( Tala No Bachi) to do the amazing dance. All the children were very enthusiastic and participated thoroughly. She also read a Japanese story book and surprisingly the children enjoyed every word of it. She also made Origami medals for all the children and we really miss her heaps!

All the very best Kana!

Any spare car seats??

We were wondering if anyone would have a spare car seat or booster seat in good condition that they would like to donate to the centre.  If you are able to help in anyway, please talk to Molly (Head Teacher in the Toddlers) or Shona.
