Our preschool week

This week was a lovely week to spend out in the springtime sunshine. The children really enjoyed being outside, feeling the warmth of the sun on them.
Next week, we have a busy week...Monday, we have our kids at play photographer coming in to spend some time with the children. Thursday, we have our special fathers day morning. This is where the fathers are able to come in and see what their child does throughout the day at preschool. They will be able to catch up with all the other dads, too. On Friday, we have our trip to the Mt Albert YMCA. This will be a trip filled with lots of energy. Please remember to dress the children in suitable clothing and to also wear suitable shoes. Jandals will be tricky for the children to wear and try to participate in.
Just another reminder, if your child has a fever and is not well, the best place for them to be is at home.
The letter of the week for next week is "Dd".
Have a fantastic weekend, and we will see you all next week ready for a fun filled one!

A new teacher in Preschool

As you all know Cindy is due to have a baby next month.  She was hoping to continue work for another couple of weeks but has had to give up work sooner as her health has not been good.  We have a new teacher, Rebecca Reynolds, who will be taking her place.  Rebecca has recently moved from South Carolina, U.S.A. and is hoping to make her home in New Zealand.  She is a very experienced teacher and she is qualified and registered with the New Zealand Teachers Council.  Rebecca has been relieving for the past few weeks and will take over Cindy's maternity position permanently as from Monday, 29th of August 2011.  If you have not done so already, please introduce yourself to Rebecca.
Welcome on board Rebecca!

Fun, fun and more fun...........

This has been a busy, busy week for all!
The 4 year olds were thrilled with the rainbow caterpillars they made and were all quite exhausted running after Earl and his kites.
Then we went fishing with rods and magnets and tried desperately to snag a shark or two; some were lucky.
The bikes and scooter have been the main attraction all week. The children have learned to manouvre them in tight circles, and also to wait very, very patiently for their turn. Well done everyone!
Amongst all the fun and joy, also a little sadness. Goodbye to Lily and Sacha as they move on to their next learning adventure.
Enjoy the weekend, everyone.
Go the Springboks!!

Kids@Play Photography

On the week of the 29th August we have Donna from Kids@Play Photography coming to photograph the children.  Donna has been coming to the centre for approximately 8 years now and she is very professional in what she does.  She takes very natural photos of the children at play throughout the day.  Once she has edited them, they will be available for you to purchase.  If you DO NOT WANT YOUR CHILD PHOTOGRAPHED BY DONNA, please let us know prior to her coming.  More notices will be placed around the centre soon.  If you have any queries at all about this, please see Mona or Shona at reception.

Preschool Week!

This week has been all about enjoying the sunny weather when we have had the chance. We have had a great week, with kites, rainbows, movement and volcano’s, each child has been bringing their unique individuality to our projects which have allowed them to change and develop. Our little artists have been producing some amazing pieces of work to be taken home and treasured. These are in each child’s folder, and at the moment some of these are becoming very full. Therefore please remember to take these amazing paintings and drawings home.
On another note the children have been enjoying the family corner, and showed a huge interest in developing it. Therefore, we have added a new bed, ironing board (the iron is on its way!) and soon we will be putting in a table and chairs. Please come and have a look at the exciting dramatic play that seems to be developing both inside the sand pit and family corner.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and I know next week will be just as eventful.
