What a wonderful month we have had, these are exciting times for our centre. The meals have been a received fairly well by the children. We realise where we can make improvements and the next round of menu's will reflect the changes we are making.We want to say a big thank you to Miss Nicole for all of her efforts in the kitchen.She has been a ray of sunshine throughout the process and has taken all feedback on board and with a smile on her face. Even when a cheeky 2 year old says, "I am not going to eat that!!" and one of kindergarten children telling his father "I get a beer with my lunch at school now. Of course this is not the case but it is funny to hear the children's imaginations running wild! We had a successful Easter Bonnet parade in which all of the children looked wonderful in their Easter bonnets they had created in the weeks and days leading up to the parade.
Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia's most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
When soldiers from all over the country went to fight together at Gallipoli, a common bond was formed. Every Australian back home felt immense pride in the young soldiers who showed such amazing courage in battle.
This is what the ANZAC spirit is about. It is the heart, the very essence of our nation.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
The cooler weather is upon us. The afternoons and early mornings are getting a little chilly. Please remember to pack your child a jumper for these times. Children are still required to bring in a drink bottle, sheets, hat and spare clothes to care each day.
Do you have an idea or interest that you would like to share with us?
Our centre would not be what it is without the support from our wonderful families and staff so we would love to hear from you. Singing, dancing, gardening, book reading! It doesn't matter, your skills are required!
Please speak to Rachael if you would like to discuss helping us out.
An Up-cycled Life....
The staff at Daisy Hill Early Learning centre were lucky enough to attend a programming workshop over the weekend to discuss different ideas and ways in which to engage, interact and educate children and how to best document those experiences as they occur. It is so exciting to discover the 'new' and think and create new ways to be an even better Educator for children.
We discovered RahniLu a business specifically designed to cater for child care services that like up-cycled equipment and other creations. We have purchased a mud kitchen with some of our fundraising money for the children. We thank you for making this possible. Your support means a lot to us and our journey.
