Welcome to our new little friends, Xavier and Nixon! They are the newest edition to Daisy Hill ELC and also our youngest.We are so lucky to share in the journey of all of our beautiful children but there is something extra special when they are so little!
I have been lucky enough to spend the last six months with Delilah, Chase, Evie and Jack.It has been an absolute pleasure spending my days with them, watching them grown.The time spent together has built such strong and beautiful connections, not only between the children and myself but with one another as well. The time has come for the children to embark on the next stage of their journey.Toddlers!!
I will be helping the children with their transition and plan to still do some of our activities and experiences with my Lyn and the Toddler class.
Raffa, Hudson, Olive and Alisha along with our new friends Nixon and Xavier will be staying on in the Nursery classroom! We have a bunch of exciting experiences planned for the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
We have been enjoying some outdoor and sensory experiences over the past few weeks.It has been lovely and crisp mid-morning so we have been spending some time playing in the sunshine!We have joined the older classrooms on a few occasions, taking part in their activities and playing in the older yards.
If you have any ideas or questions please feel free to come and see me,
Until next time
Oh…. Hi July!
Our previous focus has been on strengthening our relationships with the children and making sure they feel connected and safe in their environment. We continue to build long lasting relationships with the children and encourage them to be well rounded, confident individuals.We are so proud of the children and the gains they have made throughout the year.
We have some new friends from the Nursery classroom that we welcome.This also means that some of our Toddler children have since moved on to our Explorer classroom. Good luck friends.
We have been doing a lot of creative art experiences in the past few weeks, take a look around our room and see what you think!
If you have any ideas for our classroom or the centre I would love to hear from you.
We have moved!
If you are a member of the Explorer family you will know that we have moved classrooms! Due to rising numbers in our senior school it made more sense to give the larger group the larger play environment.The Explorer children are very settled in the new play space and are enjoying the outdoor environment as well. We have welcomed some new members to our class and we hope they are settling. We have had a child led focus of music and movement experiences! Exercise establishes a positive self-esteem and contributes to a healthy mind and body. The children have been having running races mid morning when it is lovely and cool and also have been playing games such as freeze and What's the time Mr Wolf. The educators set a scene, creating different areas for the story "We're on a bear hunt" ....the children enjoyed the experience so much it lasted for a lot longer than expected, the educators were very tired after singing the bear hunt song for nearly the entire morning session!
We have also been focusing on trying to teach children about their own personal space and belongings, and that sharing is caring. We try to promote kindness and positive relationships with each other and the children in hopes that they too display this behaviour. It is fast becoming our class motto "Be kind and sharing is caring" .
Please come and see our friendly staff if you have any ideas for our program, We would love to hear from you!
Another awesome couple of months in the Kindy Room. We completed our Alphabet Letters and held our "Dress as Your Favourite Letter Day". It was great to see the children getting into the day and wearing some fabulous costumes! We then started some name recognition activities and from here we will move onto fine motor manipulation and writing exercises with the eventual goal of learning to write our names. With winter hitting us hard this year we are learning about hygiene, germs and how to take care of our bodies. We will be continuing actively learning about this for a few more weeks yet so children have a very good understanding of hygiene practices.
