Nursery News  

This month we have been focusing on Healthy Eating. We started the month by introducing and discussing various fruits that we eat at the centre and at home. 

We have been looking at lots of clips online of fresh produce with the help of youtube's farm to truck stories.   We have also made a fruit collage and a vegetable collage.  

We have also been heavily focused on Australia seasons and what they bring.  We have been doing some beautiful collages depicting our seasons using great big pieces of paper, donated from our wonderful families. 

Outdoor play has been beautiful! The weather is getting cooler, which we have to rug up for obviously but it makes for lovely sunny mornings and afternoons. 

 Toddler and Junior Room

Hello all and welcome to another month from the Toddler room!  We would like to welcome all our new families.

We have been having an absolute blast this last month!  So many new friendships are blossoming and children are so settled and have anticipation of what is coming next.  This allows children to feel safe and secure in their surroundings. 

It is getting much colder, more quickly this year so we ask that you please provide warm clothing as well as a few changes of clothes just in case your child gets wet.  

Important: Please remember to remove your child's drink bottle at the end of the day  from the basket. We do our best with infection control but sometimes it isn't enough especially if drink bottles are left for days in the Container, without having more regular hot washing. 

Transitioning Children: If you have children transitioning into our room in the near future, please don't hesitate to talk to us about any questions or concerns you may have. We want you to be apart of our little community.
