June 2020 Newsletter - Kidz Magic Capestone


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to our latest June newsletter.

A very big welcome back to many of our families.  It's been so lovely to see you all returning.  I'd also like to extend a welcome to our newest Kidz Magic families who have recently joined us or are soon to do so over the coming weeks.  Finally we are starting to see the light at the end of the long tunnel and as things continue to return as they once were it's beginning to feel more and more like home once again.

It's getting cold

As the weather gets colder please remember to layer your children in warm clothes, during the day the rooms are heated and they take off their jumpers. Please remember to also bring extra clothes in your child's bag each day to support the different seasonal changes.

Signing In and Out

An important reminder to please sign your child/children in/out each and every day that they attend.  If you have forgotten to sign your child/children in and out each day please remember when you next sign in you will be asked to confirm the days that they were not signed in. Our rolls are marked by 10am each day.  If you going to be arriving past 9:30am it would be greatly appreciated if you could please call ahead and let us know. Some families have also not been completing this sign in/out each day.  If you can please make this your priority on arrival and departure each day it would be greatly appreciated.

Sickness

The season of sickness is upon us and we are continuing to stick to the requirements around asking unwell children to remain at home and seek Dr's support to confirm they are okay to return to care if symptoms continue or develop further.  Thank you to the families that have continued to kept their sick children at home, now more than ever we need to keep doing this as winter arrives and we see an increase of colds and sickness.

Child Care Subsidy

As mentioned during our latest communication around the return of fees for families in childcare, payments for child care is resuming next month. The first week chargeable is the week beginning 6th July, I have sent out statements a few weeks back to show if there were any credits remaining on the accounts. I hope this has helped you to be prepared and know when to expect your first payment to be debited. If there is a credit there higher than the usual weekly fee your payments won't start until this credit runs out. Statements will be emailed weekly from the week beginning 13th July as usual, so please as always, check your statement each week and let us know if you have any questions along the way.

GLUTEN FREE - CHOCOLATE CHIPS COOKIES

Ingredients

Instructions
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.
  • Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350F. Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the center is set.
  • Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes :

1. A few tricks make these gluten-free cookies perfect – soft, chewy, golden and irresistible! Be sure to use a gluten-free all-purpose flour that contains xanthan gum or these cookies will spread.

2. DAIRY-FREE: To make these dairy-free use earth balance buttery sticks and reduce the amount of almond milk to 1 teaspoon.

3. NUT-FREE: Use 1/4 cup more gluten-free flour in place of the almond flour.

Hello from Nursery 2

This month saw all of our friends finally back together and falling back into a routine.We have enjoyed using our creative minds to produce lots of paintings and had fun using different tools to paint with.Alfoil and our coloured balls were used along with balloons.Recently we stuck cellophane onto contact paper and displayed it on our front door where it captures the sunlight.Our fine motor skills have been improving as we use textas to draw with and learn how to manoeuvre the pens.

Our focus has been to sit on our chairs at the table during meals and wait for everyone to finish before we move.Everyone is becoming better at this task and enjoying their mealtimes.Using our cutlery has been a great milestone with everyone including our youngest children trying to use their spoons to scoop up their food.

This month we have enjoyed group songs and stories.During these experiences we have also learnt to sit on our bottoms and listen to the songs and learn the actions.We have been practising our kicking and throwing with the balls and shown interest in our number and shape puzzles.

Over the next few weeks, we will be transitioning some of our children through to the Toddler room.We will be working closely with Ms Tracy from the Toddler room and giving at least one child each day the chance to have a play date and sleep in her room.If at any time your child doesn't feel comfortable, we will bring them back to our room and try again another day.If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to ask myself or Sandra.This week we welcomed Aza from Nursery 1 to our room and while our children are having play dates in Toddlers, we will be having some of our Nursery 1 friends coming over for a play, getting them ready for our room.

Just a reminder we have a Parent Communication Book on our bench which you are welcome to write in at any time as sometimes myself and Sandra may be on a later shift when you arrive.You can also use Educa to contact us at any time.

Until next month, keep safe.

Miss Liz, Miss Sandra and Miss Prema

Wow what a month June has been. It has been so lovely to have all our children back and really settling back into a new normal.

We have sadly said goodbye to Archer and Emerson as they moved to Senior Toddler. Across June and July a lot of our friends like Manavai, Emily, Arlo, Jonathan and Thomas are going to be having play dates in Senior Toddler ready to move up there at the end of July. We are also having quite a few Nursery 2 children come up to us for play dates, like Hudson, Ari, Clare, Tami, Amal and Ziggy. Its going to be exciting welcoming all the new children into our room. We are also going to have a couple of new children starting in July.

Animals have been a huge point of interest this month, with our animal show, then Miss Tracy bringing in her snake for a visit, then Thomas bringing in his chickens to visit. I was so proud of all the children, they were so gentle with all the animals. Having animals around children can be such an amazing learning experience for children, when they recognise that they aren't just pictures in a book, they exist in real life as well. It also teaches them compassion and respect for animals which is vital.

We have still been concentrating a lot on recognising our own names and those of our peers. A lot of us can verbally name all our friends, whether others haven't quite got to verbalising names but they definitely recognise their friends. Miss Tracy is very close to finishing our photo boards at home so will have them in our room very soon.
We have been practising our Acknowledgement to Country in our morning group times and the children now know this song really well and enjoy doing it. It also helps when they move to the next room and they do it as a big group every morning.

A few notes staffing wise, Miss Tracy has only been doing 3.5days recently, but from the 20th July she will be back 5 days a week. Miss Raman is now our main lunch float staff member as well. Once our new roster is finalised by 29th July I will have our new times displayed in our room.
Thanks

 Dear Families

Welcome to our June Newsletter

We have been slowly getting back normal and we are so happy to see all of our friends returning to care. We missed you all so much.

We have been so busy working on different things in our room and welcoming everyone back. With some children returning after a long break we have focused on lot on routines and building confidence.As reflected in learning outcome 1 of the Early years learning framework, we will be focusing on the following for the month of July

  • 1.1Children feel safe, secure, and supported.

This is evident when children:

  • build secure attachments with one and then more familiar educators.
  • use effective routines to help make predicted transitions smoothly.
  • sense and respond to a feeling of belonging.
  • communicate their needs for comfort and assistance.
  • establish and maintain respectful, trusting relationships with other children and educators.
  • openly express their feelings and ideas in their interactions with others.
  • respond to ideas and suggestions from others.
  • initiate interactions and conversations with trusted educators.
  • confidently explore and engage with social and physical environments through relationships and play.
  • initiate and join in the play.
  • explore aspects of identity through role play.

Creating connections between educators, the families and the individual children is very important and greatly assist the transition into care and into a new room.

Soon we will welcome two more Toddlers in our room, Emily and Manavai will join us and they will be having some plays in our room up until the time they join us permanently.

July will also see the beginning of our Yoga program with Miss Charmaine. This is so exciting and each child will have their own yoga mat to lay on. Yoga has so many benefits for children with both emotional and physical advantages. This will take place on a Wednesday morning from 9:45-10:15am. I will look at starting more sessions down the track, if your child does not attend on a Wednesday please feel free to come in and join in with the session.

I have attached some great links below which talk about the benefits of yoga in children

Wunya families,

Can you believe it, it's already July.

Things are now starting to become normal again within the centre and in return we now have all our little friends back.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome all our new friends to the ST2 family.

We are very excited that you are with us and we are looking forward to being apart of your child's beautiful world.

If you haven't received your welcome pack can you please just ask myself or another educator within the ST2 to supply it to you.

It's been wonderful to witness friendships forming, milestones being met and extending upon our little friends interests.

This month within the room popular activities have included cars and trucks, wooden building blocks, the sensory table with a range of sensory items, plastic animals, logs and leaves, rocks, puzzles, kinetic sand, playdoh, painting, drawing and exploring multiculturalism with cooking dishes from all over our beautiful world.

During group time we are currently revising our shapes, alphabet, phonics, body part recognition, colours and counting 1 to 20.

Miss Mel has also continued to focus on good hygiene and has continued teaching our little friends the song 'Wash your hands' by the wiggles.

Not only is it teaching children how to wash their hands but also continues revision with counting to 15 whilst washing them.

We have great group discussions about coughing into our elbow, blowing our noses and washing our hands after we disguard the dirty tissue and singing a whole wash our hands song whilst washing our hands with soap. We stop washing once the song is finished.

Can I also please remind parents that as it's getting cold can we please endure that every child has a jumper, spare pants and shoes with them daily.

Can I also ask if anyone has any old kitchen pots and pans, black milk crates (we need 6), left over wool, craft items etc we would absolutely appreciate any donations.

Have an amazing month.

- Miss Mel, Miss Irena, Miss Olivia and Miss Raman

Wunya and hello families!

This month has seen us come back to our room, children coming back to the service and now we are back to our pre COVID-19 numbers. So very thankful to have everyone back and we're loving how the children have settled so quickly back to our rhythm. 

For the month of June we have focused on interpersonal relationships and social ties by extending our home corner into the book nook, adding babies, bassinettes, bottles, blankies and a doctor's kit. We have seen the children cook food for each other, check in on each other, help each other go to sleep, care and show concern for each other. The children are extending out of their friendship groups, welcoming others. 

We have been focusing on pre writing shapes and skills. Pre-writing skills are the fundamental skills children need to develop before they are able to write. These skills contribute to the child's ability to hold and use a pencil, and the ability to draw, write, copy, and colour. A major component of pre-writing skills are the pre-writing shapes. These are the pencil strokes that most letters, numbers and early drawings are comprised of. These strokes include the following strokes: |, —, O, +, /, square, \, X, and Δ. But the great thing is, that this exercise is a great confidence builder- because how hard is it to get up in front of a group and do something! All of the group are very happy and confident to try and I think that makes the foundation of happy little learners. 

Miss Chrystel has made some amazing resources for our room, like counting boards and puzzles, story stones and counters. The children have absolutely loved engaging in these and are developing care for our resources.
Thank you,

Miss Amy, Miss Chrystel, Miss Manita and Miss Ailish

Wunya Families,

It has been half a year already, yet we feel only a month has passed!

This month we welcome some children who are back from the break time, some from transitioning and one new child join into our room. Our room almost back to normal and we excited to inform you that we have a full room from Tuesday to Thursday! Thank you for your trust and support for the last couple of months.

This month we mainly focused on diversity and acceptance of differences as our support for the Black Lives Matter campaign. We all (the children and educators) learned about equality, compassions and understanding about needs despite of our skin colour, cultural background and other differences. One of the activity that we did lately was the children looked at themselves in the mirror and let them paint their appearance as what they saw such as their eyes colour and their skin colour. Throughout this activity we had one and one discussion about our differences and acceptance of the differences towards others.

Our learning about days of the week, colour and shape recognition, name spelling, letters and number recognition and emotion regulation are part of our routines along the year.

We endeavour to assist the needs of the children and families and should you have any concern or feedback please feel free to let us know. Together we could implement a better learning environment for all.

xx
