Dear Parents & Guardians,
Welcome to yet another news update for our wonderful Kidz Magic Capestone.
I'd like to start by saying a really big thank you to all the amazing families for making our Educators Day so special for the team of dedicated Early Childhood Educators we have here at our service. With your support and assistance I was able to make the day one to remember and I truly thank you for that.
The team were treated to a wonderful morning tea spread, personalised letters and cookies and even a massage as a massage therapist was organised for the morning to provide 5 minute neck and shoulder massages to the well deserving team. What a treat!
A reminder to all our families of our upcoming Parent/Educator Evenings on the 13th October (Junior End) and 14th October (Senior End) at 6:15pm. We look forward to seeing you on the evening. Don't forget to RSVP at Reception prior to the evening. If your unable to attend we also welcome you to discuss this with your child's Educators at any time and they can always arrange a one on one meeting with you.
Thank you to everyone for your school photo orders also. Photo year was a little different this year with Covid-19 but we got through it and it's been so lovely to see the beautiful photos and especially memorable class photos for each of you.

We have also been enjoying our visits from all the different beetles, praying mantis, ladybugs, and grasshoppers. This month has seen all our flowers bloom and our tomatoes turn red.
Welcome to Nursery 1 newsletter for September

Hello from Nursery 2
As you can see from our photos we have been kept very busy during the month.Our interests have been varied such as the musical instruments especially the xylophone and tambourines.The musical tables and musical spinning tops have also been popular.We are starting to use more words in our everyday play and expressions such as peek a boo as we hide from our friends.A lot of the children have been keenly participatingin an art activity regularly.Last week we tried a glueing experience, previous to that we learnt about cause and effect when we used tennis balls in our painting.
The children had so much fun when we washed our blocks at the sensory table, there were soap suds and water everywhere, what child doesn't love to splash in water.As the weather becomes warmer we will try to have some more water type activities so it would be great if we could have a spare set of clothes in your childs bag just in case.
A couple of dates to keep in mind….. On Wednesday 21 October we are going to celebrate Book Week, so we would love to see the children dress up in their favourite character and on Friday 30 October we are having a spooky dress up day for Halloween, if you don't want your child to participate in Halloween activities could you let us know.We welcome any feedback or queries you may have, please feel free to speak to either myself or Sandra at any time.
Until next month
Ms Liz, Ms Sandra, Miss Prema and Miss Swetha
Welcome to another month in Toddlers. Where is this year going, its already October.
We have had so many birthdays recently (and a few more coming up), I can't believe so many of our Toddlers are turning 2. Congratulations to Leo and Miller on the birth of their baby sister and brother as well.
We have a heap of exciting things happening in October, with our afternoon transitions getting to go outside to the big yard instead of the nursery yard, our parent teacher night on the 13th Oct (remember its a child free event), our book week dress up celebration on the 21st and our spooky dress up day for halloween on the 30th. If you dont want your child to participate in halloween please let me know :).
The weather has taken a turn and its starting to get really warm again. Please dress your child accordingly. We can always change your child if its gets cold during the day. Please remember this when it comes to their sheets as well, it does stay warm in our room so they only need a light top sheet.
One major thing we have noticed this month is the childrens speech. Most of our children are coming out with so much now, and not just words but 3 or 4 word sentences. One huge bonus of having some older children and some younger, is the older ones demonstrate and role model language and the younger children pick up so much from them. Perfect instance of peer learning.
We have also been doing a role call and acknowledement to country this past month. Every morning at group time we go through our roll and ask if the children are there. They are brilliant at recognising their name and putting their hands up saying here. The pride on their faces when we say their name is just beautiful. Our acknowledgement to country is a way for us to teach the children from an early age about our indigenous heritage and the land owners. It also helps get them ready for Senior Toddler and the big yard where the acknowledgement is said every morning.
Thats all for now, as usual if you ever have any concerns or feedback, dont hesitate to have a chat to me.

Here's our September Newsletter!
With the changing of the seasons we have been talking a lot about the weather and what's going on in the environment with flowers blooming and bugs flying around. The children have been finding harlequin beetles around and ladybirds around the gardens. Miss Chrystel and the children made harlequin bugs with shiny paper and leaves, engaged in a little ladybug and aphid activity with cotton balls and pegs and some of the children even brought in bugs they found at home!
We spruced up the room for Spring and made our areas a little bigger to accommodate the wonderful collaborative play going in. The children have been using the puppets together, creating animal environments and making food in home corner. We've added a wooden stable for our new horses, a garage for our cars, lots of new finger puppets and made the art area more open.
The children have been continuing with their letters and pre writing shapes. They have been recognising more and more letters and we are showing us drawings with re writing shapes and letters. The children are also bringing in their favourite books from home for us to read, the look of pride and excitement on their faces is magic.
Finishing up, this week we have been focusing on bees, talking about where they live, what they eat and harvest and how they make honey, how we harvest the honey etc. We did a honey and honeycomb taste testing, made honeycomb prints with bubble wrap and painted a bee using a visual provocation.
Thanks so much,
Miss Amy, Miss Chrystel, Miss Manita and Miss Dishu, Miss Ailish and Miss Dani
Welcome to our September milestones story.
This month our room started to learn about the letter formation using the Casey Caterpillar methods. We began by making the twig shape and the open mouth(the letter C) to continue improving the children's grip on the markers. We provided the opportunity for the children to experience the first step in writing and promote the visual and fine motor skill. The children did well in making the shape and grip the marker.
We rotated our resources in the room as you may see the groceries shop is no longer in display. We returned our home corner with the new resources of porcelain tea set, cups and plates. Thank you very much for all families who donated our learning resources.
Our Bahasa lesson keep on going as the children improved their pronunciation and we learned to sing the complete song of Topi Saya Bundar(My Round Hat).
Our show and tell is also part of the activity that the children love. Despite of taking their favourite things from home is the most interesting part to do, the children also gain their confidence in sharing the stories in front of the peers. It requires a fair bit of courage and confidence to talk in front of a big audience.
We are very proud of our children in rising up to new challenges, respecting other cultures and their amazing support to diversity and how much their confidence grow since the show and tell was introduced in the last couple months. Great achievements!
