From the Office
Welcome back to our first newsletter in 2018! We trust you have had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season. The exciting New Year is ahead of us and we will start the year by transitioning our educators into different rooms on 15.1.2018. They will start with setting up the goals and preparing the environment for the children, who will move up the week after.
In our Pips room (6 weeks to 2 years), we will have Miss Sanchita and Miss Annie
In our Sprouts 1 room (15 months to 2 years), we will have Miss Melissa and Miss Zeljka
In our Sprouts 2 room (15 months to 2 years), we will have Miss Isha only at the moment
In our Buds room (2-3 years), we will have Miss Sharon, Miss Lydia, Miss Hale and Miss Amanpreet
In our Blossom 1 room (3-4 years), we will have Miss Nikki and Miss Briohny
In our Blossom 2 room (3.5-5 years), we will have Miss Yu mei and Miss Cindy
In our Poppies room (4-5 years), we will have Miss Tertia and Miss Hamda.
Most of our children will be transitioning into new rooms on 22.01.2018. Though this is a great indication of their growth, it can also be an unsettling time for both children and families. The children are entering new rooms with new teachers and new relationships will need to be established. This is very common and it will last for a few weeks, but we would like to assure you with patience, time and positivity they will settle into happy little learners once again.
Please take the educators advice and hug/kiss your child, give them short reassurance that they will be fine and leave the area. Feel free to contact the educators by phoning our centre at any time.
If you have any concerns, please see Natasa
We will continue with our extra curriculum activities and on Mondays, we will have free sports activities for Kindergarten children only run by Federal Sports.
On Wednesdays at 10am, lovely Ann runs Happy Feet Fitness exciting themed adventure classes, for children aged between 20 months and 5 years. Their themed classes take stage performances and put them into a super fun, interactive and educational class format. With our 32 themes, children learn about nutrition, exercise and the world around us. Every child at our Centre will get one free trial, and then if they wish to continue with the program, the cost is $9.50 per class.
Every enrolled child receives special certificates and reports throughout the year, photos of themselves dressed up in the awesome costumes and weekly emails sent to you to keep you connected to what your child experienced & learnt in that class.
