Over the last couple of weeks, we have been focusing on Easter celebrations. In the week of 26th – 29th March, the children participated in making their own Easter Hats, then showed them off in the parades. All the educators had a hard time trying to make the tough decision on deciding on the winner each day, as each child have done a fabulous job in decorating their hats. Please click HERE for photos
On 21st March, we celebrated Harmony Day, which is a special day to celebrate the multiculturalism within Australia, arising from the successful integration of migrants into our community.
The children participated in the Crazy Hair Day - they got to come to the preschool with their hair as crazy as they liked. It was great seeing all the children being eager to participate in this event. For children who had forgotten about the event, we helped to do up their crazy hairdo, to allow them to be included and join in the fun. Please click HERE for photos
We had a special visit from the vet on 8th March. The children loved the experience! In preparation for the event, we had created our own Vet area, where the children got to learn all about been a vet. On the actual day of the vet visit, the children asked a lot of spontaneous and insightful questions. The vet brought along a surprise guest for the event - their clinic dog. Children were observed to respond positively in the interaction with the vet’s animal.
We celebrated the Chinese New Year (Year of the Dog) during the middle of February. Celebrative ornaments were displayed, and children helped in the making of some of the craft items or decorations. Miss Katrina also educated the children about the true meaning of Chinese New Year and even made sweet rice balls with the children. All the children got to take home a special gift that they made for their families with 2 tangerines.
The early years education and care services play a significant role in the community, educating and caring for our children. Early Childhood Education Week is a wonderful opportunity to continue raising the public profile of the quality service being delivered to children, their families and the broader community. This year’s theme was ‘Engage, Learn, Play...Play is Educational’. This theme had a strong emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication, literacy and numeracy, and the social and emotional development of our children.
