Our House is inviting the dentist back

Our unit on dental health last year was so successful. The children learned all about how to care for their teeth and had fun doing it too. We are planning to have the dentist come for another visit to talk to the children about their teeth. It is so important to teach children about dental health at an early age so they will have good dental hygiene. More information is coming.

Nursery Room News

In the nursery recently we have been focused on extending our independence skills. We have had both general room goals as well as individual goals that we have been encouraging and supporting the children to meet. A few of our current goals have been the children washing their own hands in the bathroom as well as scraping their bowls into the bin and then packing their cutlery and drink bottles away. Due to interests from several children we have also been working on identifying our colours. We have supported this goal through experiences such as blocks, playdough, painting, cars, books and songs. We have also been introducing a little bit of technology and it’s uses to the children in the past week. The children have been very interested in the books, the colour and animal books in particular. We have expanded on this interest by reading one of our animal stories and then going back through the book using the iPad to look up the animals and listen to and look at them on youtube. Could we please also remind our parents to please pack at least one extra full set of clothing (pants, singlet, shirt, socks and jumper). Could […]

The toddler room has been busy exploring sensory skills with many different activities Such as coloured rice, shaving cream, water play and play dough.

The children then extend on this by involving themselves with their educator in cooking banana muffins, which we all ate for afternoon tea. In the up and coming weeks the toddlers will be focusing on counting shapes and colours.
