March 2017 Newsletter

CHANGE OF WEATHER

Please be aware, with the change of season will come extra colds etc, cooler mornings and warm afternoons.

Please dress your child accordingly for the morning and we will change them, if necessary, throughout the day.

Please pack spare clothes for all seasons.

 

BELONGINGS

Please ensure you label EVERYTHING. This helps us to place appropriate items into the correct child’s bag. Please be aware, that in Tigger’s Place and Pooh’s Corner we encourage the children to look after their own belongings (a school readiness skill). Having items labeled helps us, when things are left behind, to be able to return them to you. If you have any items in your child’s bag that don’t belong to them – please return as they may have been placed in the incorrect bag.

 

FRUIT FOR TIGGER’S AND POOH’S CORNER

We are having a great variety of fruit coming in. Please remember to bring in a piece of fruit each day your child attends and place in the baskets in the foyer (otherwise bring in a bigger piece of fruit eg: watermelon, pineapple, rockmelon for the week)


DRINK BOTTLES

It is recommended that the children’s drink bottles have a lid to protect the mouth piece to avoid cross contamination. The drink bottles go into our eskies – if they fall over, the mouth pieces can touch each other. Our teachers do stand them up and encourage the children to do the same – however if they have a lid, this would be a more hygienic option.

 

STAFF TRAINING

We had 12 educators attend our Child protection refresher course on Saturday 18th February.

Very proud to have a team who are dedicated and passionate to refresh their qualifications – particularly on child protection.

Refreshing our knowledge of reporting concerns of child protection issues.

 

WEEKEND BOOKS/STRENGTH TREES

Please write in our weekend books! The information you put in there is so valuable.  The Weekend Book’s are for each room – this really enhances our partnership with families and allows us to plan activities based on children’s interest.

It’s not just for the weekend activities.  Let us know what you have been up to! From this information, we have a discussion with your child and plan activities based on this interest.

Also, you will have educators asking your child’s interest throughout the year. It’s always important to let us know current interests and what your goals are for your child.

The goals help us to work in partnership for your child – we use the interests to assist us in planning to achieve the goal.
