Around the Classroom

Early Learners

Dear Families of the Early Learners Room,

Wow, hasn't this year just flown by fast already! We have been very busy in the Early Learners Room and would like to give a big warm welcome to the families who have started with us recently.

We would like to welcome Miss Tahlia into our Early Learners Room, she has a very bubbly personality, and we are positive that you will love her. Miss Taliais starting her career in Childcare with our Kidi Kingdom family and is studying her Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care.

We have been focusing on animals recently and learning about what animals live under the water. Miss Natalie has created a pond which we are decorating and adding lily-pads, frogs, ducks etc. The children are having so much fun with this creative project.

Our Early Learners children are still extremely interested in books, the children have been reading plenty of books with their friends and educators, intrigued with all the stories. Anyone can be a great storyteller and we encourage our families to grab a book, sit down beside your child and read and / or observe the book, pointing out pictures or words and simply just talking about the book. You will be a great role model as your child will learn by watching you hold a book the right way and seeing how you move through the book by gently turning the pages, talking, and singing everyday helps children's development in so many ways.

We are still continually strict hand washing protocols, with COVID still up in the air, we are keeping children aware of their surroundings and constantly washing our hands. Germs from unwashed hands can be transferred to other objects and then transferred to another person's hands, removing germs through hand washing helps prevent the spread of germs.

Thank you, Miss Natalie and Miss Tahlia.


Junior Early Years

Dear Families of the Junior Early Years Room,

I would like to introduce myself; I am Puneet Kaur and I am the new Lead Educator for the Junior Early Years Room. I have completed my Certificate 3 in Education and Care and the Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. I am currently studying my Diploma in Leadership and Management. Miss Steph gave birth to an adorable baby boy on 14th of April, 2021, before she went on maternity leave, I spent a time with her getting to know the room, the children and the routine. In that time I created great bonds with the children and got to understand their routines to support them in their learning journey.

Over the past few months, we have planned all the experiences according to the children's interests as well as to increase their interests and skills. We did lots of sensory activities such as bubble wrap play, rice play, oats play, gardening, and nature related activities. These activities increase children's hand and eye coordination skills, colour recognition skills, language skills as well fine and gross motor skills.

I have some short-term goals that I would like to achieve with the children in the Junior Early Years room, such as to teach moral values to children and start with basics including manners. For behavior management we teach children to use gentle hands, say sorry, say thank you and we talk about our feeling for example what are you feeling today ? happy, sad, cry or good. Along with this I am searching for a few websites about their sensory play, painting, gardening and many more. Below is a link to some gardening tips and activities.

Thank you, Miss Puneet, Miss Astrid and Miss Simone.


Early Years

Welcome Families of the Early Years Room.

I would like to welcome all our new families to our classroom. We are looking forward to getting to know you all. March was a fun filled and exciting month in our classroom as the children enjoyed celebrating St Patrick's Day and the Irish culture, it was wonderful to see the children dancing to Irish music and participating in many art and craft activities. During the month of April, the children have been very active and engaged in exploring the outdoor environment, gardening, watering the plants and showing an interest in recycling, sustainability and taking care of the environment. The children have created many beautiful pieces of artwork around these topics including flowers made from recycled egg cartons, and a collage made from recycled newspaper. It was great to see the children's excitement when they painted using natural materials including leaves, sticks and bark.

As Anzac Day was on the 25th of April, we celebrated Anzac Day here at the centre on the 26th April, the children took part in learning activities to commemorate the brave soldiers by making red poppies and a handprint wreath. The Month of May we have been working on building friendships and creating a sense of belonging through small group experiences, dance and movement and group time discussions.

We welcome all families to be an active part of our daily curriculum and build continued partnerships within our service. We love to hear about all your weekend adventures, so please do not hesitate to let us know and we can extend on these experiences through a fun and engaging curriculum plan.

Thank you! Miss Rebecca and Miss Holly.



Welcome to our families of the Pre Prep Room.

The Pre Prep children have been extremely busy learners the past couple of months. We have been having group discussions about "Big School" and had a visit from the Upper Coomera State College Learning Co-Ordinator, Mrs Chapman.

During March, the children have been working with the children to recite all the sounds of the alphabet and we have been continuing with this experience a couple of times each day. We focused on promoting positive friendships and acceptance, as we talked about diverse cultures and upcoming events, such as St Patrick's Day on the 19th of March where the children participated in fun collaging activities.

In April, the children enjoyed the opportunity to explore with syllables they seemed to grasp the concepts quickly.

In May the children began to engage in more in-depth learning, and therefore we are revising letter sounds, rhyming words, syllables and introducing two and three letter words. We are also providing more opportunities for one-on-one support during the next couple of months. To encourage the children to extend on their emergent writing skills, including activities such as clay experiences to strengthen fine motor skills, and learning to write their names.

We are continuing to incorporate a variety of cultural songs and activities during our group times and indoor play experiences as well. We have some more fun learning experiences on the program over the next few weeks including gardens, science experience and more. There is a great free app called Writing Wizard for children to practice on their writing skills.

Thank you, Miss Antoinetta and Miss Rachael.


Before and After School Care / Vacation Care

Dear Families of the School Care Room.

My name is Miss Naila, I have my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. I'm currently studying my Bachelor of Early Childhood. I am the second Early Childhood Teacher at the centre and I am the Lead Educator for the school care program that we provide here at Kidi Kingdom Child Care Centre - Coomera.

During my time so far, I have connected with all the children and expanded on the children's interests for experiences. We are currently focusing on sustainability activities for the centre, looking at things we can make, things we can recycle and things we can save.

Once we arrive back to Kidi Kingdom from the Bus trip in the afternoon we have been enjoying discussions about our day at school and over some afternoon tea.

Vacation care is approaching soon and we encourage you to register your enrolment as we have an amazing program on offer this school holidays. I look forward to bonding with your children and developing new relationships with our families. If you have any questions regarding your children and our program, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you, Miss Naila.


Ways to Savour Your Children While You Have Them

I heard the sound of small feet trailing me, followed by his words " It's okay, Mum." I pushed the hair off my forehead and sighed, recognising that this was genuine empathy my son was showing me. A minute before, I'd been mumbling a familiar script under my breath, something about me being the one who does all the work around here and getting nothing but complaints in return. I was put out, and at 8 years old, my oldest child was old enough to notice.

Those words- "It's okay, Mum" - pulled me out of it. I softened and saw him as a human again (instead of one of my dependents). He was right. It was okay. Deep breath: We have everything we really need..

Sometimes we need a little reminder to slow down. Here is Erica Layne's 32 ways to enjoy the little moments.

1. Watch them when they sleep.

2. Inhale them after they bathe.

3. Steal some extra time brushing your child's hair. Keep on brushing it straight through the teen years.

4. Read the heartfelt things your kids write about you and let them sink in. (When our kids give us valentines or birthday cards, are we really taking their words in? It's time to start.)

5. Break a personal parenting rule or two. I recently took my 3-year-old daughter to get a pedicure. I mean, she's three! But as it turns out, it's a memory I'll savour for a long time.

6. Be silly. Sing at the top of your lungs in the car, dance in the grocery store, pull a harmless prank..

7. Let them climb into bed with you (sometimes).

8. Don't round UP on their ages. Even if your child turns 7 in two months, keep thinking of him as 6. There's no need to hurry childhood along, right?

9. Fill your home with photos of them.

10. Practice living simply so your mind is clearer, which-in my case-helps me experience more moments as they come.

11. See your children through a camera lens. Sometimes this change in perspective is all you need-to see your child in a new light.

12. Capture, whether with your camera or a pen and paper, not just their milestones but the scenes you see every single day.

13. Choose one thing you can accept, rather than tolerate. Letting go can alleviate so much agitation and allow you to live more in the now with your loved ones.

14. When they're hurting, try to place yourself in a similar situation from your past and really remember what it felt like to be where they are.

15.Prop your phone camera up and use the time lapse feature to record a family meal or a homework session. Looking at it later will help you appreciate the beautiful chaos of raising children.

16. Watch them closely when their minds are fully engaged in something they love.

17. Do something for you. Often. "You can't pour from an empty cup."

18. Climb under some blankets and read to them. (And for those moments, choose not to let it bother you when you get sat on and accidentally elbowed a dozen times during your reading session.)

19. Get rid of guilt. It's clouding your view.

20. Regularly take some time to remember your childhood. It'll help you better appreciate theirs.

21. Claim for yourself and your family a distraction-free block of time. A morning with your laptop closed an afternoon away from your phone...

22. Use this mental image to help you refocus on what-and who-really matters to you.

23. Make it your goal for a day to double the amount of eye contact you have with your children.

24. When you pack away a size of clothing your child has outgrown, make a little ritual of remembering this last stage and how quickly it passed.

25. Take more video footage!

26. Build yourself a supportive village. Not a lot of "savouring" goes on when you're parenting on an island. (Too much energy is going to survival.) We need each other.

27. Organize some (super simple) one-on-one dates with your children. If you need structure for this (and simplicity!), try letting your child stay up 15 minutes late-to do something just with you-on the date of her birthday every month. For example, a child born on April 16th would have one-on-one time every 16th of the month..

28. If you child is old enough to text, take screen shots of cute text conversations you exchange.

29. If hurrying makes you agitated, try building more free space into your schedule so you don't have to rush so much between activities.

30. Snuggle up with them for movie time.

31. Listen.

32. Experience something new with them-something they've never seen.

This is your motherhood. You only get to do it once
