Letter from the Centre Manager

Dear Valued Families of Kidi Kingdom Child Care Centre - Springfield.

Welcome to our Autumn Newsletter Edition for 2021.

Firstly, I would like to thank our current and new families for choosing Kidi Kingdom Child Care to provide high quality education and care for your children.

Thank you to our families and Miss Curtis from Woodcrest State College who attended our Family Orientation Night. I hope that you and your child's educators were able to plan achievable goals to help your child's development and milestones for the duration of 2021.

All the team at Kidi Kingdom Child Care - Springfield and I were overly excited about our first open centre event since restrictions took place! We celebrated Mother's Day and we were extremely impressed with the great turn out we had of our Mums, Aunties and Grandmothers who could attend our Kidi Kingdom Child Care Springfield event. We look forward to seeing you at future events.

With Winter approaching, I wish to advise families to please ensure correct weather clothing is packed in your child's bag and correctly labelled to ensure correct items are being sent home and been accounted for.

I hope our families are enjoying the updates from the Hubhello APP, if you need any support with this program, please speak to me at your convenience.

Please like our Facebook page and we always appreciate our loyal families helping our centre by share your positive experiences to the local community by writing a quick Google, CareForKids or Facebook review. Thank you for the families that have already taken to the time to write a review.

Kind Regards
April Hall
Centre Manager

Around the Classroom

Early Learners

Dear Families of the Early Learner's Room.

What a fun-filled and eventful time we have had over the last couple of months with the children settling in so well into their day care routines. The children have been making new friends and building great relationships with each other as well as all the other educators in our centre.

Firstly, we would like to give a big welcome to all our new friends who have started with us; Eli, Alannah, Ruby and Brianna, it has been lovely having you join our Kidi Kingdom family! A big congratulations on our little ones who celebrated their first birthdays, Happy Birthday to Ashton, Ella, Paige and Aiden!

Our learning and discoveries over the months of March and April included a wide range of themes including the seasons, the weather, nature, insects, reptiles, dinosaurs, Australian animals, African animals, and sea animals. We have based our learning on themed books, hands on activities and sensory art aiming to bring physical elements and organic material such as plants, leaves, grass, feathers, sticks, bamboo, and straw into the experiences and further investigating subjects with the use of short educational videos and songs. This month the children are being introduced to the subject of farm animals, farming and learning all about where all our healthy food comes from in conjunction with colours, shapes and counting revision.

We also participated in special events including Crazy Hair day, St. Patrick's Day, Harmony Day, Easter festivities, Superhero Day, paying our respects on ANZAC Day and celebrating all our wonderful Mother's and Carers with a special morning tea that included activities and cherished moments with your little ones. We also have just recently celebrated Aunt's & Uncle Morning Tea. Our upcoming events in the next few months include Best Friend's Day, Crazy Costume Day, NAIDOC week, Teddy Bear Picnic and Pyjama Day - please watch for more information on these events in your news feed.

Daily free play experiences have given the children opportunity for socialising, pinpointing interests, and strengths. While also working on our gross and fine motor skills, with the children quickly growing from one milestone to the next and determining any needs or extra support required as we go along. Please feel free todiscuss with either one of us or Miss April if you feel your child needs any additional support that we may be able to offer or if you require further resources and information on development and early years milestones.

For any other concerns or queries, as always please do not hesitate to either email the centre, pop it into your child's communication book or talk to us, we are happy to answer any questions and help wherever we can.

Kind Regards, Miss Chrystle and Miss Jazarna.


Junior Early Years

Welcome Families to Junior Early Years Newsletter.

Over the past three months we have been following the children's interests. We have experienced exploring dinosaurs through imaginative play, fossil making and learning names of our favourite dinosaurs by researching using the wonderful resources and technology within our centre. Following our interest in dinosaurs we were fascinated with the big rains that occurred in March and participated in learning about the different types of weather patterns including wind, rain, sunshine, and snow. In response to our program and the children's interests we explored different aspects of Easter including the Easter bunny, Easter eggs, Easter bonnets and baskets while reading lots of stories about Easter.

Following our parent orientation evening we received lots of valuable feedback about which direction you would like your children's learning to go next. A common theme emerged of colours and shapes and so this became our next learning project. We enjoyed lots of creative art experiences relating to these learning areas including painting, collage, and drawing. This helped us expand our cognitive understanding of these concepts through colour and shape sorting skills while learning names and features of common shapes and colours through group time discussions.

Together we explored the importance of ANZAC Day and Mother's Day before moving onto our current learning project which is 'Under the Sea'. We are continuing our toilet training journey with many of the children in our class. If you would like to have your child start their toilet training journey, please speak to the Junior Early Years educators.

We would like to remind parents to please label all belongings and if your child's daily needs have changed. We would love for you to contact us at any time via email if you wish to discuss your child's development and learning.

Kind Regards, Miss Sarah, Miss Shaena and Miss Brooke.


Early Years

Welcome to the Early Years Room. We would like to welcome Archie and his family to our Kidi Kingdom Early Years class, we hope you have lots of fun learning and meeting your new peers.

Over the term we will be looking at insects and talking about their life cycle. We have begun with the caterpillar and how it turns into a beautiful, coloured butterfly. (This comes from the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar).

We hope to start our Natures cape walks over to the local park located at the back of our centre. If you have not yet, parents could you please sign our Natures cape forms to ensure your child can attend this program. Our risk management plan is available upon request. We will be investigating all the other insects that we come across and their life cycle.

We have explored our colours over the last term and will continue on our learning daily along with our shapes and numbers. Miss Natalie has started a take home bear project that we are all extremely excited for. As we have a few defence forces families, past and present we have decided to use an Army Bear and an Air Force Bear. It would be amazing if everyone could please take these bears home at some stage over the year. While these bears are in your home you can take some pictures of any adventures that the bear gets up to or you can write a little journal of the bears weekend with your child so that we can talk about it throughout the week for our group times. (if you feel that you are unable to do this, please let Miss Natalie know and she will not send the bear home.)

It's great to see the children explore the bigger outdoor environments as they enhance their physical and social well-being. They have quite a lot of challenges to explore and I am sure with lots of guidance from all educators they will achieve obstacles within the outdoor environment.

A few housekeeping rules:

Please provide your children with a fitted sheet and a flat sheet for rest time it can get very chilly in the room when we are not moving around. A hat with your child's name that can be left at the centre, a drink bottle, nappies (you are more than welcome to bring in a box or bag and we can then let you know when we are running low) and lucky last plenty of clothes especially if we are toilet training.

Thank you to all our families for all your support.

Kind Regards, Miss Natalie, Miss Raquel and Miss Madison.



Welcome Pre-Prep Families to our Autumn Newsletter.

Over the last few months, we have been working on our self-help skills, counting (starting to understand relationship between numbers and objects), recalling events correctly, sequency, name recognition, ABC's(letter sound) and 'Show and Tell' experiences. We will also cover many other different topics and child-initiated play-based learning experiences especially, for important lifelong development to assist your children in preparing for their journey into Pre next year.

In the coming months we will continue to work on our ongoing objectives: Reading the calendar, recording the weather, counting up and counting down, recognising numbers, ABC's, name recognition, pre-reading and pre-writing exercises, problem solving activities, developing observation and listening skills. We will continue practicing our children's fine motor skill development and pencil grip skills to assist in developing confidence for pre writing. We will be focusing on outdoor games, science experiments and excursions within our neighbourhood to help expand their learning. We are all looking forward to working closely with your children and yourselves. We always encourage parent input and welcome all your suggestions to be able to better support your child's learning, development, and growth.

Kind Regards, Miss Maritza and Miss Taneeka.


Before and After School Care / Vacation Care

Welcome Families to School Care and Vacation Care Room. We have had so much fun with the children last term with extensive science experiments, cooking, team building and planning the Vacation Care Program.

During Vacation Care we explored some Local Parks where we created our own garden games, we visited indoor event at Time-Zone which was the children's favorite venue, Indoor Bowling competitions, a trip to the Redbank Movies and had swimming adventures at the Orion Lagoon.

In the centre this term we will extend on more cooking and science experiments as the children wish to further their skills more. A reminder to families that the June School Holidays will commence on Monday 28th of June, 2021.

Please contact our Centre Manager April to obtain your June/July Vacation Care program and to secure your position.

Kind Regards, Miss Josephine.


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
