Message from the Educational Program Leader

Welcome Valued Families of Kidi Kingdom Child Care to our Final Newsletter of 2021.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our current and new families for choosing our services and how excited I am to be the Educational Programs Leader across our Kidi Kingdom Child Care Centres. My new role will consist of ensuring all children are receiving the best high quality education and care and supporting our amazing educators to enhance each and every child's strengths, interest and needs. I will be visiting the centres on a weekly basis working with the children and educators to provide support and guidance where necessary. I look forward to reaching new goals with our educators for 2022.

Kind Regards, April Hall Educational Program Leader.

Message from the Junior Early Years Room

Hello and Welcome to our Junior Early Years Spring Newsletter.

It is with warmth and pleasure that we welcome Amira, Kayillan, Hazel, Kristiano, Sophia, Apollo and Atlas to our Junior Early Years Family. During the term the children have participated and showed support in special centre events such as Educators Day, Halloween, Fathers Day Celebrations and Child Protection Week. We have been supporting the children's development of self help skills in relation to attempting to make their own beds, responding to bodily needs of fluid and hunger, transitions from the home setting to childcare and expressing their needs for communication between peers.

In the next months to come we will move into focusing on our room routine, self help skills, counting, colour recognition, fun learning stories and exploring music through dancing and singing to support the children's strengths, interest and needs. We always encourage our families' suggestions and any feedback please feel free to contact us. We value your feedback in our Educate System as your suggestions, comments and educational opinions will assist us in ensuring your child's needs and interests are met. Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards, Miss Jill, Miss Sandy and Miss Jane.

Message from the Early Years Room

Welcome to the Early Years Classroom.

The last term for 2021 in the Early Years classroom has been very busy, fun and full of adventurous exploring. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to all our new friends and families who have become part of our Kidi Kingdom family in the past few months and hope you are all enjoying your time with us at Kidi Kingdom Child Care. As we have had new friends move up from the Junior Early Years Classroom, we have begun to re-focus on our primary colours and basic shapes as well as observing and extending learning opportunities on the children's strengths, interests and needs weekly. We have also enjoyed contributing to the special centre events as they occur each month like Father's Day, Halloween Day and Day for Daniel.

We thank all our friends and families for your continuous support and if you have any questions or ideas please share them with through the HubHello Educate App when new observations are issued to you.

Kind Regards, Miss Christina, Mr Hayden, Miss Antheya and Miss Shania.

Message from the Pre Prep / Kindergarten Room

Welcome to our Pre Prep/Kindergarten Spring Newsletter.

I would like to start by welcoming a number of amazing children and their families into the Pre Prep/Kindergarten Program - Amna, Evelyn, Mehtab, Greyson, and Tilly! The children have all done a fabulous job of making new friendships and relationships with all the children and educators of the classroom.

It has been a busy term in Pre-Prep/Kindergarten as we continue to prepare your children for the beginning of their formal schooling journey. We have focussed heavily on self-help skills with the children serving their own food at mealtimes, applying their own sunscreen, putting on their own shoes and hats, and packing away toys after play time as all these fundamental skills are to support your child on their next schooling adventure. We have also been recapping on letter, number, shape and colour recognition, name writing and recognition for the children who will be attending school next year.

During the month of September, the children engaged in a range of events such as Father's Day Celebrations where the children made gifts for their dads/special person in their life, Child Protection Week which was a great opportunity for the children to engage in discussions and activities relating to child safety and understanding the importance of emergency services. October was a very busy month with lots of events including World Teachers Day, Loud Shirt Day, Halloween and Day for Daniel. The children especially enjoyed participating in a trick or treating experience throughout the centre where we knocked on the doors of each room and got given some yummy treats. Loud Shirt Day was a new event for the centre this year, where we all wore our loudest and most vibrant shirts to raise some much-needed awareness for Aussie Kids with hearing impairments. Day for Daniel was also an important event for the Pre-Prep children to participate in to provide a deeper understanding into stranger danger and the importance of child safety.

At the beginning of November the children also began participating in show and share, which is a fantastic way to build confidence and verbal communication skills for your child. If you require another copy of the show and share roster, please don't hesitate to ask. Throughout the month of November the Pre Prep children who will be attending school next year will participate in the Transition into Prep Program (TIP), where they will visit Regents Park State School to familiarise themselves with the schooling environment. We will explore the tuck shops, prep classrooms, the playgrounds, understanding the difference in toileting and allocated zones for play and learning.

A friendly reminder that as the weather starts to warm up, it would be great if you could pack spare clothes in your child's bag so that they are able to participate in water play using the outdoor water park. Please ensure your child's clothing is clearly labelled to avoid items getting misplaced.

A big thank you to all of our families and community for your ongoing support. It is wonderful to have such positive relationships with you all in order to appropriately support your child in their developmental journey.

Kind Regards, Miss Cheri and Miss Kara.

Message from the Before, After and Vacation Care Room

Welcome to the final term of the school year in 2021. It has been an amazing year for everyone as we move into the remainder of the year and school term.

We have been focusing on building new relationships as we welcomed some new school children to our program. The children have been very receptive and have embraced our new friends.

We will be working on Christmas projects when school ceases in December. At this time we are all very focused on our education and learning.

Our Hubello Educate App is available for families to access your child's learning journey and we look forward to receiving your feedback.

Kind Regards, Miss Anthya.

Our Sustainable Practices Vegetable Garden!

In early 2021, as part of its ongoing commitment to a greener future, Woolworths in partnership with Landcare Australia opened their third round of Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants and Kidi Kingdom Child Care Hillcrest was accepted into the program! This has enabled the children and educators to all partake in sustainable gardening experiences and supporting the children to have a wider understanding on the role we all take in respecting our environments.
