Families of the Early Learners Room.
children have been busy bees these past few months
celebrating different events and working on their own skills
and knowledge. The Early Learners have been working on their
fine and gross motor skills as well as interacting and
communicating with their friends during play. We have
explored the different seasons of the year, engaging in art
and craft experiences to learn about each season. The Early
Learners celebrated Best Friends Day and Crazy Costume Day
in the month of June with their friends.
the children participated in NAIDOC week, Pyjama Day and
Teddy Bear's Picnic, taking part in lots of fun activities
to celebrate these events. We also held our own Olympic
Games and engaged in art and craft activities in honour of
Olympics Week. What a fun-filled few months it has been in
our Early Learners Room.

Junior Early Years
Welcome to the Junior Early Years Room.
like to extend a warm welcome to our new friends Bryan,
Ayesha, Enzo, Taylah and their families. Over the past few
months the children engaged in many experiences such as
Crazy Costume Day, NAIDOC Week, Pyjama Day and Teddy Bear's
Picnic. We have been focusing on healthy eating habits in
our room, the children name all the different fruit that
they eat each day during morning tea.
extended on the importance of Healthy Eating by creating
activities such as painting our own version of green leafy
vegetables and creating a healthy eating food basket
collage. In the next months to come we will be continuing
our Healthy Eating activities through fun, learning
experiences. We will be working closely with the children on
the room routine and self-help skills by building their
independence and confidence as they begin to grow and become
comfortable doing more things by themselves.

another Newsletter edition of the Early Years Room. Over the
past three months we have been following the children's
interests, working on self- help skills and on vocabulary
skills. We have explored our numbers and colours over the
last term and we will continue on our learning along with
shapes, weather, seasons, time of the day (such as morning,
afternoon and evening) and days of the week. In the month of
July we explored the importance of NAIDOC Week and also
participated in special events including Crazy Costume Day,
Teddy Bear's Picnic, Mini Olympics and Pyjama day.

welcome to all of our Pre-Prep families, including our new
friends Saphira, John, Summah and Andre!
few months have been very busy for the Pre-Prep's as we have
continued expanding our letter, number, shape and colour
recognition. The children have also been learning how to say
their first and last name, and some of the children have
been learning how to write their first name.
month of June a group of the children went on an excursion
to the snow which was a fantastic experience for the
children as they enjoyed making and throwing snowballs and
building a snowman. In July we were visited by the
Dental2You Clinic where some of the children saw the dentist
to have their teeth checked, counted and cleaned. This
prompted a lot of discussion about the importance of good
oral hygiene. The centre was also awarded with the
Woolworths Junior Landcare Grant in July where the funds
will be used to continue expanding our vegetable garden for
the Pre-Prep children to engage in. The children also
celebrated NAIDOC Week, Pyjama Day and Teddy Bear's Picnic
during the month of July.
coming months the children will continue working on their
already developing self-help skills which will support a
smooth transition to big school. We are hoping to commence
the Transition into Prep (TIP) program in Term 4 which will
provide the children with the opportunity to visit a local
school to familiarise themselves with the school
like to thank all of our Pre-Prep families for their ongoing
support. If you have any suggestions for things you would
like to see incorporated into the Pre-Prep program, we
welcome all suggestions.

After School Care / Vacation Care
parents, during the past few months our Schoolies have made
new friends and met new educators, explored new environments
and shown more confidence during vacation care. The children
have explored a variety of fun activities in and out of the
centre, as well as learning about the aboriginal culture
through NAIDOC Week celebrations.
June/July school holidays we got to explore many fun venues
and parks which included Queens park, Planetarium, botanical
gardens and cinemas. Unfortunately, due to the weather
conditions as well as COVID restrictions we were unable to
attend some of the activities we had planned but rest
assured we replaced these with exciting activities, games
and sports at our Kidi Kingdom centre. The schoolies enjoyed
creating and participating in obstacle course relays,
treasure hunts, board games, races, basketball, soccer,
tiggy and craft activities. As contribution to NAIDOC Week
the children engaged in group discussions, sharing their
thoughts about NAIDOC Week, learning various NAIDOC signs
and their meanings, playing various cultural games as well
as creating and decorating different cultural crafts to
children returned back to school we encouraged them as they
slowly settled back into school routine. Over the past few
months the Schoolies have created some crafts to celebrate
Teddy Bear picnic, the Olympic games and Pyjama Day.
forward to more celebrations coming up and hope to help the
children with completing homework during Before and After
have any questions or ideas we would love to hear from you.
for your continuous support. Miss Christina.
