Early Learners Room

Dear Valued Families of the Early Learners Room,

We are excited to share with you the latest happenings and highlights in the Early Learners Room for this term. Firstly, a big welcome to Alfie, Alaska and Amelia, our new friends in the Early Learners Room. It is great to see you all making new friends and exploring your new surroundings.

The children have been very busy in the past few months celebrating various events and working towards their own milestones, skills and development.

In June, July, August the children participated in a lot of different events including Reconciliation Week, Best Friend's Day, Yoga Day, Naidoc Week, Teddy Bear's Picnic, National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day, National Red Nose Day, Science Week and Book Week! We all took part in lots of different activities and experiences to celebrate these events. What a fun-filled few months it has been in our Early Learners Room.

In the Month of June we had fun exploring colours, shapes, space and our human body. Throughout our play experiences the children especially enjoyed the physical obstacle course as they worked on their gross motor skills while learning about their bodies.

In July we focused on learning about our five senses as we explored touch, taste, hearing and sight senses. We then transitioned to learn all about the benefits of healthy eating as we created healthy food together such as a fruit salad, blueberry muffins as well as banana bread.

In the month of August our focus was learning about nature. We each created our very own grass heads. The children grasped the grass seeds, planted them and watered them. We have been watching them grow and they have been growing so fast. The children showed interest as they joined in, creating a veggie patch together with snow peas! We look forward to another wonderful term together!

Kind Regards, Miss Emily and Miss Alexis.

Junior Early Years Room

Welcome to the newsletter for Junior Early Years Room A special welcome to our new friends that have moved up from Early Learners, SJ and Alice, as well as our new friends that have begun their education and care journey with us.

What a fantastic couple of months we have had in the room. Over the last couple of months the children have participated in so much learning and exploring. The Junior Early Years children have explored Arctic Animals, Jungle Animals, Sea Animals and Farm Animals. During these experiences the children have had the opportunity to explore, create and use their imagination through sensory play, drawing, role playing and identifying animals they are familiar with in books and puzzles.

In the coming months we will participate in experiences that support the development of our colours, shapes and name recognition. The children will have the opportunity to explore these through art and craft, science experiments and cooking experiences.

The children have also been visiting the garden at least twice a week where they have been engaged in weeding, raking and planting some spring onions.

Kind Regards, Miss Kylie, Miss Kara and Miss Verity.

Early Years Room

Hello and Welcome to the Early Years Room. During the last few months the children have been involved in many learning and educational experiences. We focused on implementing experiences that supported the children in learning their colours throughout an eight week project. We also explored their colours through science experiments, cooking and art and craft.

During July the children showed an interest in different animals from around the world. We started with our jungle animals, exploring tigers, elephants, frogs, sloths and snakes. The children responded well to learning about these animals and showed an extended interest in participating in experiences that involved learning more about other animals.

This month we have just started exploring our sea animals and have so far looked at sharks and jellyfish and will continue to explore more sea creatures. The children have really embraced the activities and we look forward to introducing more experiences that meet the children's interests of animals.

During this time we have also had some special events such as NAIDOC Week, Teddy Bear's Picnic, Reconciliation Week, National Best Friend's Day and International Yoga Day. In the next couple of weeks we will be celebrating National Red Nose Day, National Science Week and Children Book Week.

KInd Regards, Miss Tia and Miss Benita.

Kindergarten Room

Welcome Valued Families to our Kindergarten Room.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new friends Ewai, Ollie, Ej and Hamiora into the Kindergarten program. The children have thrived in making new friends and building relationships with the Educators and their peers in the classroom. It has been a busy term in the Kindergarten Room as we continue to prepare the children for the beginning of their formal school journey.

During the month of July, we focused on NAIDOC celebrations and extended our learning on diversity. The Teddy Bear's Picnic was another great opportunity for the children to develop communication, language skills and creating imaginative play ideas.

Over the next month we will be focusing on the children's individual interests, creating a learning environment and experiences based around the children's individual learning needs and development. We will keep developing our ongoing objectives for this year such as reading the calendar, identifying days of the week, name writing and recognition, alphabet letters and sounds and number writing and recognition.

We are also developing observations and listening skills through literature and show and tell. These experiences support in building children's confidence in front of their peers, asking and answering questions.

It has been an amazing past few months of learning and development to support the children in their preparation for a smooth transition to primary school.

A big thank you to all families for ongoing support. If you have any questions regarding your child's routine and their development, please feel free to contact us through the centre.

Kind Regards, Miss Cheri and Miss Regina.

Cooking with Children!

Mini Cinnamon Scrolls

Super easy    ● 1:30 mins Prep Time   ● 0:15 mins Cooking Time


● 225 ml milk

● 75 g unsalted butter

● 425 g plain flour sifted

● 70 g caster sugar

● 1/2 tsp sea salt

● 10 g fast action dried yeast


● 75 g butter softened

● 50 g caster sugar

● 2 tsp ground cinnamon


● 1/2 cup icing sugar sifted

● 1 tbsp milk


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.

2. Heat the milk and butter in a small pan until it almost comes to a boil, then take it off the heat and allow it to cool down. You don't want the milk to be too hot when you add the yeast or it will prevent it from rising.

3. Mix together the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Add the yeast and stir to combine. Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and add the warm milk mixture. Mix everything together until the dough starts pulling away from the side of the bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, make the filling. Mix together the butter, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl until well combined. Lightly spray two mini muffin trays with oil, or grease with melted butter, and set aside.

5. Divide the dough into two pieces. Working with one piece at a time, and using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 20 cm x 30 cm rectangle. Spread 1/2 the filling evenly over the rectangle. Roll it up using one of the long edges to make a long cylinder shape.

6. Using a sharp knife, cut the rolled up dough into 12 slices. Place each piece into a mini muffin cup. Continue with the other piece of dough until all the cups are filled. Cover the trays with oiled plastic wrap and let the scrolls rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes, or until they've doubled in size.

7. Bake the scrolls on the middle shelf of the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the scrolls from their pan and let them rest on a cooling rack while you prepare the icing.

8. To make the icing, whisk together the icing sugar and milk in a small bowl. If it seems too thick add a little more milk 1/2 teaspoon at a time. Once you have a smooth, runny icing, drizzle it over the scrolls. Allow the scrolls to set before serving.

NOTES: Un-iced scrolls can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
