Hello everyone,

Changes for winter

On particularly cold mornings we will change to our winter routine. This means we will play inside until morning tea and go out when the day warms up. In the afternoons we will return inside by 5pm as sunset arrives earlier.

With the weather in mind please ensure your child’s spare clothes are appropriate. Developing your child’s self-help skills is an important part of their learning at kindy. You assist them by providing clothing they can manage themselves – for example, Velcro or pull on shoes (instead of buckles and laces) and elastic waisted

pants/jeans (instead of tight buttons or clips). The children enjoy learning to fasten the zippers or buttons on jackets and cardigans and we offer support in this.
Gardening news

The children have successfully planted the large vegetable garden in Holly’s Yard. They will be learning how broccoli, leeks, Bok choi, lettuce, snow peas, zucchini, herbs and flowers grow over the coming weeks and months. We will play in Holly’s Yard every

Monday and Friday to give the children time to nurture the garden. Holly’s Yard is our own ‘Bush kindy’ with bush tucker plants, a native bee hive, trees to climb, tank rainwater available by pump and a range of natural areas to experience and investigate.
