August / September 2021

Banksia Room

Hello everyone,

The start of August has seen us in our strictest lockdown yet and we realise the difficulties this creates for our families and children.  We appreciate your strict adherence to the requirements and do our best to reassure and support those children of essential workers we care for each day.

When lockdown is over our curriculum will be greatly influenced by events in our calendar including  Dental health week beginning August 2nd your child brushes his or her teeth everyday after rest time with individual toothbrushes and toothpaste provided by kindy (these are sterilised every Friday). Through out the year we emphasise healthy eating and practices but this week concentrates fully on caring for our teeth.


National Science Week beginning August 16th  is an exciting time of hands on experiments, exploring STEM resources and using technology to develop scientific thinking and processes such as inferring, predicting, hypothesising, testing, experimenting, evaluating and generalising.

Book week begins August 23rd celebrating the wonderful world of amazing children’s books. We will focus on Australian authors, books about significant issues such as endangered animals and habitats, our favourite stories, and books with unusual illustrations or ideas. We encourage your child to bring their favourite book to kindy to share.

Chinese Moon Festival Day on September 21st. Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated in many East Asian communities. In China, it’s a reunion time for families

There are a couple of dress-up days your child will be invited to participate in (footy colours and superhero day) – details will be on the sign in sheet closer to the day.

As Spring returns we will have more water play so please continue to send a spare set of clothes as they are sometimes required.

We occasionally find items in the children’s bags that are not desirable within everyone’s reach at kindy such as lollies, vitamins, skin creams, lip balms, repellents and coins which the children may be inclined to share. We place these items on the high shelf above the lockers for your collection. Thanks for keeping these items at home.
