August/September Newsletter 2022

Waterlillies Room

Hello everyone, My name is Gabby and I am the new lead educator in the Waterlillies Room as Anne is currently away on maternity leave.  I am looking forward to working with Katherine and sharing adventures with your littlest ones.  It is such a privilege getting to watch the develop and grow in to their own little person.  I can’t believe we are in August already! Hopefully we are on the tail end of these cooler mornings and we will be able to swap back to our summer routine soon.

Dental Week:1st-7th August  We will be focusing on teaching the children good dental hygiene practice and we will also introduce our tooth brushing program to the older children in the room. They will start to brush their teeth daily after they wake up from their rest. The centre will provide an age appropriate toothpaste and tooth brush. We will also be offering the children play-based experiences that encourage healthy eating.

Googabinj Show: Thursday the 4th of     August at 10.30am.

Googabinj, the Australian Bush Turkey is Craig Kemp’s spirit animal.  Craig is a Ghungalu man from central Queensland who takes great pride in passing on traditions and culture from his family. 

Kindy Photos are on Tuesday 9th until Thurs 11th of August, you should have received an email with your child’s photo day, please see the office if you have not.

Book Week: Saturday 20th August until Friday 26th of August

Will see us reading lots of our favourite stories.  We have a great parent library outside the kitchen in the foyer that your encouraged to borrow from and celebrate  books.

Father’s Day: Sunday 4th September

On Friday Sept. 2nd, we will be hosting our Father’s Day breakfast. Dads, grandad’s and uncles are invited to a sit down breakfast with their child to say thank you to the special men in our lives.  We hope to see you there. 

Monday 20th September: Footy Colour’s Day, support kids living with cancer by wearing your footy teams colours—any code.  We would appreciate a gold coin donation for all these causes. 

We have a few children that have turned, or are turning two very soon. Our Waratah Room is currently full so these children moving up is dependent on there being space. Your child not moving up as soon as they turn two will not have any effect on their development as our program is based on each child’s individual needs and interest and we are lucky enough to have an abundance of resources to cater for these.

If you have any concerns, please see myself or Tanya, until next time

Gabby and Katherine
