We have been given some lovely woolen blankets for the children to sew their own designs from a drawing to an item of their choice. We have had a scarf, house, pillows, hat and many others.
The children have made their own Father’s Day cards featuring underpants to follow on from our recent alien
underpants story books.
Outside play has included confidence courses designed with the children themselves, as children challenge their own developing physical skills. We have also enjoyed carpentry with our own designs and other fun activities such as gloop and baking too. Spring has come and the children are now learning about spring time and what the change of season means to the world around us.
The hall has recently had a clean of the outside and gutters. Our new grass by the log cabin has established itself now and looks great.
Preschool has now earned the certificate for being a breast feeding friendly environment, after we have included resources to our parent information packs, supporting new mums and recognising areas within the preschool for mums to be with baby.
Nutrition evening with Jasmin Jackson of the Heart Foundation
On Tuesday 1st September we held a parent evening to hear more about healthy food for preschoolers and what to look for on food labels. This was a beneficial evening for us all and we were pleased to have our new computer screen to view Jasmin’s presentation. The Nutrition evening was so popular we may have another evening with Jasmin soon. We are well on our way to achieving the Heart Foundation Heart Award.
Recycling paper and cardboard
We appreciate all your donations of paper and cardboard reducing the carbon footprint. Our bin is emptied on Thursday’s and we appreciate support from our community.
We are now taking enrolments for term four and would like to hear from any parents who may be interested in coming in for an information pack and to find out about any available spaces.
We also have a Wednesday playgroup for those parents wanting to visit with their child and to find out more of what we offer. Call 362 8606 www.lakeokarekapreschool.co.nz or like us on Facebook.
