Learning at Preschool this Month
The children are enjoying learning Mandarin Chinese with Lamees on Wednesdays. Some of the experiences at Preschool are the sharing of baking. Quickly Preschool transforms into a café as we set up to enjoy our home baked treats. We promote children’s learning of caring for the environment by gardening, composting, recycling and much more. The children are enjoying many learning experiences such as sewing, thanks to Tasmin’s Nana Carole. They are learning about three dimensional shapes, creating robots, printing techniques and much more.
Our social evening to welcome our new families was held on Friday 30th August. This was a fun meet and greet occasion with families enjoying a take out dinner at Preschool. The children enjoyed our special guest story teller Lara Hania who shared stories with us all. Thank you to everyone involved in making our family whānau evening such a success.
Recycling Cardboard and Paper
We really appreciate the support from the community to recycle and this not only reduces our carbon footprint, it also helps funds for Preschool.
