Learning at Preschool this Month
We are very fortunate to have Karina teach the children Spanish on Wednesdays. They have learnt greetings, colours and much more. Some of the experiences at Preschool have been baking our Christmas cake and chocolate cake for the Nativity evening. The children also enjoyed baking chocolate chip cookies, and chicken rice for the shared lunch held on Friday 15th November. We were delighted by our special visitors Sandra Goodwin, Geoff Palmer and Heather Horton. This was a special day for learning how we can cook with our own home grown vegetables and the importance of food to welcome guests.
We promote children’s learning of caring for the environment by gardening, composting, and recycling. The children have practised and performed their Nativity play and are true stars, thank you to the teachers. Thank you to Leslie for being our Narrator and sharing the Christmas story.
Education Review Office
We had our review on Monday 2nd December which involved our families, teachers and Board to review how well we deliver early childhood education. The report will be online in March 2014.
Recycling Cardboard and Paper
We really appreciate the support from the community to recycle as this not only reduces our carbon footprint, it also helps funds for Preschool.
Special thanks to Sandra Goodwin, for the fabulous support of baking and icing the Fruit Christmas cake. The children have enjoyed Sandra’s visits. Also to Mike Goodwin (Santa) for the 16th December, thanks again Santa Mike.
We do have limited spaces for the new year so to avoid disappointed please call the preschool. Please let any families with preschool children know about the preschool in your community.
We close on Friday 20th December - Term one starts Monday 3rd February 2014. For Preschool enquires please call Debbie now on 362 8606 after hours 345 9136. You can email any queries to Preschool over the holiday period.
