What a busy month we had in October.
We welcomed new children and some wonderful new educators too our team.
During October we went through our Assessment and Rating with the Education Department, our team did a wonderful job of showing the department the fantastic relationships our educators have with the families and children.
Our babies have been exploring shapes and colour while making a special pictures for their friend who has had sometime off sick. Working together to create the artwork helping the children engage and feel part of a group building on their social development.
Our preschool room have been enjoying group experiences, also working on social interactions engaging with one another verbally and through music. Getting to know our new educators and continuing to build on relationships already formed with each other.
Toddlers got busy with our recycled cable reels. Using their imagination and creativity they practiced rolling them down the hill to each other creating their own game. Using their developing gross motor skills and social development skills, they had great fun.
Nursery two have also been developing social skills with group experiences, using their senses to discover what's inside the special natural basket, and participating in large group art experiences building on their relationships with their peers and educators.
In other news we have set up a Parent Library in our reception area this has information from our local community and useful information on any changes and updates on children's health and well being guidelines.
During the month of November here at Kotara we will be welcoming some more new team members to out ever growing centre and taking part in recycling week creating lots of fun experiences for the children teaching them about the importance of recycling and working with lots of natural resources.
With Christmas fast approaching watch this space for fun filled experiences for all the family.
