Term 4 off to a flying start

The first week back has been filled with children warmly greeting their friends and re-establishing friendships. The children have enjoyed sharing their stories of what they did during the two-week break. From swimming for hours in a pool at Port Douglas, to seeing a real octopus at the Aquarium to riding their bike or watching the footy, the children have certainly been busy.

The children are excited to be back in their classrooms and engaging in a variety of learning experiences.  Our learning environments are planned and adjusted accordingly to meet the changing needs of all children and to promote and maximise children’s learning and development, enhance inclusion and support children’s curiosity.

As the weather warms up the children have been enjoying spending time outside. Our new wooden tee pee has been a great attraction to our ELC play ground. The children were delighted to see it and already it has been used for a variety of things – from a castle, to a spot to hide when playing hide and seek (a favourite game at the moment for many of our Early Learner children!), a quiet area to sit and think, an area to read, build with blocks or have fun with a friend.

We look forward to supporting and extending the children’s skills, knowledge and learning in our programs over the coming weeks of Term 4.
