NORTH ST MARYS CHILDREN’S CENTRE
Last term at North St Marys Children’s Centre we had some exciting additions to our environment! We have increased creativity in our art area with a new wooden easel, promoted our literacy development with a new paper mache tree, promoted positive meal times in our eating area with our new natural furniture layout and new nutrition policy, and added a computer to our technology station for children to promote inquiry, fine motor development and problem solving skills!
Our newest staff members Kate and Jayden are settling in with great relationships with children and families and implementing exciting new experiences and practices within our centre!
We celebrated ‘Reconciliation Week’ through Maureen’s telling of the Emu Egg story and the Rainbow Serpent, painting with branches, a Tiddalick the Frog puppet story, mapping our addresses on a directory, clay representations, bark painting and using children’s handprints to create their own Aboriginal Flag.
During experiences across the week, Educators discussed the meaning of reconciliation and how we should treat everyone with kindness and respect. What an exciting, educational and motivational term!
