Our February Blog is Here..
Wow, I can’t believe it is already February! Where has the time gone!!
What a busy and fun few month we have had here at Leap Start. We have seen many new children start, who we have loved getting to know and we introduced the ducks as new family members to the centre, Daisy and Ziggy whom the children have welcomed into the centre with open arms and they are always learning new skills in how to care for living things.
We hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Here at Leap Start the New Year can be a sad time for us as we say Goodbye to our children going off to school some starting in Kindy and other full time school in Pre-Primary. Some of these children have been with us since our youngest Nursery room Harmony and we have formed such wonderful bonds with them and watched them grow up, other we may have only had for a shirt period of time, but they always have a special place with us here at Leap Start.
Although we may say goodbye to some of our families, we welcome so many new families to Leap Start and get to form new relationships with these children. We have families from all different cultures starting with us and as educators we are then exposed to so many different opportunities to learn something new and celebrate other cultural traditions.
Our amazing community garden is absolutely thriving out the front to the centre, as you pull into the car park you can see the bright red tomatoes growing all over the plants. Some of the children have had the opportunity to go and pick some of the veggies that are out the front and give them to Noelle in the kitchen so that she can add it into her cooking. When passing by our families are always welcome to pick something from our community garden.
