MONDAY 12 FEBRUARY 2018 : BC FAMILY DAY – CENTRE CLOSED (reopens Tuesday 13 Feb 2018)





Infant Toddler

In January the theme was Winter. To this end, the children worked with weather, colours, numbers of the winter through songs(rhymes), games, books and art.

During this upcoming month the theme will continue to be Friendship and Family – celebrating BC Family day through some art and craft   and have play activities that concentrate on traits of good friends like sharing and turn taking. The children will make some Valentine’s Day artwork – look out for the display board in the classrooms.

Children will also learn about Chinese new year through books and pictures -  once again watch out for boards in classrooms displaying childrens’ work

Daycare Montessori

In January, WINTER was our major theme , please encourage your child to share with you what they have learnt in the classroom and also introduced the family phonics program.


February is going to be a busy month :

1. We will talk about the Chinese New Year – Year of the DOG as displayed in the classroom.

2. We will make Valentine cards and Valentine decorations for our class; look out for the cards coming home!

3. We will also continue this year’s theme 'all about me and my friends’ –   recognizing and respecting different cultures and values and celebrating BC Family Day .


As well we continue the Fun Family Phonics- we are   progressing quite well with the alphabet. The teacher will advise the children as to the weekly show and tell items on Wednesdays. With this , the children will also be introduced to writing skills and practice.

We will continue to work on the following class rules at the outset and parents please help us by encouraging the same at home.



1. Please ensure your child has indoor shoes which they change into when they arrive at the Centre and which stay at the Centre when leaving.

2. Please have a change of clothes at the Centre , in case they are needed.

3. Please label all you food containers and let us know if any food needs to be heated (note also: as you are aware, ours is  a ‘NUT-FREE’ Centre.)

4. Please arrive on time especially if your child is attending the Montessori – this helps keep disruption to the minimum.

5. Please inform us immediately if there are any changes eg address, telephone, contacts.

6. Please ensure you look at your child’s cubby when you are leaving and take home their work etc.

7. Please inform us as early as possible (by 9am – would be great) if your child is not attending the Centre that day.

8. May we also suggest that you drop-off your child and leave soon thereafter. This makes the transition much easier and                                          conducive to a good start to the day, both for the staff and the children.

As is becoming common practice generally, the Centre is also moving towards a policy of NOT warming food using a microwave .  We would like to request parents to provide food which does not require warming or alternatively provide warm food in thermos containers. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
