Infant Toddler

 During April the children of the infant toddler room made some wonderful art that is currently on display on the board and classroom. The children continued to learn about sharing and turn taking during their circle times with songs and movement. And since April brought unseasonably warm weather the children were able to enjoy the surrounding parks for some Vitamin D.

May's theme is Spring. Children will be learning about flowers and bugs through music, arts and outdoor play. They will make crafts for Mother’s Day. Also during May, the children can look forward to more outings and entertaining circles.

  Daycare Montessori

 April was a busy and wonderful month. The children got outside as much as the weather would allow to explore the surrounding parks and trails. While on some of the outings the children got to learn about nature and the importance of conserving the environment. The children celebrated Earth day by discussing ways they can help the environment and went out to hug some trees.  The children are also looking forward to bringing home all the art and craft to wish MUMS a very happy Mother’s Day.

During April the children learnt the letters S, T, U, V, and W. Now May will bring the end of the Fun Family Phonics with X, Y, and Zed.  Some suggestions for show and tell Wednesday's include:

 X-x-Ray, xylophone
Y-yellow, yarn, yolk
Z-zebra, zoo, zigzag

As well during May the Montessori children will be learning about weather, and making some wonderful experiments that will help them have a hands on demonstration about weather around the world.


  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 good start for the day both for the staff and the children.
