June 2017


SUNDAY - 18 JUNE 2017                        GRADUATION DAY - WED 21 JUNE 2017 – 5PM              


WELCOME to TOVA and family who have joined us this month. We are sure that you will have a wonderful time at the Centre and please let us know if any issues arise so can we resolve them as soon as possible.





SATURDAY 25 JUNE 2017 – EID AL-FITR (Muslims celebrating the end of the month of Ramadan)



Please let us know of your plans during the coming months eg vacation etc so that we may plan accordingly. There is a board at the sign-in desk where you can put down the details.

Please remember if you have not brought it in yet ,  Comfort Kits are due in as soon as possible.




Infant and Toddler

In May the theme was Spring and all that it brings – bugs , flowers , showers  and and the children enjoyed the outdoors as much as possible. The children also made crafts and gifts which went home for Mother’s Day.

For June please ensure that your child has sunscreen, hat and appropriate footwear that can be left at the centre for outside days.

In addition , watch out for Father’s Day gifts and cards making their way home for you to enjoy with your child. Also keep an eye on the poster board in each room which reflects the month’s activities.


Daycare Montessori

In May the children learnt about the four sesaons and related topics. We also made Mother’s day cards and gifts which went home.

As the Montessori program comes to end, in June, we will have a GRADUATION DAY on WEDNESDAY 21st JUNE 2017 at 5 PM ,with a ‘pot-luck’ event to conclude the ceremony. There is a sheet near the sign-in board for parents to register their ‘pot-luck’ item for the after- graduation celebration. The children are practising hard for Graduation Day activities – please come and see them perform and graduate.

For June children should bring in sunscreen, a hat and appropriate footwear for walking to and playing at the surrounding parks.

Also the theme for June will be UNDER THE SEA – watch out for the poster board and arts and crafts coming home reflecting this exciting topic.

We will also continue this year’s theme 'all about me and my friends’ – recognizing and respecting different cultures and values especially with Father’s Day in mind.

Wednesdays will be show and tell during the course of the month.



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 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.
