July 2016


Summer's here and we are looking forward to an exciting time at the Centre. While keeping this in mind, the best way to get your child ready for summer at the Centre is to ensure that your child has a water bottle that can be left at the centre, a hat, sunscreen, a change of clothes or bathing suit for water days, and appropriate footwear for walking and playing at the park. We would like to encourage you to apply sunscreen before you come to the Centre.



Infant Toddler

In June the children made a card and gift for Fathers. They had lots of fun making these and we are hoping that you enjoyed them too.

The children in the infant toddler room will be having a busy summer ahead of them doing some wonderful summer themed art and activities. The children will enjoy the sunny days playing at the surrounding parks as well as joining in the fun at Water-days! to cool off  from the hot summer sun.

Daycare Montessori

Congratulations to the class of 2016!
Thank you to all the parents who contributed and attended the Graduation, the children put a lot of effort in preparation and it was wonderful for you all to be there.

Also in July the children made wonderful cards and gifts for Father’s Day which came home to you. We all hope you liked your gifts and enjoyed the day.

This summer the children will be busy with different activities each day hiking, picnics , water days , cooking creations,
Beyond our busy summer plans the children will also be making some fantastic themed artwork that parents can check out on the walls of the classroom . Please try and give non-warm up lunches for our days out and picnics at the park.


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.
