July 2018





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.

This time of the year, children should bring in sunscreen, a hat and appropriate footwear for walking to and playing at the surrounding parks. We will be taking optimum advantage of the good weather we get.


Infant Toddler - 

 We celebrated Father’s Day  - hope you enjoyed the Father’s Day card and craft which the children made for you.

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.

We will continue our theme about ‘summer animals and surroundings’.

Daycare Montessori

In June we made making crafts for Father’s Day – hope you liked all the hard work children put on to making these.

Congratulations to the class of 2018 !
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. Pictures can be seen on our facebook page- thank you to all the parents for their comments.

This summer the children will be busy with different activities each day hiking, picnics , water days when practical.
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 . Every week the children will also be involved in an activity eg baking , science activity, exploring nature etc.

Please try and give non-warm up lunches for our days out and picnics at the park.

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

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

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.
