 THURSDAY 14 JUNE 2018 – 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.

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 -  During May we continued the theme of Spring , talking more about flowers and plants which grow around this time of the year -. The classroom board displayed the work children did. We also celebrated Mother’s Day with gifts and crafts going home.

In June we will continue to talk about Spring and the animals we see around this time of the year. We will be celebrating Father’s Day  - watch out for special cards and crafts coming home . At the same time we will be talking about families.

Daycare Montessori

In May we expanded on theme of Space and Planets which now completed. We als  sent home Mother’s  Day cards which children made in the classroom.

In June we will be making crafts for Father’s Day which will be coming home over the next few days.

As the Montessori program comes to end, in June, we will have a GRADUATION DAY on WEDNESDAY 20th JUNE 2018 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. Also please see the teachers to go over your child’s folder with all their work during the year. Children are hard at work practising for Graduation Day.

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.

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.
