Visiting Estia Health Villiage

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Every second Monday we take a small group of preschool children to visit a group of residents at the Dalmeny Estia Retirement Village. Steve picks us up in the bus and brings us back to preschool which is a wonderful part of our morning visit for the children. When we get to Estia our friends are very keen to spend time with the children. We share a small part of our day with our new friends. The children play board games, draw, build with construction sets, sing dance and read stories. The most important part of our session is that the children are just being in the moment with the residents and the residents beam with joy at the children being children and allowing them to share in their day.

This year we once again held our annual Mad Scientist Evening and as usual it was a real hit with our families. The night was filled with wild science fun, mess and laughter! It was a joy to be part of such a wonderful evening. Next year we will be able to roast our marshmallows around our family meeting place firepit! Our dad’s always end up outdoors so next year we will take them outdoors.

In Term 3 we had an incursion from the Fish Finders! They came to our preschool and talked to the children about our local water ways and how to care for them and the creatures who live in them. The children also learnt how to do the ‘pipi’ dance to the lastest dance song ‘Baby Shark! Next the children raced fresh water yabbi’s and Lightening won the day. This was a wonderful morning of learning, interaction and fun. Thank you Fish Finders and our host Jason.

Parent Evening : Nurturing Boys

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

On Wednesday evening of the 22nd of May, 2019 we invited parents and carers to an information event around the topic of ‘Nurturing Boys’. The evening was a wonderful opportunity for parents and carers to come together and share concerns and the joys of nurturing their boys. It was also a time to gain new insight to support parenting skills, strategies and knowledge.

Getting Ready for School

Dear Families, Just a friendly reminder that this event is coming up.

Be Ready Roadshow Starting School 2020

We have after consultation, developed a new format for the Starting School Expo which means we bring a road show to you, making it easier to attend in your area and with minimal set up. The road show will come to 3 locations across the Eurobodalla in March 2019.

Narooma Wednesday 27, Batemans Bay Thursday 28, Moruya Friday 29, of March, 6.00 – 8.00pm at the local libraries.

Research on transitioning to school, shows the more community engagement the greater the overall outcomes for families. It’s an opportunity to promote your service and support the success of children starting school in the Eurobodalla.

All you have to do is come along with information about your school/service and talk to parents about what you have to offer and what they need to consider with their child starting school.

There will be an expert panel to give parents an opportunity to hear from a variety of knowledgeable people about school readiness. Dr Kristy Goodwin will be on the panel in Batemans Bay and Moruya. Dr Kristy is a children’s technology and development expert, speaker, and author on raising healthy happy kids in a digital age.  It is hoped that with thoughtful discussion and question/answer time, we as a community will support successful outcomes for families of future kindergarteners. Dr Kristy has suggested that she could also do some professional learning for educators,(she is a NESA-endorsed provider) during this visit and we have already covered the logistics cost to have her come to the area so you would be only have to cover her cost for your session. How fantastic would that be to have her at your centre, one on one with your staff.
