Organising our own games

Our children are particularly good at organising themselves. In this instance they have accessed a memory game and organised themselves to play ... complete with rules. Awesome guys.

Friends swing together

We really do have the best block builders

We often sing the praises of our block builders ... and this is why. They build with such enthusiasm. If their building topples ... they just build it up again. In the process they are experimenting with shape and design. They are learning about foundations, balance and possibilities. What a great team of builders.

The Hotrod, written, narrated and directed by Simon

Simon spends his days at kindergarten creating ... and this hotrod is just one of his creations. As he talked about the adventures of his hotrod we discussed the possibility of telling the adventure story on film. This is the result.

Dinosaur role play

There has been a resurgence of dinosaur play in our afternoon session thanks to Dylan and his dinosaur knowledge. He is certainly to go to person for anything information pertaining to dinosaurs.

A study in floral arrangement

The children love to spend their time creating their own floral arrangements. It appears to be so therapeutic whether working together or on your own

Taking Franklin for a walk

One of our favourite activities is taking our red eared turtle Franklin for a walk. Notice how intently the children observe him.

A rescreening of Ryan's Ghost Buster movie

Sadly Friday was Ryan's last day at kindergarten ... so we just had to rescreen his much loved Ghost buster movie. With so many of our children featuring in the movie it was exciting viewing for all. What a fabulous contribution this was to our kindergarten programme. Thanks Ryan.
