Operating as usual


If you haven’t heard already this week is NAIDOC week!

This years theme is - GET UP, STAND UP, SHOW UP!

“What is NAIDOC Week? NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.”

One of the first things your can learn is… what country do I work/live on? And for us at Rainbow Town it’s the Kombumerri Country!

Want to know more?? Ask our educators what we will be exploring this week! 🔴🟡⚫️

Happy NAIDOC Week❤️💛🖤
Here on the Gold Coast we are celebrating on Kombumerri Country!

From interest to intentional teaching moments! 🙌🏻

Educators supported the children in exploring their very important role of taking care of our environment!

The children engaged in real-life play whilst developing our ever important fine-motor skills with tongs to collect the litter in the “ocean.”

Educators took this opportunity to scaffold a deeper understanding of marine life, how we can care for them and what to do with litter through meaningful conversations.



At its heart, reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.—Reconciliation Australia Wingaru Education

We hope everyone had a happy and safe long weekend and were ready to take on the world today!
Did the Easter Bunny visit your family? 🐰

Did you know there is lots of ways to use your child’s Easter eggs as a play based learning experience?
🐰 Sorting and categorising eggs in to size, colour and pattern etc.
🐰 1:1 correspondence counting
🐰 Addition and subtraction e.g “How many do you have after you share 2 with me?”
🐰Reusing and recycling the foil through art and craft!
🐰 Adding chocolate to baking and cooking experiences!

Here are some pics of our Easter Egg hunt on Thursday! We were so lucky for the Easter bunny to find us at Rainbow Town!

Not one but two caterpillars!
This morning we were excited to discover that there were 2 caterpillars left to munch on the leaves over the weekend!

Throughout the morning, the Kagaru children noticed that one of the caterpillars was making a cocoon! The children began to watch the cocoon form throughout the day.

On Tuesday we observed the other caterpillar changing shape. Educators encouraged investigation and predictive thinking as to what might be happening?

👀 Keep an eye out to see what happens next...


Are you excited about the long weekend?
Just a reminder that we are closed Good Friday and Easter Monday, opening back up for Tuesday!

Recently the Kagaru/Kindy room have been exploring animals and their life cycles.

To continue diving into this exciting subject, Miss Rachael was kind enough to bring in her guinea pigs from home! The children were excited to experience hands on learning in a safe and respectful environment.

Developing deeper relationships with animals provides the children with opportunities to build more care, empathy and respect towards others!

This is how we celebrated Harmony Day/week in the Pingin room! 🐢

The children had many opportunities to explore the true meaning of Harmony Day through independent and educator led experiences 🧡

We invited all our friends for a story called “Whoever you are” each day, as we took a look into the different ways people live around the world!
Educators provided the children with an array of books from different cultures, Moss E was excited to read a Chinese book all about counting!

The children were also given the chance to explore Harmony week through music and movement! Educators showcased music from all around the world! We loved listening and watching the music and movement that came from the children after, being inspired by the multicultural songs!

Thank you so much to our families who helped us celebrate Harmony Week! Look how awesome Mr R looks with his orange hair!! We really love seeing families get involved!

How did you celebrate Harmony Day? 🧡



Your child’s play is important work, not a mess!

Be mindful of the language you use when referencing the remnants of your child's play and creativity. What might look like chaos or a "mess" to you represents an intricate process of learning, developing, decision making, problem solving, imagination, and creativity.⁣

Use the opportunities that present themselves in these messy moments to observe what your child is showing you that they are interested in and what they have learned.⁣

Find things inside their play and creativity to document, take photos of, display on the walls, and celebrate together.⁣

Clean up together when they are ready to be done with what they've been working on (security of unfinished projects is so important to a child). Above all, try not to use words or phrases like "what a mess," "look at this mess," etc. ⁣

Your language affects how your child views their most important work. Changing your own mindset around this will be the best way to make those shifts. 💚

Reflecting back to National Reconciliation Week, where one of our Pre-Kindy friends stood proudly in front of his peers and passed on previously leant knowledge about the Aboriginal flag!

"My shirt has the Aboriginal peoples flag, this is the land, this is the sky and this bit is all my friends."
