A special mention to all our families who sent through their appreciation messages from home. On behalf of our whole team thank you 🙏
At Nido, children participated in multiple experiments throughout the week and developed their knowledge and understanding in science. They developed different dispositions of learning like curiosity, imagination, creativity, hypothesis, researching, and investigating. Few glimpse of the experiments they did.
There will love hearts for all families to write their words of appreciation available next week in our foyer for you to take home and write or draw your special messages.
Next week we are going to celebrate Book Week, which means each day you can dress up as your favorite or inspiring character from a book.

🖤💛❤️NAIDOC week 2023 ❤️💛🖤
This week the children engaged in experiences that built on their knowledge and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, experiences, and beliefs.
As a service we have spent the year considering how we can further embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture into our service. Our children engage in a daily ritual of acknowledging country.
As a part of NAIDOC week we have begun to reflect on how we as a community can further embed and develop an understanding of the traditional owners of the land in which we learn, play and grow. This has reignited our development of our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
☮️The Resilience Project ☮️
Our 4-Year-Old kinder program has been continuing to explore resilience with the support of The Resilience Project.
In our 4-year-old Kindergarten classroom the outstanding educators have been exploring strategies to develop gratitude and mindfulness. Some strategies included sensory experiences and creating sensory resources, reading books, creating a calm corner, and yoga sessions. They have also engaged in discussions and shared their own experiences to develop an understanding of empathy.
🦖Room Focus - Toddler 2🦖
The Toddler 2 children have been learning about dinosaurs!
Our fabulous educators have been supporting children's current observed interest of dinosaurs through some wonderful planned experiences.
The children have made dinosaur footprints just like archeologists and explored where they think the dinosaurs might have lived, and what they might have eaten.
We can't wait to see what else our amazing Toddler 2 room learn!
💬Room Focus- Toddler 1💬
The Toddler 1 classroom have been learning about early language and literacy skills. The wonderful educators have been reading books and sharing language to help support the children's communication skills.
The Toddler 1 children have explored colours, fruits, letters, and body parts. Learning has happened through amazing and engaging planned experiences that enhance children's learning about the use of language and early communication skills.
❤️Room Focus - Nursery❤️
Our Nursery educators have made a project our of developing motor skills through planned experiences and intentional teaching. Over the last few months educators have developed engaging experiences that encourage children to develop their fine and gross motor skills through play.
Educators have designed experiences such as ball rescue games, sensory paint bags, and group experiences that make motor development fun and exciting!
🌻International Yoga Day🌻
Yesterday was International Yoga Day! Yoga is an ancient art that refreshes the mind and soothes the soul. The day aims to encourage new people to adopt the yogi lifestyle and align with their inner chakra.
Nido Early School Wyndham Vale celebrated this day by taking time to do some yoga and align with our inner chakra.
“Learning is not a checklist of objectives or content-specific aims. Learning is a process demanding time for rich and meaningful reflection” (Mackenzie & Bathurst-Hunt, 2018, p. 4).
One goal of creating inquiry provocations at Nido Early School Wyndham Vale is to allow time for educators to interact with children as they begin to work through the inquiry process and to see the deep learning, wondering and questioning that comes from giving children time to interact with resources, provocations and their own interests. This helps educators with informative assessment; engaging in conversations with children as they construct knowledge; and assists educators develop individualized next steps for children.
World Refugee Day is an international day designated by the United Nations to honour refugees around the globe. It falls each year on 20 June and celebrates the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home country to escape conflict or persecution. Nido Early School Wyndham Vale acknowledges to all the refugees that make an important contribution to Australia in many areas including social engagement, workforce participation, business ownership and volunteering within our communities.
📈Room Focus- Kinder 3📉
The kinder 3 children have been focusing on the concept of cause and effect. Our amazing educators have been creating some interesting experiences that encourage children to consider inquiry question such as "why does this happen?" and "how can we create a different outcome?".
This is a fantastic opportunity for children to develop rational thinking, problem solving skills, and developing inquiry questions. These skills will be extremely beneficial in their school setting for 2024!
👣Room Focus- Kinder 2👣
Over the past few months Kinder 2 have been focusing on understanding their bodies, naming the different parts, and finding ways to care for their body.
To help children understand how to care for their body they discussed healthy eating, and engaged in physical experiences such as soccer games, yoga, and hurdle jumping. Children also took the time to use fun resources such as Mr. Potato Head to recognise parts of their face and our awesome demonstrative teeth to understand how brushing our teeth keeps them healthy.
Times have been tough for many families and individuals across Victoria - especially as the cold winter weather hits the state. To support families in need Nido Wyndham Vale is collecting canned food as part of our food drive for Foodbank Victoria. Help us support our community by donating long life goods and hygiene products for families in need at our service. We have set up our food collection point at the reception area so anyone from our community can come and donate.
🐝🌼Room Focus - Kinder 1🌼🐝
In the Kinder 1 classroom children have been inquiring about animals over the last few months. Children have been answering inquiry questions such as "what does this animal eat?" and "where does this animal live?".
As a service we scaffolded this interest by inviting Aussie Wildlife Displays into the service to introduce children to some Australian animals and learn about conservation efforts of zoos around the country to save our endangered species.
Kinder 1 educators are now looking into the conservation of bees as a classroom project. They are considering the current global concern over the reduction of bees in the wild across the world and are exploring ideas on how their classroom can support the growth of bee populations through developing homes, and providing safe food and water sources for bees.
Nido Early School Wyndham Vale would like to wish everyone a relaxing and safe long weekend. We would also like to remind everyone that our service will be closed on Monday and will reopen Tuesday.
Nido Early School Wyndham Vale children were super exited about their most awaited visit from Aussie Wildlife displays today. The children were introduced to a range of beautiful and unique Australian animals by Vince. This was an amazing opportunity for our service children to learn about animals what they eat, where they live and facts about their anatomy and revisit their thoughts of what they have been already learning in their classes. Some of the older kindergarten classes had the opportunity to hold the animals and everyone had the opportunity to pat them.
Thank you so much Vince for this wonderful experience!!

This coming Tuesday Nido Early School Wyndham Vale will be having a visit from lots of different native Australian animals!
Children in our toddler 2 and kinder 1 classrooms have been using project-based learning to explore different animals and their habitats. This project was developed by the Kinder 1 educators who recognized a budding interest in animals amongst the children and chose to scaffold from that interest. To continue to support this learning and appreciation for our wildlife we have welcomed Aussie Wildlife Displays into our service to teach us more about our native Australian animals and reptiles.
Aussie Wildlife Displays specialise in teaching children about native Australian animals with a focus on conservation and empowering children to care for and respect our unique native environment. We cant wait to see what kind of creatures they bring for us to meet!
This year Nido Early School Wyndham Vale are partnering with The Resilience Project (TRP) to deliver their 2023 Early Years Program. The Resilience Project offers emotionally engaging programs to schools and early years services– providing practical, evidence-based, positive mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness.

🎶🎵🪘Music and Stories from Africa🪘🥁🎵🎶
Thursday Nido Wyndham Vale had a visit from Sam from Ghana, Africa. ￼Sam brought beautiful hand made percussion instruments that he played for us. We learnt all about instruments such as the Shekere, Djembe, and the Talking Drums. This incursion was purposefully organised to align children’s current knowledge of the diverse cultures they are surrounded with and broaden their understanding of their world through music and dance. Our Kinder teachers have been engaging children in learning about different cultures around the world using Information and communication technology (ICT) recently and having Sam onboard talking about their traditions supported our children’s learning and comprehension.
The kindergarten children were excited to know all about Sams hats, bags, fabrics and drums. Inquiry questions were asked and answered such as “how did you make your hat?” And “did you make the drums too?”.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Sam for travelling all this way from Queensland to share his stories and music with us!
Changes to the Child Care Subsidy are coming...
From July 10, the Government changes are coming into effect which will support many families attending our Nido Early School Wyndham Vale receiving more Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
Also, some families previously not eligible for CCS entitlements, will now become eligible, due to the increase in the family income limit.
Broadly, changes are:
• The maximum amount of CCS is increasing from 85% to 90%.
• Families earning $80,000 or less will get a CCS rate of 90%.
• Families earning over $80,000 get a CCS rate that decreases by 1% for each $5,000 of family income. This rate reaches 0% for families earning $530,000.
• Families earning below $362,408 with more than one child aged 5 or under in care can still get a higher rate for their second and younger children.
Families can find out what their future rates may be using the CCS calculator:
or get more information at www.servicesaustralia.gov.au
Today was a very busy day at Nido Early School Wyndham Vale. We started our morning with the Biggest Morning Tea where our amazing community came together to raise funds for the cancer council.
We would to give a huge that’s to our community and for the Kinder 3 children for baking some very tasty muffins to be sold at our morning tea!
After morning tea we got a visit from the dentist! The children were able to get their 6 monthly check up. As always the Dentist2u team did a fantastic job at ensuring the children maintained a sense of comfort and safety while getting their teeth checked. This is alway a great program where children can develop a healthy relationship with dental care and visiting the dentist.
On the 25th of May Nido Wyndham Vale will be holding Australia's Biggest Morning Tea! This is a charity event held yearly by the Cancer Council to raise funds for research into fighting cancer.
We will be holding the morning tea just at our doorway where families will be offered a range of drinks and food items for a gold coin donation. Nido Wyndham Vale children and educators will be participating in the preparations for this morning tea and helping us fight cancer.
Last week Nido Early School Wyndham Vale held our annual Mothers Day Morning Tea! Our amazing chef Manisha, with the help of Harpreet, created a beautiful breakfast consisting of croissants, fruit and cheese platters, wraps, and coconut balls. It was such a beautiful morning where families are able to connect and share breakfast before starting the day.
We hope that all of our Nido mums were pampered this weekend!
Start of this year,Nido Early School Wyndham Vale provided new menu to ensure our children are getting healthy and nutritious meals. Learning where food comes from, how to measure ingredients and make healthy choices is an integral part of what we offer to our children.
Our menus, all being of the highest quality whole foods and not containing any processed sugars, are developed by nourished beginnings, find them on https://www.nourishedbeginnings.org/ We also welcome feedback from both families and our children about their favourites, or what they would like to eat.

Today Nido Early School Wyndham Vale started a yearly ritual of recognizing educators years of service in the Nido family. Our service has been always acknowledging our educators for their hard work and dedication through our Wellbeing Wednesdays to thank them for all that they do everyday. This morning we indulged our service educators with some extra sweet treats to celebrate the amazing occasion to ensure they feel acknowledged and recognized. We thank them for being a part of our Nido family.
You may notice our educators wearing a pin to symbolize their years of service.
🧡 Harmony Week Celebrations 🧡
Nido Wyndhamvale proudly celebrated Harmony week with children this week to ensure children learn about Australia’s multiculturalism. Educators and children wear their traditional/cultural clothing in celebration this week. Children participated in parade to show their cultural/ traditional outfits and orange clothing. Over the week they also participated in different learning experiences that enhanced their knowledge and broaden their understanding of knowing about the different cultures people belong to. Nido Early School Wyndham Vale’s cultural diversity is one of the greatest strengths and is at the heart of who we are. We will always embrace the cultural diversity we have at our service and consider ourselves to be fortunate to have representatives from all around the world.
As Nido Wyndham Vale follows REGGIO EMILIA philosophy and considers the environment as a third teacher. Therefore, our learning environments meaningfully set up are a great tool the children utilise to learn different skills. Though our Quality Improvement Plan we have been working towards building beautiful and meaningful environments that help us teach and support our children. We believe that this has become one of our strengths as our wonderful educators strive to build learning environments based on children’s individual interests and goals for learning. Children use their 100 languages such as crying, gargling, drawing, music, movement, and many more to tell us what they think and how they feel whilst exploring and investigating their learning environments. We work every day to listen to their voices and communicate with children to achieve their learning goals.
Nido wyndhamvale celebrated Holi, the festival of colours with children and educators yesterday. We used dry coloured powder with children for sensory, joy and playful experience with them. Happy Holi to everyone 😊
Holi is a festival which marks the last full-moon day of the lunar month celebrates the beginning of spring and the victory of good over evil. People celebrate this day by smearing bright colours on friends and family, offering prayers and burning a bonfire to symbolically destroy the bad so that the good can triumph.
Nido wyndhamvale is extremely excited and happy to advise that this month we went through our service's first assessment and rating by department, and we are Meeting all seven National quality standards. Thank you to all our dedicated educators, our Nido families and wider community for all your support ☺️
How beautiful it is to receive appreciation and acknowledgement of the work we do at Nido Early School wyndhamvale by our community. Our service prides in itself to have such great relationships with our families and wider communities. A token of love and appreciation from them boosts our educators morale's and pumps them to work harder and achieve for the best outcome of all our children in care. Thank you to all who appreciate, support and provide their valuable input in the best interest of making our service grow.
A free online workshop that will provide information about
where to start and what you need to support your
child who have developmental delay or disability. Parent mental health is crucial to a child’s journey to inclusion, so this is a little tool to get that support from.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas !!
With🎄Christmas just around the corner, we want to remind families that we are open throughout the Christmas period, only closing on the Public Holidays!
At Nido wyndhamvale, our educators aim to extend on children's interest through music and movement as well as singing their favourite songs. With exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words and enhance their social skills.
National Recycling Week ♻️, established by Planet Ark in 1996, is held every year during the second week of November (7th to 13th of November 2022).
At Nido wyndhamvale, children are participating in their ongoing practices of using recycling materials for their learning experiences to celebrate National Recycling Week ♻️. Caring for environment and utilizing used paper for cutting aiming to enhance their fine motor skills, further asking our chef for empty milk bottles and cartons for multiple art and craft projects all lead the children to develop their understanding in reusing and recycling materials and care for the environment. It also encourages children to be responsible and show a growing appreciation for Earth.
Learning about recycling in Nido Early School Wyndham Vale means that children are more likely to adopt it as a habit, helping to make them conscientious adults.
Halloween on October 31 is undoubtedly the creepiest, most ghostly holiday of all. Nido Wyndhamvale children and educators had super fun and joy participating in Halloween experiences throughout the day today with lots of humour and happiness shared between each other. Nido Wyndhamvale would like to wish everyone a fun filled Happy Halloween 😃🤩🎃🎃
"Stimulating your child's brain during early years and providing situations where they can explore helps them to learn things that get them in touch with their environment" -Robert Myers.
At Nido Wyndhamvale, our nursery educators ensure that they provide hands on fun filled learning experiences everyday for our babies, so they develop new connections in their brain through sensory play. These learning experiences support them to learn more about the world around them and guides language development as they learn to respond to different stimuli.
At Nido Wyndhamvale, children had been continuously provided with ample opportunities to develop their emotional and mental well-being with lots of group yoga sessions and mindfulness sessions everyday!
The theme of World Mental Health Day this year is ensuring mental health and wellbeing for all becomes a global priority, and it starts with focussing on and prioritising our own mental health. Nido Wyndhamvale emphasises this day to be a prompt for all of us to reignite our efforts to protect and improve our mental health. Not only this particular day, but every day in today's life :)
At Nido Wyndhamvale, we focus on sensory-rich experiences that enable children to explore and develop their mathematical, science, and literacy and comprehension skills – all of which are crucial in their educational journey. These experiences are beneficial for children as they will come to associate the concepts that they’ve been taught (such as counting and reading), with their own real-life experience to form a stronger connection and understanding between these concepts.
Stirring, measuring, rolling, squeezing and spreading are just a few of the kitchen tasks that allow young children to develop their fine motor and hand-eye coordination skills.
At Wyndhamvale, we strive to provide children with more cooking experiences allowing them opportunities to develop their sensory skills, build their self-confidence and lay the foundation for healthy eating habits.
As you will be aware COVID restrictions continue to ease for us all this week which is great news. We still have a number of restrictions in place at the centre which enables us to provide the safest possible environment for our children, families and team members.
As part of the changing restrictions, the Victorian Government now requires everyone entering the centre to sign in using a QR code. This is mandatory for all families when dropping off and picking up children. There will be a poster on the reception desk displaying the code as you enter the centre so please remember to do this each time you visit and be mindful of social distancing with other adults in the process.
The only people who do not need to use the QR Code to scan in are children and centre staff who are signed into our system.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
