Exploring our sense of identity is an important aspect of our development.
The children have begun investigating different aspects of themselves such as the colour of their hair, lips, eyes, and skin colour.
Using our new ‘colours of the world’ pencils and crayons the children were able to actively acknowledge the colour of their skin, and translate that onto paper.
The group discussed the differences between us all, many of the children noticing the colour of their hair in relation to their friends.
Some children have brown hair, some orange, some yellow, and some black!

• White Balloon Day •

Bravehearts' White Balloon Day is Australia's largest campaign dedicated to child protection. Each year Bravehearts' White Balloon Day unites communities and makes a commitment to protecting Aussie kids.

Our team thought about what is important to them when thinking about child protection and created some ‘I Will’ statements to share with the community.

A big thank you to our big and little Geniuses!

Today marks RUOK? Day, a chance to check in with loved ones, both little and big, and ask: “Are you really OK?”

As parents, it’s only natural to want to see your child upbeat and happy all the time but it’s also normal to feel a little sad or lonely from time to time too. So, what do you do when you notice a change in their mood? Read our blog on where to start: https://bit.ly/3DYC7Rz

Today is R U ok day. It is important to acknowledge life's ups and downs. To start the conversation our team chose a balloon with a resonating meme and wrote their affirmation on it. We hope you take something from our words.

Child Protection Week &
White Balloon Day

During child protection week the children have participated in learning around what it means to feel safe.
They discussed what it means to protect someone, and from this they made a mind map where they connected their thoughts to the original question.

The children explored white balloon day through creating their own pictures inspired by what was discussed.
The children related their artworks to who they trust. Some children wrote their parents and siblings names on the paper to connect their art to their most trusted people. Other children drew their families in the balloon and described who they all were.

Sometimes it won’t be obvious that someone is struggling, but having the support of family, friends and educators can help us better navigate the challenges that come our way.

• Nutritional Ninja program •

In the Woodlands room the children enjoy participating in the Nutritional Ninja program, today they helped make Cacao and Coconut Balls.

The group discussed proper hygiene and the do’s and don’t’s when it comes to cooking for others. The children washed their hands and made sure to wash under their fingernails and in between their fingers before touching the ingredients.

The children even recognised their breathing on the food as unhygienic and tried to breath in other directions and out of their noses to avoid breathing directly on the food.

•Mixed Age Play•

Mixed age play has great potential to support children's social and emotional learning.

This type of play encourages children to build strong bonds with others not of their own age (much like how older and younger siblings interact).

It teaches peer-to-peer interactions as children observe and learn from their peers in a different way they will observing and watching adults.

This is one of the reasons we love our shared outdoor space, where we can observe different age groups interacting, and above all, learning from one another!
