Are you guys collecting the woolworths earn and learn stickers?
I stumbled across this today - eye opening quiz, great idea for a book, and if the centre thought it appropriate it appears the writers do incursions. I'm sure I'm not alone in being concerned for our kids safety.
Here's a great app for kids- something the educators might be able to use on the iPads with the kids, or something parents might enjoy having to play at home:

World Ocean Day and World Environment Day has seen so many learning opportunities across our center this week. Every room has been exploring and learning to understand more about our environment. We need to ensure children have the opportunity to learn and discover how our planet works and what we need to do to look after it.

Just some of the activities have included;
-Making Bird Feeders and Bird Houses
-Learning about our ocean and how to look after it.
-What can we recycle and reuse.
-How to look after our ocean and our water animals.

Children have ability to share, communicate, discover and explore so many experiences and learn about our Planet. Well done to all of our amazing educators for showcasing what we do within our center and how we can look after our future.

Does your child need some help to regulate their emotions?

Try these great exercises - super fun and easy, incorporating animal awareness at the same time.

Remember to make it fun and not a chore!

Our little people need help to express their emotions and feelings and you can be there for them this easily.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Here are some of the center wide activities the children have been participating in this week so far. It is so important for our children to understand the importance of Australia's First People and that we all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.

Some awesome learning happening in our Toddlers Room this week.

Developing skills in curiosity, creativity and problem solving will enhance wonder and interest in their environment, as well as beginning the relationship between recognizing patterns.

The children will also be able to engage in social relationships with their peers while playing at these spaces through conversations and play based learning. Implementing literacy with added books or songs as posters are a great prompt for some extensive conversations.

Asking them questions like "How many can you see?" "What color is this fish?" "Which pebble goes in the red bowl?" Are great ways to prompt learning in the Toddlers.

What great experiences for the Toddlers children to participate in.

Kids and their parents talk about childcare & early learning

The size of a child’s brain reaches 90% of an adult’s by the age of five.

Which is why the first five years are so important! Singing, reading, making friends - these are all of the things that help a child’s development.

Watch this gorgeous video by Thrive by Five to find out how a high quality, universally accessible and affordable early learning and childcare system is the key for ensuring every child can Thrive by Five.

Every child who participated in National Simultaneous Storytime today received this little certificate. 📚

The children enjoyed listening to the story be read directly from the International Space Station on YouTube or by one of our Educators. 🚀

This has sparked a big interest in space, which is going to enrich and extend on our learning! ⭐️

It is so important to engage with children and literacy every single day and how amazing was it to read all together this fantastic book.

Happy 11th birthday Goodstart!

What’s your birthday message for us? Let us know in the comments!

11 years on and Goodstart is a strong and dedicated social enterprise working towards better outcomes for all Australia’s children.

Over the past decade we’ve been passionate about shifting the narrative around the importance of the early years, of access for all children and continuing to drive quality practice across our national network.

We’ve:
- Supported more than half a million children with high quality early learning and care
- Supported more than 1,500 children experiencing disadvantage with fee relief through our Early Learning Fund
- Introduced fee-free public holidays for families attending our centres
- Launched [email protected] during the height of the pandemic in 2020 to provide evidence-based at home learning support and materials for more than 26,000 families nation-wide
- Invested $45.9 million in social inclusion to enhance school and life outcomes for Australia's most vulnerable children.

We know many of this isn’t possible without the support of our founding partners The Benevolent Society, Mission Australia, Social Ventures Australia, Brotherhood of St Laurence, our families and our wonderful Goodstarters past and present.

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an annual event that aims to engage children of all ages to enjoy books by creating a sense of excitement around reading. Reading ignites a spark of adventure that a child can carry within their heart well into their adult life.

This year, join us on an intergalactic adventure thanks to ALIA and Story Time From Space. For the first time ever, not only will the official story for National Simultaneous Storytime be read by over 1 MILLION kids across Australia and New Zealand on Wednesday 19th May 2021, but it will also be read by astronauts from the International Space Station!

We will be reading, will you?

Earth Day was celebrated last week and our terrific toddler team were eager to get straight into the learning.
The Toddlers love rain and jumping in muddy puddles. So we asked "How do we get rain?"
Educators showed the water cycle diagram and explained how the clouds form and rain is created. These discussions lead to an experiment, a great way to explore weather, extending the learning about clouds and to get the children thinking about how and why it rains.
We spread a layer of shaving cream on top of a water jar to represent the cloud. Then we squirted a few drops of blue food coloring around the top and sides of the shaving cream cloud. The food color slowly started to leak through the cloud, which looks like rain coming through the clouds.
This science experiment promotes scientific thinking, predictions, observations, reasoning data gathering and evaluation while making connections with real life experiences. Children learn to concentrate and use descriptive words to express ideas and opinions

Making sustainable choices around your rubbish and where it ends up is so important.
We’ve added a Soft Plastic Bin in the front gated area for our families and our centre to use to recycle properly ♻️
We want to protect our beaches, rivers and parks the best way we can and by doing this little gesture we hope we can help in a small way.

Our Earth is so important - especially for the future of the children that attend with us at Sherwood Road.

To spread awareness and continue to learn about our World, children in the Three Year Old Kinder have been doing experiments, having discussions and watching educational videos surrounding Earth Day.

Earth Day is April 22nd and we wanted to really get in touch with what we need to know or do to improve the future of our Planet Earth.

Some things we've been talking about;
-Clouds, what do they look like, what should they feel like?
-Ice experiments, how does it melt, why do they melt?
-Rubbish, where does it go? How can we do this better?

So much learning going on to make sure our Earth stays safe and looked after. :)

We found this little guy in the carpark this morning at approximately 910am. We believe he is likely someone's pet, and appeared slightly injured. We have taken him to the Greencross Vet in Narre Warren (430 Princess Hwy, Narre Warren) 03 9709 8222. Please share so that he can be reunited with his owner.
