Today our kinder children received their first book as part of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
‘Jack and Mia’ by Robert VESCIO is a book which takes you on an adventure into the minds of two little people and their friendship which travels across oceans.
We look forward to developing our children’s literacy skills on this unique way throughout the 2021 year.
Our weekly Hey Dee Ho session with the amazing Belinda. Every room has a music lesson every Friday. #music #earlychildhoodeducation #koolkidzmillpark
Last week we held our annual Maths Night in both of our kinder rooms where we brought together our families, children and educators to engage in various mathematical activities.
When children are exposed to mathematics learning during childhood and kindergarten their future success increases dramatically, setting them up for a love of lifelong maths learning.
Throughout the night the children engaged in various activities including roll and cover, making play-dough, bead threading, stick measuring, race to ten and 3D and 2d shape construct. These activities promote critical maths learning strategies including number sense, mathematisation and measurement.
As educators and parents come together on this special night it proves to be a great opportunity to show how maths learning can be incorporated when out and about either at the shops, in the environment or in the home.
Mathematics learning is all around us! Certain qualities are nurtured by mathematics including power of reasoning, creativity, abstract or spatial thinking, critical thinking, problem-solving ability and even effective communication skills.
Thank you to the parents and children of kindergarten 2 for participating in our special night of maths learning.
A massive heartfelt Thankyou to the stall holders who came last night and to those of you who attended and brought from these small local businesses. Even the lovely ladies who came all the way from Craigieburn.

On Friday we celebrated our 5th birthday 🥳 with a party.
We had an amazing birthday cake made by Room for Sweets and all the children came together to sing happy birthday.
We also had an animal farm with Kevin coming with his farmyard friends from Leigh's Farmyard Friends.
We had some amazing face painting by the fabulous Biljana from @Bibis-Face-Art
And finally we finished the day with a Twilight Market and Art Exhibition with an amazing sunset 🌅 over Kool Kidz
We want to thank all of our families and educators who have made Kool Kidz Mill Park a home away from home where all children a loved and cared for as if they were the educators children. As the owner of Kool Kidz, I love to come to work each and every day and see all of the parents and children and the big smiles on their faces. I feel I have achieved exactly what I set out to 5 years ago. And to be able to continue to provide permanent employment to nearly 50 local people and continue to be the only early learning centre in the north who does not employ casual staff, I love this stability for my families and staff.
Thankyou from the bottom of my heart and I look forward to many more years of watching the children grow to eventually head off to primary school. 🙏 😊

Each week our 3 year old kinder children go on their Bush Kinder excursion. We rotate our days to ensure that each and every child has a turn to attend Bush Kinder.
On Friday our children went on their Bush Kinder excursion and whilst walking to the site, the children identified many different objects including Kangaroo’s 🦘, 🚗 , planes ✈️ , traffic lights and flowers 🌸 .
Once they got to the site, they sat down and listened to Jane reading a book called ‘What Makes a Rainbow’ 🌈 as the children recently found a rainbow out in the yard at Kool Kidz. The children were able to identify each colour of the rainbow.
After they read the book they took a walk around the site and using their Bush Kinder Colour Chart they collected materials from nature such as leaves, grass, flowers💐, bark, rocks and feathers 🪶 and tried matching up the colours.
We take a holistic approach to our children’s learning, ensuring every opportunity to teach the children is captured.

Happy International Women’s Day to all of our amazing educators, teachers, parents, grandparents and carers. 🙏
At Kool Kidz Mill Park our philosophy revolves around developing the whole self in every child including literacy, numeracy, self help skills and social amd emotional development.
We have engaged Shining Minds to deliver mindfulness sessions to our 3 and 4 year old kinder classes in support of our philosophy.
At the start of this weeks session, the Shining Minds team had the children dancing to shake their sillies out.
They then read a book about how the children can be a good friend and by how they can calm down when angry, how it is ok to be mad but not to be mean to their friends. They also spoke about things we like, how we can share, how we can smile at our friends and give them a hi-five 🙋
They then played a game of when the music stopped we had to land on one of the pictures on the floor such as when asked where the hugging picture was everyone had to find it and stand on it or smiling picture, hi five or sharing picture and did the action for it.
The children were shown how to share with their friends. Ashton and Zoe shared a music shaker and Chiptoe and Luca gave each other a hi five.
After that the children were taught how to relax by breathing in and out slowly.
We thank the ladies from Shining Minds.
The past 3 weeks, our 3 year old Kinder children along with our 4 year old kinder children have had a visit from Healthy Harold the Giraffe and Tayla.
Harold and Tayla engaged in conversations with the children about healthy eating and together they chose healthy food for Harolds lunchbox!
To follow on from this experience, an inviting space was set up where children could make their own healthy dinner plate.
The children were also able to make connections with their eating habits by finding fruit and vegetables either by peeling off stickers or cutting out of magazines using their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Thanks for visiting Harold 🍉 🍎 🍌 🌽 🍅
Have you seen Victoria’s new Kinder Tick that our Owner Nicole was on the working group for?
Victoria has a new logo that can be used by all funded kindergarten programs, no matter where they’re delivered. The Kinder Tick has been introduced to tell parents and carers where they can find a kindergarten program, what a funded kindergarten program looks like, and why it’s so important for their child.
When families see the Kinder Tick, they can be confident:
✓ the program will be led by a qualified early childhood teacher
✓ children will benefit from play-based learning
✓ the kindergarten program is funded and approved by the Victorian Government
✓ the program meets government guidelines and complies with the National Quality Framework.
This initiative aims to help support kindergarten services across the state to promote their programs to their communities, especially ahead of the full roll-out of Three-Year-Old Kindergarten in 2022.
All services with funded a kindergarten program will receive free Kinder Tick signage packs to assist with promotion.
By looking for the Kinder Tick, families can be sure their child is taking part in an evidence-informed, play-based learning program that meets government guidelines.

Notification from the Department of Education at 10:15pm 14/02/2021
Dear early childhood education and care services
Following the email you received on Friday, I am writing to reiterate key points and provide some additional and updated information.
Circuit breaker action is now in place across Victoria until 11.59pm on Wednesday 17 February to limit the spread of COVID-19 and keep Victorians safe.
During this time, early childhood education and care (ECEC) services, including kindergartens, are permitted to remain open for all children. This allows parents/carers to work, while ensuring continuity of education and care for young children.
As you would have heard by now, Victoria enters a 5-day lockdown at 11:59pm tonight. Childcare is excluded from this lockdown.
All Kool Kidz Childcare services will be open as normal to ALL children from Monday to Wednesday. No workers permits are required.
Of course, we will be adhering to the health and safety advice provided by the government and continuing our stringent cleaning routines, handwashing protocols and mask-wearing requirements to keep the community safe.
If you have any questions, please call and speak with Natasha or Nicole.
We have done this before Victorians. Stay home, stay safe and let’s hope things are back to normal shortly.
A big congratulations to our owner Nicole, who has been re-elected onto the board of the Australian Childcare Alliance Victoria (ACAV) for the 3rd year where she will continue to advocate for children, families and early childhood professionals across the Early Childhood sector.
You may have read an article in today’s Herald Sun regarding centres increasing childcare fees from tomorrow.
Please note Kool Kidz Mill Park WILL NOT be increasing our daily fees in the near future. We feel that 2020 was a very tough year for our community and it is not the right time to forward on a price increase to families who may still not be working or working limited hours.
We are here for you and your needs each and every day and look forward to again in 2021, providing your son or daughter with quality early childhood education and care.
heraldsun.com.au Some Victorian childcare centres will start raising their fees from Monday after providers were barred from charging parents more during the pandemic.
Do you know someone returning to school that does not have a bag, stationery and a drink bottle?
We have 3 bags with stationery, a pencil case and a drink bottle and 4 bags with stationery to give away.
Please contact us via messenger or call us on 8418 0703.
Australia 🇦🇺 Day: our diverse society and landscape, our remarkable achievements and our bright future.

We are all in this together. Stay safe and enjoy the day 🙏
