Curriculum and Program
Mini Master Chefs
Cooking with children is about touching, tasting, experimenting, and enjoying eating what you have made together. Mini masterchefs will provide a safe environment for cooking with children where you can have fun without having to worry about the mess! We love parent helpers at this time, you’re welcome to join us during the Mini Masterchef classes. Please check the monthly program located on the noticeboard.
Miss Anna, our very much loved Dance Teacher, comes from Joan Carmody School of Dancing. She teaches the children a range of dances. Our children love bopping to music, developing actions to words and having so much fun. She joins us every Tuesday and Thursday.
‘When young children use their imaginations in play, they are more creative, perform better at school tasks, and develop a problem-solving approach to learning. Educating a child’s imagination is therefore an important way to prepare children for the future.’ Isenberg & Jalongo (2001).
Our children will be involved in the Munch & Move program daily.
Why do we need Munch & Move?
Early childhood is the ideal time for children to form healthy food and physical activity habits that will give them the best chance of maintaining a healthy weight throughout their lives. It is also a great time to cultivate the fundamental movement skills and confidence children need to enjoy physical activities at school.
Many children spend a substantial amount of time in early childhood services, therefore it is important that these services provide an environment that supports and encourages healthy lifestyles for young children with a focus on physical activity and healthy eating.
