Ellerslie Term Two 2019

As a teaching team internal evaluation is part of our continual improvement process. We select an area to review and go through a cycle of analysing, investigating, researching and actioning changes. Currently, we have chosen to evaluate our programme documentation. You would know this as our daily notice, recognise, respond, our wall plans and the children’s individual learning that is documented in their portfolios. We will keep you updated with our changes as they happen and welcome your feedback or input.

Summer is now at full strength and children are required to wear a hat if they wish to play outside. Please bring a named hat for your child, which you can leave in one of our hat boxes if you wish. Although we do have our shade sails up, much of our outdoor area is still exposed to the sun so please apply sunscreen to your child before coming to kindy.

Glendowie Term One 2019

Last year we feel we made some good progress on our sustainable practices at Kindy. We made use of the food we have been growing in the garden, reduced our lunch box rubbish and many families have made the change to reusable bags for wet clothes or washing. We would like to continue to grow in this area and plan to reflect on our current practices to implement further changes. If you have any suggestions, please let us know.
