September Stories 

September brought in many changes to the centre.

We welcomed a few new friends and their families throughout the month.  Our program made many adjustments to help them to feel at home with us. 

In September, some of the children's' interests were observed by their teachers. As usual, our play-based curriculum provided many engaging, inspiring and creative activities based on these interests.

A variety of materials were used such as water, coloured water, bubble water, shaving cream, paints in different colours, bubble play and playdough play.
