Christmas Time

The children are very excited about Christmas time – parties, holidays, Christmas trees, Santa and presents! We have been having lots of different activities in the centre to support the children’s interest with songs and dance, art and craft, baking, pretend play, decorating and storytelling. It is such a delightful time for the children!

Bug Man – Creatures Unlimited

The wild and wonderful in our own backyard!

Today Brian the bug man (Creatures unlimited) arrived at our  centre with so many containers and boxes of wonder and curiosity for the children.

The children eagerly waited inside and watched out the window. They saw a four wheel drive (a car that they are not familiar with in our car park), the shouts of excitement told me the bug man was here. The children sat down  so very quickly,  such a surprising site.  Brian captivated the children’s (and adults)  attention with a variety of insects, a spider and reptiles for close to an hour.  The care, respect and attention that the children gave to the creatures  was clearly noticed, as they listened to Brian  give a short talk about each creature. The hands on (tactile) experience helped the children to acquire  more knowledge, respect and positive attitude towards the creatures.

Possibilities and opportunities- This experience has brought together the children’s knowledge and understanding of nature. We will continue to support the children who still have an ongoing interest in insects. We will continue to talk with the children about their experience with the variety of insects/reptiles. We will continue to care and respect  our outside environment.
