​Our 4 year olds have been taking what they have been learning with different activities using their fine motor skills and applying it to writing their names.  Something as simple as ripping paper, squeezing pegs can help your child learn to write!

Pamper Day!

Every school holidays there is an extra special day that all of our tamariki love and that is pamper day.  They get spoilt with foot rubs and nail polish and have a lot of fun.  Our Kaiako love treating them to these relaxing experiences and seeing the smiles on their faces :)

It may look messy but there is so much learning going on!  Gloop is a fun, messy and interactive way to discover the tamariki senses.  As the children play with the gloop, they talk about their experience... words like... Slimy... Yucky... Wet... Cold.  Learning can be so much fun, especially when we get messy :)
