We have Evie, the Christmas Elf visit us on 14th December (Friday). She recreated the atmosphere of the wintery North Pole, and engaged the children to help her in her work as Santa’s assistants in visiting the boys and girls in different parts of the world. The show included interactive winter storytelling, magic tricks galore, beautiful singing, performer led group dancing and fun Christmas party games. Click HERE for photos
We have invited Maggie Moo to come by on 28th November (Wednesday). Jo entertained the children with simple music and songs to promote movement and cognitive skills. She provided 2 group experiences so that the Bumblebee and Butterfly groups could have age appropriate catered sessions. We ALL loved the bubbles at the end!
We had an enjoyable session with Happy Harold on 23rd November (Friday). During the interactive session, children gained a deeper understanding of feelings, emotions and how to be a ‘good’ friend. The specialist Educator from Harold used games, story-telling, puppetry, songs and discussions and the iconic mascot Health Harold (giraffe) in the delivery of the programme. Click HERE for photos
We had Farmer Joe and her friend Maggie Moo join us at Pelican for a musical learning experience about farm animals. The children were respectful active listeners for our guest and showed enthusiasm when given the opportunity to play with a variety of instruments. The children were able to express their prior understanding of the animals through correctly naming the puppet friends and making their noises with Farmer Joe. They especially loved when the bubble machine was brought out, as they tried to 'clap', 'pop' and 'catch' the bubbles, which furthered their motor development through hand-eye coordination.

We had a fabulous time being able to participate in the Smoking Ceremony and other activities at Shellharbour Council to celebrate NAIDOC week.
We had a visit from Tiny Tins, who helped us learn about rubbish disposal and how to get rid of big items of rubbish.
