Movie Day

The preschoolers had a special treat on 16th December (Friday). They celebrated their achievement during the year with their friends, by having a Movie Day watching 'Trolls'. We greatly appreciated families (Kayla, Karina, Larissa) who have helped in the transfer of children to and from the Centre due to the bad weather, as well as families (Jarrah, Claire, Kayla, Karina, Larissa) who have put aside extra child car restraint seats for us to use in the transportation of the children.

Rangers on the run (Butterfly enclosure)

We had an enjoyable week with the butterfly enclosure (from 23rd to 27th October). Through this session, children learn about the life cycle of butterflies, and had the opportunities to interact with caterpillars and butterflies. Initially we were a little concerned with a few of the butterflies dying. But by the end of the week we were fortunate enough to watch a butterfly emerging from its cocoon!
