In the Nursery we like to get a little messy and explore our senses!!
Sensory play builds and strengthens nerve connections in the developing brain’s neural pathways, which fosters a child’s willingness and ability to do complex tasks. … See MoreSee Less

Today we went on our first excursion to the Community Gardens with some of the Junior Kindy children and educators. The children did so well to get there and back and had such a great time running around the gardens investigating everything they could. We started off at the playground driving the train, playing in the sandpit, finding the statues through the gardens, walking the bridge and hiding in the teepee. We then made our way down to the veggie garden and had close looks at eggplants, bananas, mulberries, some children tasting the cherry tomatoes. The flower gardens were next with the children smelling the different coloured flowers and finding insects including butterflies, ladybugs and bumblebees. We then went for a walk through the path ways exploring hidden seating areas and walking tracks.
The children had a great time and showed a great respect for the natural environment. They verbally communicated what they could see and expressed their happiness continuously throughout the morning. The children learnt with their senses today, looking for insects, smelling the fruits and flowers, feeling the plants and leaves and tasting the tomatoes and lemon. … See MoreSee Less

All of the children loved finding the big and small rocks inside the shaving cream. This kind of sensory play helps the children, with fosters, Curiosity, Imagination and Exploration.
With messy play their experiences help the children understand there senses. By exploring how things feel, smell and taste, this type of play nurtures an awareness and understanding of the world that surrounds them. … See MoreSee Less
The junior Kindy room has been busy visiting our local community gardens On Oakland Street. We have collected some insects, we especially love the lady bugs we have found. We have extended on this interest with some craft activities back at the centre. Check out our photos of the children exploring. We even spotted a curious possum who poked his little pink nose out at us.
Children are using their senses as they smell and feel the vegetables and plants that they find. They are exploring the taste of some of them. They are learning to appreciate the environment with their friends and using their gross motor skills as they walk, climb, jump and explore their surroundings. … See MoreSee Less
