MESSY PLAY is important!

It let children explore, create, investigate, imagine and most importantly have FUN!

LEARNING CAN BE MESSY BUT THATS OKAY!💛💚🧡
We EXCITED to announce, next year we will be introducing gardening for our kiddos!!😬😬💚💚💚

A garden can be an interactive playground for kids that will engage all of their senses. It’s where they can touch and feel the fruits of their labor, fancy the brightly colored flowers, grow accustomed to natural scents, and the sound of rustling shrubs.

To involve all the senses will feed both curiosity and passion in toddlers. Gardening also enhances fine motor development!

Why all kids should be riding bikes🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️💚

From the first toddler push-bike to learning to ride on a tricycle, to the independence of cycling to a friend’s house - kids and bikes have long gone hand in hand.

It improves stamina and cardiovascular functioning and sets your kids on an early path to a healthy heart. It also allows children to practise their fine and gross motor skills, co-ordination and balance, all skills that will help them as they grow into young adults.
Children are the keys of paradise❤

In PLAY:
Children learn about friendships and how to negotiate with others in social situations.💚💚
Teachers play a big part in support play💚

Talking about play. Adults can extend and support a child’s play simply by engaging with children during play. Adults can talk to children about their play. By being involved, children learn that adults are invested in them and respect their play decisions.

Validating their efforts. Participating in play with your child is fun for them and shows them you value what they are doing. Your presence and proximity to children can communicate a lot to them.

Adding to children’s play. In actively participating in play, when invited, adults can extend upon a child’s current knowledge and help them make new connections. This can be done by modeling positive behaviors or interactions.

Preventing problems. By being actively involved in the process of play, adults are in a good position to intervene if a situation arises when a child might need help, whether it is an interpersonal conflict, a problem or a safety concern. It’s important to remember children need opportunities to practice problem solving and conflict resolution independently as well. Make sure to give children ample opportunities to practice these skills on their own and only intervene if necessary.

Building children up. Sometimes children may need help engaging in activities or joining an activity, and when adults are regularly a part of their play, they can be a good bridge to help children feel comfortable initiating and participating in play.
Construction Play

Block play offers an open-ended, creative and valuable play and learning experience available to every setting. It offers children freedom – to explore, take apart and put back together any block-based creation they can think of.

Beyond setting the stage for later mathematical learning, blocks offer children an unbiased experience to play and create. We can think of blocks as a blank canvas for children at all developmental levels to explore. For example, some children might choose to line the blocks up, having no plan for the structure to “be” anything at all, other than an experience manipulating and exploring the shapes. While other children might want to explore balancing the blocks by building up, seeing how many blocks they can place on before it crashes down. And other children will have an idea in mind and create one or several structures that represent something else, such as a “house,” “farm,” or “road.” While children build, we like to observe and comment, validating the child’s work, “You’re building so high!,” or “The blocks are balancing.” We try not to ask what the children what they are building, because we do not want to assume that they are building anything at all or put a judgment on the experience.

A good way to open up a conversation about a child’s structure is to say: “Do you want to tell me about your structure?” That gives the child the opportunity to describe what they did.

Why do children love to swing?

Swinging stimulates different parts of a child's brain simultaneously. It helps them develop skills such as spatial awareness, balance, rhythm and muscle control.

Even a quiet moment on a swing can help a child regulate their sensory system and help them develop the ability to adapt to different sensations.😊💚💛🧡❤

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. 💚💛❤

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn. 🤗🤗

This week's theme was:The Hospital🏥

This theme is all about doctors, nurses, and hospitals! As children build literacy, develop vocabulary, practice math concepts, and participate in dramatic play and movement activities, they also gain confidence in relation to their own medical experiences. Through songs, literature, music, sorting, organizing, rhyming, and more, children come to understand how and why doctors and nurses are important members of communities, helping people to stay healthy and to heal when they are sick.

Our cute future frontline heros made awesome doctors hats as well as their own medical bag with their special tools!

Our bigger group made their own x-ray and spoke about all the bones in the human body.

Our learners truly enjoyed this weeks theme and we are sure the next trip to the doctor will be a smooth one! Well done boys and girls!👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️🏥❤

This week we celebrated teacher Pumi's birthday😀❤

Our precious kids made her a special mud birthday cake from their mud kitchen!🥳❤

Mud kitchens work incredibly well as part of PSED for learners because they encourage role play, sharing and turn taking. The kitchen style environment promotes role play amongst children and it’s not uncommon to see learners taking on the role of a chef in a restaurant kitchen or mum or dad cooking at home. By taking on these roles, children are developing their social skills and heightening emotional understanding.

Communication and Language Development
Mud kitchens encourage children to talk about what they’re doing, and often the excitement of being outside and involved in messy play gets young learners feeling even more confident about speaking and sharing their thoughts. The kitchen set-up creates a rich language environment that provides opportunities for children to use specific vocabulary related to kitchen utensils and cooking.

Physical Development
Physically, learners need to be able to grip hold of utensils such as spoons and spatulas, as well as lift heavy bowls. This helps to develop the muscles in the hands, which is mainly cartilage at this age, and in turn supports fine motor skill development. Mixing and stirring also boosts hand-eye coordination.

A LITTLE BIT OF DIRT NEVER HURTS WHEN LEARNING THROUGH PLAY!!😊❤

Our theme this week was: The Five Senses - sight👀, taste👅, touch👐, hearing👂 and smell 👃

Senses allow us to observe and understand the world around us. There are five main ways we can do this: through sight (with our eyes), touch (with our fingers), smell (with our nose), taste (with our tongue) and hearing (with our ears).

Our 4-5 years group are getting well prepared for Grade R next year!😁

*Hand-eye coordination by cutting out their worksheets on a dotted line
*Following patterns
*Pencil gripping
*Colouring in the lines and many more!

We are super proud of our kiddos!!And we are extremely grateful for all the efforts our amazing teachers instill by planting the seeds of knowledge to these precious kids!❤❤

This weeks theme was SPORTS⚽️🏏🏒🏓🏈🥎

The learners were taught all the different kinds of Sports and were given sport equipment to play with.

They spoke about the different sport equipment as well as comparing the different kind of shoes that each sport used.

They were also taught about the Olympics:

The Olympic Games are an international sports festival, held every four years. The ultimate goals are to cultivate human beings, through sport, and contribute to world peace.

The Olympic symbol (the Olympic rings) expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.

Our kiddos truly enjoyed this weeks theme activities😁😁

Some amazing health and hygiene activities from our older groups😁

Our theme this week: Health and Hygiene😷

As part of our sensory theme activity for our toddler group, they all received gloves as they learned how to wash germs away with soap and water🙂

Sensory play is important as it encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. It helps to build nerve connections in the brain and encourages the development of language and motor skills.

Our cute Little Kiddos truly enjoyed this activity!❤❤

Our theme this week: Transportation🚗🚚🛵🚲🚎🚉✈🚁🛳and Road Safety🛑🚦🛤🚧🚨

Road safety is an important step for all children. They might be young but they can easily absorb information in their brains. Teaching them how to be road smart can benefit them in the future, for the safety of themselves and other people. Gaining an awareness of unsafe situations while crossing the road can help them gain a better understanding on the differences between safe and unsafe behaviour when crossing pedestrian crossings, traffic lights and streets. Encourage them to think about the choices they make and to identify safe and unsafe situations when being outside.
