On the 14th of September Ally’s Kindy held our annual Country Day. This day is held to appreciate all things country and western, with children and staff dressing up to the occasion and having a fun filled themed day!
Children enjoyed a day full of fun activities including “gold panning” and “milking the cow”. Children experienced making damper and enjoyed their delicious efforts for afternoon tea.
Our hearts have been saddened by the current drought that has affected our farmers and for this Country Day, our Ally’s community rallied together to raise funds for this cause.
A massive thank you to all of our families who participated and raised money for our Country Day; Fiver for a Farmer.
We raised a massive $2,300.00 with the proceeds going to Drought Angels and Rural Aid.
Special mention to our local businesses who kindly donated produce and merchandise for our raffle.
On the 31st of August, Ally’s held our first ever Father’s Day Morning Tea. Children were delighted to see their Dad’s at kindy and participate in different activities with them. We finished off the morning with some sweet treats. Thank you to all of our families who made the effort in attending this event!
Personal Hygiene is a fundamental life skill that helps children to remain healthy and to feel good about themselves, from preschool years to later years in life. To avoid getting sick and to kill germs, everyone needs to keep clean. So how can we help our children into keeping healthy personal hygiene habits?
Some medical conditions require exclusion from child care centres to prevent the spread of infectious diseases among staff and children.
The attached poster titled ‘Time Out’ provides information on the recommended minimum exclusion periods for infectious conditions and will assist our child care centre to meet the requirements of the Public Health Act 2005
Friday the 3rd of August Ally’s Kindy participated in Jeans for Genes Day, raising funds and awareness for research into birth defects and Genetic Diseases. This is a cause close to many of our Educators hearts.
The event started off with 3 of our Educators; Miss Fleur, Monica and Kylie completing the ‘Hands Free Jeans Challenge’. This challenge is all about putting a pair of jeans on without using your hands. All of our Educators did really well in attempting to get the jeans on without their hands and put on a great show.
Later on the children all had a chance at trying to put the Educators jeans on without their hands and with a little help from our Educators successfully did so! Well done to everyone who gave this challenge a go!
We drew our raffle and announced winners for 2018.
After the event finished, the children got to participate in various outdoor games and play.
Thank you to everyone who donated money and brought raffle tickets. We are very proud to announce that we have raised over $300.00 to this worthy cause.
It is no surprise that children love being physically active. They enjoy running, jumping and usually if a child’s not spontaneously active they are unwell. Did you know that being active improves children’s health and their education?
