Pirate Day Friday

On Friday the 8th of June 2018, Ally’s hosted Pirate Day Friday to fund raise money for vital research into Childhood Cancer.

Children proudly came dressed up as pirates and enjoyed various themed day activities. The day was a lot of fun for the children and educators alike, getting into their rascally characters.

Allys Kindy is proud to announce that we have raised $50.00 towards Childhood Cancer Research.

A big thank you to all families who participated and donated to such a worthy cause!

Baby Dummy Safety

DUMMYWhile dummies are designed to help comfort and settle children, they are also a potential hazard to infants and young toddlers.

This safety information has surfaced due to a recent incident that occurred in QLD where an 18 month old baby swallowed a dummy.

Mothers Day Morning Tea

On the 11th May, Ally’s Kindy held our Annual Mother’s Day Morning Tea. It was wonderful to have so many of our families turn up for this event!

Our Mother’s got to do a art activity each with their child and spend some time in the room playing alongside of them. Afterwards, everyone was treated to warm scones with jam and whipped cream.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our families!

Positive Toileting

Toilet training is an experience that all families go through. Some families seem to have their children trained overnight. Others take longer. It can be a frustrating time between parent and child. So how can toilet training become a positive experience?

2018 Easter Celebrations

Ally’s Kindy Annual…

Easter Bonnet Parade

On the 29th of March, the children were excited to display their hats they had created for the Centre’s annual Easter Bonnet Parade. The morning went wonderfully despite having to move the parade inside due to the wet weather. Afterwards the children had an Easter lolly hunt and were thrilled with their finds! Thank you to everyone whom attended in support of their children. It was wonderful to see.
