It was one of the children's favourite time of the year again, Pyjama Week. Everyone was excited to wear their colourful printed pyjamas and show their friends what they would normally wear to bed.
Even the teachers loved wearing their pyjamas to work.
To celebrate pyjama week we watched the children's favourite movie at the moment 'Frozen', while eating delicious popcorn.
Pyjama week gave the children a sense of being as they recognised the signiﬁcance of the here and now in their lives. Children's being relates to the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others and engaging with life’s joys.
All the children and their families had a lovely time at our annual Art & Craft exhibition. Everyone came together to view the children's artworks that they had created while enjoying some delicious antipasto platters and wine. Each of the rooms had their own theme related to their artworks which were based on the children's interests.
Lilli Pilli Room
The Lilli Pilli children had an interest in colours and exploring sensory play. They combined these interests together to create colourful 3D textured artworks.
Little Rugby came to visit the children and taught them the basic skills needed to play rugby. The children got active as they ran around the outdoor area passing the rugby balls to each other. They were then given the opportunity to kick the rugby balls through the goal post. Everyone had lots of fun participating in these activities with their friends.
Little Rugby helps early childhood centres promote physical activity into their program in a new and fun way.

We love getting into the Irish spirit and celebrating St Partick's Day. All the children were involved in lots of activites during the day.
The Lilli Pilli room created Leprechaun portaits, decorating them with lots of gold glitter. They also helped Dalia to cook bread, adding herbs to make it green.
The Acacia's had lots of green activities going on in the room. The children's favourite was the green collage experience, especially because they had lots of green glitter.
The Waratah room was very excited to discover that a Leprechaun had left them a treasure map to a pot of gold in their room. The children examined the map and went on a treasure hunt to find where it had hidden the pot of gold. The children were very pleased with themselves when they found the pot of gold outside in the garden at the end of the rainbow.
