Junior Kindy June 2018

Junior Kindy June Newsletter

Over the last month, the children have shown great interest in singing the alphabet and recognising the first letter of their names, counting to 20, recognising shapes and colours during group time and during free play. We have displayed numbers and the alphabet on the wall for the children to explore on their own or as a group.

At this age some children still find it hard to share and positively express their emotions. We will be working closely with all children to encourage them to share with their peers and educators and help encourage the children to express their emotions in a positive way. We ask all parents to implement these strategies at home to help with this process.

We are always interested to hear feedback and input into our routine and program in the room. If any parents have feedback or input into our program please don’t hesitate to see Junior Kindy Staff.

Please remember- To name all your child’s belongings, so it is easier for staff to identify each child’s belongings and make them less likely to get lost or misplaced
