GREAT FUN AND A LEARNING EXPERIENCE USING WATER BEADS!

Water Beads

How about adding a more interesting element to water based play by using coloured water beads! 

There are many benefits in using this method of play to encourage positive behaviour management, cognitive development and fine motor skills.

Check out the link below for more interesting information on water beads play!

As always, with any water based activity, please make sure that the children participating are supervised at all times.  We recommend this activity for the older age range of 4-7 years.  Have fun!

USE ‘STAMPING’ IN YOUR CENTRES TO DEVELOP CREATIVITY AND FUN !

Potato Stamp

Remember the old wooden stamps we used as children?  How about digging that box out from the back of the cupboard and giving it a go or alternatively cut some fun shapes into potatoes – a great way of developing children’s creativity and helping them to learn about shapes and colours!

Check out the website below for some tips!

Tips and Ideas for Early Childhood Educators

A Different Approach

 

 

 

 

 

STARTING BLOCKS

ACECQA has launched a great new website called Starting Blocks, which has been created to help families understand what childcare is all about and to give tips and ideas on how to interact positively with their children.  The developmental domains for children from 0-5 years old are in the link below.  Although this is aimed at families, we think it is a great way to refresh and update your knowledge base.

LEARNING STORIES

It’s good to remember that as part of the team in any childcare centre you may be asked to write a learning story about a child or group of children.  If you need some inspiration or ideas on Learning Stories, check out this website – it’s a great starting point!
