Preschool team updates

From the Team Leader

Preschool students playing

Dear families,

Welcome to Semester 2, 2020 and what a year it has been. The preschool children are excited about spending time together again as they continue to experience new learning opportunities.

Our Preschool teaching team consists of:

· Merilyn Hancock and Preschool Assistant, Meena (Munnagayi)

· Sofia Ritman and Preschool Assistant, Trina Meredith (Gudgauar and Gulamany)

The classes are also supported by learning assistances Jenny, Jasmine and Julie.

Early Years Learning Framework and developmentally challenging opportunities, continue to be a big part of our preschool day to day learning. The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming. At Preschool, we focus on all these things, but a strong focus will be on ‘being’ this semester. As it is about living in the here and now. With so many communities and global changes, they are experiences this year, we really emphasis children to ‘be’—time to play, try new things and have fun.

This semester, children have experienced their first STEAM festival and will also have an opportunity to experience a mini style Olympics as well as excursions to the wetlands.

If you have any questions about the preschool program or your child’s time at Preschool, please feel free to contact your child’s preschool teacher or me.

Kind regards

Jayne Murray | Acting Preschool Team Leader
