On Wednesday, some of our baby friends helped the educators collect flowers from our garden to make a rainbow to follow Noah’s Ark. They helped place the flowers in a muffin tray, guided by the actions of one of the educators. Each little cup was then topped with water. We then placed the tray in the freezer, to get ready for a icy experience the next day.
As the weather was lovely and warm on Thursday, we thought it would be a perfect time to set up the icy tea time experience. To extend on yesterday's learning, the collecting and placing of flowers, the children explored and played with icy flower and lemon cupcakes.They used all sorts of collected items while playing, brushes to melt the cupcakes, jugs to pour the melting ice and patty pans, cups and saucers to transport the icy cupcakes too! As the ice melted, their curiosity and excitement grew, discovering the lemon and flowers escaping from the ice. The babies enjoyed smelling the flowers, feeling the cooling sensation of the ice and even tasting the lemony icy cupcakes as well. This type of experience gives children a chance to practise their fine motor skills, helps in further developing their sensory skills and creates an opportunity to use their creativity and imagination in how they use the materials provided. ...

A Little Tea Party
As an extension of previous experiences we invited the children to a tea party and introduced the children to Fine China. The children were very gentle with the tea set. We gave real tea leaves and sliced lemon. They were absorbed in the experience taking turns to pour the water. They placed lemon slices into the cups and I added the tea leaves into the pots. The smells were amazing and the children were very calm. They squeezed the lemons to get the juice from the fruit. As they got more involved in the pouring some of the children started to sing their own songs. Afterwards the children helped to clean the cups and saucers using very gentle hands. @ Ruth Landau Harp Early Learning #nofilterneeded ... See MoreSee Less

We are fundraising for 2 x cubby houses for our Kindy and Toddler aged children and 2 x 6 seater strollers for our babies to go out and explore the world around them.
Any donations, no matter how small, would be much appreciated to help reach our goal!

Miss Marliana writes: "This morning our toddlers continued our exploration of the pouring experience with our beautiful Kiddush cup fountain. It was amazing to watch how the children were so calm, uninterrupted and engaged in the experience. They were in awe, watching how the red coloured water would flow down from the fountain and fill up each cup. They were so gentle and gracious in handling the beautiful authentic tableware.
