Yard Clean

Vince from Bunnings Parafield Gardens visited our reception courtyard and cleaned our area. We were very grateful and enjoyed watching the process!

Investigations at the Fish Farm!

Today we took our investigations to the Fish Farm and Log Park! We enjoyed utilizing the space and it was fantastic to see the children flow enthusiastically around the provocations and embrace the outdoors!

We saw the children help with feeding the fish, identifying the different types of fish and making connections. We also had children enter log park for a camp fire! They sat around with their learning power puppet friends and engaged in pretend play.

We were very excited to also have our learning power puppets come with us to investigations.
