Dear Families

I would like to communicate that I will be on my annual leave from the 5th of June until the 3rd of July. If you have any question, concern or request, Irene and David will be more than happy to assist you.

Their emails are:

Irene: amigoss@amigosspreschool.com.au

David: admin@amigosspreschool.com.au

 

Regarding our program for the month of June and upcoming events:

SUSTAINABILITY!

The staff team at Amigoss considers that we need to dedicate a whole month to talk to the children about sustainability, since it is an essential topic to be taught.

Environment and its care can be a very abstract concept, and we have researched about how to approach this topic the best way possible.

We have based our program on this article, among others:

Children need to understand Earth, how their bodies work and what they need to have in our environment before we ask them to protect it.

For babies and toddlers we want to focus on new vocabulary and association of concepts, along with hands-on experiences.

For preschoolers, we want to encourage their thinking process through questions and meaningful experiences.

Some of the concepts will be: reduce, reuse, recycling and its process; waste, separate our waste (why and how), pollution, health, environments, habitats, animals, plants.

On the 7th of June, at 3.30 we will have a show about Sustainability.  As usual, you are invited to come to the show with your children.

We request your input and ideas to develop our program. As we discussed in the parents´meeting, you can actively participate with the children and the staff coming to do an activity with them. We can add you to our calendar.

Thank you once again for your support.

We hope you like this month´s  program.
