February Newlsetter

Newsletter February 2012

Welcome back to Preschool to all of our families and children. We all hope you enjoyed your Christmas and holidays.  We have made a few changes to the Preschool including; a new interior softboard covered hesian cladding to cover the painted walls, a Parent Notice board out on the deck so we can share information with you and some changes to the interior layout.  Please encourage your children to sign in when they arrive on session to help support their early literacy and writing skills. 

 At the end of last year we conducted interviews for new teachers and we are very pleased to inform you that we have been able to employ two new teachers on a part time basis.  

Elysia Green will be working in the Under 2 area Tuesday to Friday with our infants and toddlers.  Elysia is a qualified, registered Teacher with previous Under 2 experience and has moved to live in the Pakiri area over the Christmas holidays with her family.

Kym Powell  (Samara’s Mum) was been relieving for us last year and she will be coming in on Wednesday for Non Contact release time for the teachers.  Kym is a qualified registered Primary trained teacher who has many years of experience and offers a valuable perspective to share particularly with our older children.

We welcome Elysia and Kym to our Teaching team and Preschool please introduce yourselves to them if you don’t already know them. We are planning on holding a family BBQ over next few weeks to get to know our new teachers and families.

We also welcome some new children and their families to our Preschool, Apikera and Jimi Baker who started in the last couple of weeks of last term, OShana Lima who is nearly 5, Luke Dzedins who is three. We hope you all enjoy your time here at Leigh Community Preschool and make lots of new friends.

Please ensure your children have water bottles, hats and two sets of spare clothes for water/sand and messy play.

Our overall focus for this term is Summer in Aotearoa which includes all the great aspect of living in NZ: water safety, slip slop slap, 5+ A Day,
and we hope to go over for a swim in the school pool once we get more settled in.
Hearing and Vision for all 4 year old children not already tested on Wednesday 14th of March 2012 at 9.45am

Welcome back from all the team and we wish you all a great year ahead.
Carmel, Vicki, Jenny, Elysia, Kym, Selena and the Management Committee
