What's On

Orientation Morning

New enrolments have been invited, and are welcome to attend our Orientation Morning, held between 9.30 and 11.00am. Experiences will be set up for children to participate in, whilst parents and carers have the opportunity to meet and speak with their child’s teacher/educator, as well as listen to our Director and Educational Leader as they provide reminders about the daily operations of the preschool and how we program individually for each child.

First Day of Term 1

All those enrolled for 2017, will begin their year at Bradbury Preschool.

Sweetheart Day

With a couple of children attending, that have both spent time in hospital due to heart disease, this year Bradbury Preschool is proud to be hosting Sweetheart Day celebrations in support of Childhood Heart Disease.

We are asking families to dress their children with a 'splash of red,' and bring a gold coin donation to preschool, and take part in a fun spirited even, all along showing their support to those in real need.

Henny Penny Hatchings

The Henny Penny Hatching program will be delivered this week. It includes a specifically designed incubator with eggs ready to hatch over the week; a couple of small chicks already hatched; and a large clear-sided brooding pen for the chicks to play as they hatch.

This will be set-up in the Koala Room, and available for those families whom wish to view it, for two weeks. Children from all rooms will have the opportunity to visit and view the chicks at each stage of the process.

The program provides the children with an experience which will be remembered, discussed and treasured for years to come. It’s a wonderful opportunity to educate children to nurture and care for living creatures, whilst studying their life-cycle.

Preschool Photos

Children's photos are taken by a long established company, Versatile Photographics, who have been taking our photos for many years. This year these will be held on Tuesday 7 and Friday 10 March.

Easter Egg Hunt

The Easter Egg Hunt is a great fundraising night that has run at the preschool for many a year. Children pack their torches and come along for a night of fun with a sausage sizzle, and activities such as colored hairspray, glo-sticks, lucky dips, and a monster Easter raffle. When it is dark the children move to the other yard with their torches to scavenge for Easter eggs.

Anzac Memorial Ceremony

We will be holding our Anzac Memorial Ceremony again this year. During this we will assemble all children in the front yard near the flag poles, a few words will be spoken by a local serving veteran, the flags will be lowered at half mast, the ‘Last Post’ will be played, and we will have one minute’s silence. This will be followed by a morning tea of all things Australian – Anzac biscuits, lamingtons, etc; and a game of 'Come in Spinner'.

Bush Kinder Session

This term we will be commencing a Bush Kinder program on the last Wednesday of each month. On these days, we will be remaining outdoors for the duration and limiting the amount of equipment that is provided.

Children will be encouraged to utilise lose parts and various elements of nature in their play. This type of nature based play stimulates imagination and creativity, as well as all areas of development. We will also be including such experiences as local community walks, fire pit, cooking, art and craft, etc.

Mother's Day Stalls

This years Mother’s Day Stalls will be held Tuesday 8, and Friday 12 May, and allows children to ‘shop’ for a gift for their special someone, making their selection out of the gifts on offer, and paying for their purchase.

Bradbury Public School Playgroup

For those children who are beginning Kindergarten in 2018 at Bradbury Public School, they are once again beginning their Play Group. Children attending Preschool on a Friday will be attending fortnightly. This is a great opportunity for children to join in with fun and games, learn together, make new friends, and become familiar with their future ‘big school’ environment. This year the play group will be run by both the teachers of Bradbury Public School and the Macarthur Diversity Services Initiative.

The Lion Who Lost His Roar

The Young Australian Workshop team will be visiting to provide a magical fun-filled puppet show that focuses around the themes of belonging, identity and respectful behaviour. Rexy the dinosaur has no manners. He never says please, he never says thank you, and he spends his day roaring at the animals and teasing Bob for being small. Dymera the magic tree forest has seen it all and decides to teach Rexy a lesson. She removes his roar and takes him on a magical journey in time to Australia where the native animals will teach Rexy a thing or two about manners, identity and about accepting the animals for who they are.

Mother's Day Pamper & High Tea

This year we are inviting mums, nan’s, and aunt’s to join us for a special afternoon in honour of Mother’s Day. There will be experiences set up to participate in with your child, a campfire with scones and billy tea, stations set-up for your child to ‘pamper’ their loved ones, as well as a a yummy high tea area to indulge.

Transition to School Information Evening

Take the opportunity to: Listen to guest speakers from Bradbury Public School, as they provide information on the school, the enrolment and orientation process, and the skills children require in preparation for kindergarten. There will also be Speech and Occupational Therapists to discuss their roles, the ages/stages of communication and motor skills, as well as what can be done at home to further develop children’s skills in these areas. As well as a Hearing Specialist from Hearing Tests 4 Kids, providing information on how hearing may affect learning, etc.
