A healthy, nutritionally balanced diet appropriately feeds the mind, body and soul. Eat well, eat regularly & eat healthily. We always offer freshly prepared nutritional foods to aid your child’s development and growth.You are what you eat!
Physical exercise drives the body to develop and grow. Make play physical, inside and outside, through activities involving dance, running, balancing, climbing, jumping, slithering, rolling, building, kicking, throwing and catching.
All the things you now take for granted are the very things your child is waiting to discover for the first time. Recognise that your child will delight in the mundane, thrive on the ordinary, excite at the usual, and often want to repeat, repeat, repeat that experience.
The end product of any process is not relevant, it is the journey from the beginning to the end that is important for a child.Learning a process (how to do something) is where all the learning takes place. What the final outcome actually looks like is totally irrelevant.
We gradually lose our ability to play if we do not engage life with the same wonder we had as a child. Regain that insight as you share in your child’s delight and amazement. This will significantly enhance your ability to engage your child in their discoveries and development.
When you are having fun your mind and body are at their most receptive. In this state of mind your child wants to engage, loves to learn, wants to be involved and most of all wants to do it again and again and again.
Everything looks, feels and smells different as the weather changes. Hot, warm, cold, windy, foggy, wet, snowy, icy – there is always something new and exciting to discover. The weather isn’t the problem. The problem is the way we are dressed.
