PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH YOUR CHILDREN!
Thank you to those families who have already made a contribution to the kindy technology survey sent out via email. It has been so interesting to hear your thoughts and ideas about screen technologies and how these might be incorporated in kindergarten settings. It has also been insightful to consider your thoughts and concerns around the time that children spend using screen technologies and how screen use might be monitored.
There is still time to contribute to the survey if you would like your voice to be heard.
The kindergarten Management Committee in partnership with the staff will consider your feedback in order to develop a position statement about technology use at Aspley East Kindy.
Hand in Hand: Let's go places.
CARRS-Q is pleased to announce a new initiative to keep kids safe
Our latest safety campaign is all about kids: children aged 3 — 9 who are at risk of becoming involved in pedestrian/vehicle crashes.
Research has shown us that, until the age of nine, children’s perceptual and cognitive abilities are not sufficiently developed to allow them to make sound judgements when they’re crossing roads. It’s hard for them to judge vehicle distances and speeds. What’s more, many crashes occur when they impulsively run out between parked cars.
Please click the link above to read more practical information about how you can keep your children safe around cars. This information is particularly relevant to our kindergarten given our proximity to the very busy shopping centre car park.
It is that time of year when families are starting to think about the upcoming transition to school. 'School readiness' is a complex and often contentious concept which is interpreted differently by families, early childhood educators and primary schools. To make it more confusing there can sometimes even be disagreement between different parties on its exact meaning. Over the coming months there will be a series of posts here on the website which include varying perspectives on school readiness.
