January Educators of the Month
Congratulations to our first 2 educators for the month of January.
Jemma worked very hard leading her amaizng team for the month of January in the kinder room.There certainly was some stressful days but you did a fantastic job and I am very proud of you.
Alysia not only had a broken foot but was very flexible being thrown into lots of different roles throughout the centre.
Alysia was happy to change regular work days to help suit the roster.
Alysia not only filled in for myself and Jane in the office also did a great job filling in the kitchen.

Happy Families with Dr. Justin Coulson ~ How To Turn Your Anger Around Without Yelling
Every parent has those days. The ones where your child has refused to get ready for school, thrown food at his brother and stomped on the dog’s tail. Or you ask, and ask again. And again. And AGAIN! And the kids just won’t listen… or if they listen, they won’t do as they’re told! When days like that happen – and they do – we can get so angry that we lash out. With smacking now being seen as less “acceptable”, the lashing out often takes the form of yelling.
