Shake ‘n’ Bake
Children and baking…the perfect mix! Getting children into the kitchen to help you cook is indeed a win-win situation, regardless of their age and what you prepare. By interacting while cooking, children do not just learn how to cook—they gain a lot more.
Here are some advantages:
- Eating foods and dishes from other countries allows children to learn about diverse cultures.
- Reading and following recipes can help children improve in various areas, including science and math. It can also boost reading and comprehension skills.
- Awareness about food preparation boosts cleanliness and organisational skills.
- Cooking together creates a special bond and establishes feelings of responsibility.
- Fine motor skills are improved with motions like stirring and pouring.
- Simple math skills are enhanced by counting and measuring ingredients.
- Children learn how to share, socialise and work as a team.
- Messy Play
- Messy Play sessions are on each week in our Baby & Toddler Rooms!
- There are many benefits to messy play! Early childhood education experts say that play is the work of the child. This is true for all kids, but especially for toddlers. At Marangaroo Child Care Centre we roll up our sleeves and enjoy messy play time with your little ones. Messy play stimulates the senses. The tactile experience gained during messy play helps little ones experience a variety of textures. During messy play, toddlers are developing eye hand coordination and fine motor skills. What looks like a mess on the surface is truly a learning experience for your child.
Squiggles & Scribbles art classes
Art Time gives your children an opportunity to explore their creative side as they experience new carefully planned art activities weekly in our fun filled friendly environment.
Using art as a method of ‘Learning Through Play’ the children themselves give each activity their own personal touch.
