Lighthouse at home Newsletter for October – December 2016

Hello to our wonderful Lighthouse Families,

This year has absolutely flown by and we can hardly believe there are only a few months left of 2016. There is so much to look back on this past year and yet so much to look forward to as well. Spring is here, Christmas is just around the corner and the opportunities that will come in the New Year are awaiting us all! You can also add our Lighthouse Christmas party to the list of things to look forward to as we have a very exciting day planned. 2016 was a year filled with delightful memories for Lighthouse and we have all of you to thank for them.

We hope you all enjoyed attending our most recent events including the Kidz Kingdom Party and our Lighthouse Baby Olympics. We had an awesome time with you and can’t wait to see you at our next events. For our Tips and Tricks in this newsletter, Emma is focusing on self-help. Fostering self-help in children is essential for their independence in later life so be sure to check this article out. Now that we are heading into November our curriculum focus is changing to Spring Fun and Christmas. As the weather begins to warm up it’s important to ensure that “slip, slop, slap and wrap” is taking place in your household before you step outside. That means Slipping into a long-sleeved shirt and into the shade, Slopping on plenty of broad-spectrum sunscreen, Slapping on a hat with a wide-brim or a cap with flaps and Wrapping on a pair of close-fitting sunglasses.

Don’t forget to have a look at the upcoming family-friendly events we have found for you on page 8!

Happy reading everyone!


Lighthouse at-home Newsletter August 2016

Lighthouse at-home Newsletter August 2016

Hello to our wonderful Lighthouse Families,

As we are now well into the winter months, we hope you are all keeping warm and healthy! Over the last month we have shared some exciting experiences as we celebrated Matariki together, went on a fruit picking adventure, and danced at our mainly music sessions! It’s a wonderful atmosphere when all our home-based childcare families come together to attend our free events, the lighthouse community is truly a special one to be a part of.

The change of seasons also brings a change in curriculum. As we see the end of sensory play, our little ones will begin to focus on the Rio Olympic Games. With the weather getting rainier, coming up with new ideas for entertaining the kids indoors can get difficult. Michelle’s tips and tricks will provide a range of creative activities that you and the children can enjoy. Happy reading everyone!
