GOING BEYOND T H E G AT E Our culture of taking children outside the gate aligns with our philosophy as we aim to develop partnerships within our local community to help foster a sense of belonging, for children, educators and others within our local area. In 2019, we partnered with Carlile Swimming Freshwater to offer the children and families of our service with a unique opportunity to engage in weekly swimming lessons through this joint initiative.

20

OUR LIFE FEB-MAR 2020 – HARBORD DIGGERS

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday our team of educators walk our Learn to Swim groups over to Carlile for swimming lessons. Carlile has assessed the abilities of every child in our Learn to Swim program from the very first day they entered the pool. Carlile Swimming Freshwater design each session to meet their needs and abilities, whilst supporting us in keeping them


“When we take into account our coastal location and that accidental drownings are one of the leading causes of death in children aged under 5 years, we feel learning to swim at a young age is extremely important. So many of our families are full time working parents who find it difficult to fit swimming lessons in around their work schedule whilst also trying to enjoy family time together on the weekends, so we feel this is a great offering for them to access – and they can follow their child’s progress as we upload videos of each session to our online family portal.” Sally, Explore & Develop Freshwater. Benefits & Learning Opportunities Regular swimming lessons assist in the development of gross motor skills, coordination and strengthens the development of both the right and left side of the brain. Not only does swimming support the development of physical skills, but it has also been found to benefit mental health and wellbeing as well. in their peer group which provides them with a sense of security. The program was created to provide: • Small intimate swimming groups to develop water safety skills and confidence • Familiarity and consistency in attending swimming lessons alongside their peers • Ease of access to extra-curricular programs for families • A sense of belonging to our local community.

We have seen such a positive response to the program and now have approximately 24 children attending swimming lessons through our Learn to Swim sessions every week, with a building waiting list of families wishing to access the program.

ANTI-AGEING

Only a small percent of our ageing is determined by our genes. Mostly it depends upon our overall environment, lifestyles and the daily choices we make including our thoughts, exercise and activity, as well as food choices. UV exposure tops the list in skin ageing and our recommendation would be to avoid the sun during 11am and 3pm and wear a good quality sunscreen when outdoors. Air pollution is best remedied by having a good home care facial routine that removes impurities and repairs the skin after your daily activities. A monthly facial to improve skin health will also begin to reverse any damage. 28

OUR LIFE FEB-MAR 2020 – HARBORD DIGGERS

Diet, we love the saying “I can eat a rainbow”, fill your diet with fresh fruit and vegetables in a variety of colours as they help to detoxify and neutralise some of the harmful effects caused by lifestyle choices. Calcium is of major importance as it keeps the facial bones strong and a good base for our facial muscles. Sugar contributes to ageing as it begins a chemical process that contributes to the skin lacking firmness, beginning to thin and for it to lose it’s smooth texture.


Slow down! Chronic inflammation is caused by stress and has a major effect on our skin health. Breathing in a calming beauty elixir of chamomile and patchouli or just taking 3 deep slow breaths can begin the onset of the body relaxing or book a monthly massage to unwind.
