Editors Noticeboard Dear Reader Welcome to our April issue! Hopefully the heat wave we just endured in March is behind us and we can look forward to some cooler, more comfortable weather. As always we have some great reading for you this issue. Autumn in the Garden – a list of things to do in the garden over the next few months that the whole family can enjoy. On page 12 we have the final account by a mum on the Transition to High School. Lou Harvey-Zahra gives some helpful hints on how to handle situations when your child starts using the dreaded word ‘NO’. Also on pages 22–23 we have a special feature on Anzac Day including services held in Banyule and Nillumbik. Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder is our Editorial Business of the Month. This newly established centre is in the heart of our community and provides high quality early education and care. Organise a centre tour today – it is sure not to disappoint.

Editorial – Business of the Month

Our Kids, Our Future Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder is a newly established, resourceful, boutique centre, providing high quality early education and care to the families of Greensborough and the wider community.

Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder offers quality care for 6 week to 5 year old children and a fully funded kinder program for 3–5 year olds. Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder is a newly established, resourceful, boutique centre, providing high quality early education and care to the families of Greensborough and the wider community. It has a very welcoming and home like cosy environment. The management and educators endeavour to deliver the highest quality of care with an enriched age appropriate program coupled with a family oriented atmosphere for the children. The centre is following the Reggio Emilia approach. This means they believe every child is unique and has a distinctive aptitude, ability and talent. A positive experience in the early years lay a solid foundation for the rest of a child’s life. The centre is committed to providing a creative, stimulating, safe and motivating environment and raise children to be a valuable contribution to future society. This quality play based program furnishes endless opportunities to learn and practice progressive exploration and thinking, life skills for interaction, sharing and resolution and a scaffold to shape a positive self-image. 16

April 2013

The fully funded kindergarten program at Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder is led by a Kindergarten Teacher with a Bachelor Degree. This very well designed Monday to Friday (8.45am–4.45pm) kinder program incorporates incursions, intentional teachings and lots of fun based learning activities for 3 to 5 year olds. The teacher focuses on manners, learning behaviours, school readiness and personal achievements. The experienced, professional and rightly qualified educators facilitate, guide and extend these learning patterns in their everyday program. A dedicated Cook prepares fresh meals daily according to the Victorian healthy eating guidelines for children and cultural needs. Community Kids Haven Early Learning & Kinder is a beautiful addition to the Banyule and Nillumbik community and is worth considering at least one visit before making any decisions for the future of our bundles of joy. Parents can contact Connie on 9432 4033 to book a free centre tour or visit www.CommunityKidsHaven.com.au for further information.

IF YOUR CHILD CAN WALK, YOUR CHILD CAN RIDE! No more tricycle tip-overs or training wheel wobbles With the Strider Balance Bike, there are no tricycle tip-overs or training-wheel wobbles to create a fear, hesitancy, or dislike of bike riding. The Strider balance bike helps toddlers learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling, which develops glittering confidence. So ditch the tricycle and training wheels, and teach your child to ride a bike sooner and safer with a Strider. For ages 18 months to 5 years.
