Edi t orsLetter EditorsLetter Welcome to the April Issue of the Your Child in Whittlesea Magazine. I am sitting here wondering if others also think its crazy that this time last year life was shutting down and now a year later my family life is busier than ever. It feels like we are trying to fit a full year into first term, and to top it off Easter School Holidays are already here! The magazine this month has some fantastic articles, on page 6 ‘I hate reading!’ helping parents to find ways to help their children who are finding read difficult. We have an interesting article ‘Dealing with morning sickness,’ on page 14 and ‘Respiratory Illness in Children’ an important article to help us to recognise when our little ones are unwell as we head towards winter, can be found on page 26.. Hanging with Hannah can be found on page 10. Hannah is out visiting the newly built Mill Park All Abilities Playground. This playground is amazing, it has lots of different play space which allows for many fun adventures. This month’s Kids in the Kitchen Mini Chef is Dexter, who has been busy creating some yummy Easter Egg Cookies, see page 25 for the recipes. In this month’s What’s On - we are sharing all the Local ANZAC Day Service information.

Remember we welcome contributions from our readers and their children. If you have something that may be of interest to your local community, please share it with us. Maybe you are part of a community group with an upcoming event that could be included in What’s On. I hope you enjoy reading the April Magazine,

Rachel Thank you for taking Your Child in Whittlesea into your home and please support local business

h a n n a H h t i w g Hangin Mill Park All Abilites Play Space Morang Drive, Mill Park

Hannah didn’t want to go to the park this month, she wanted to stay home and play Ipad games ... un l we arrived at the Mill Park All Abili es Play Space! 4 hours later, with rain ... we had tears while trying to leave! The playground has play equipment for all ages and play levels. There is a bush play space, flying fox, swings galore, climbing equipment, monkey bars, trampolines, sew-saw and slides. There is 2 covered areas for par es, seats, tables, bbqs, bins, a basket ball court plus toilets and change rooms. The highlights of Hannah’s day to the park were the surprise water play area and finding her school friend Mahalia in the playground and wan ng to do everything all over again with her. Hannah’s p for the month - don’t forget your bathers and a towel for the water play area!
