Editors Notice Board Welcome to April 2013 we hope you have enjoyed the Easter Break and a few days off with family. Holidays are here and sometimes thinking of things to do with the kids can be hard. I love Spending time outdoors, especially when the weather is great! Two gorgeous local cafes you can visit during the holidays are Warrandyte Café where you can enjoy the outdoor views and Yarra Organics where you can enjoy a coffee while your kids play on the outside equipment. Both Cafes are child friendly and have the most beautiful atmosphere. Village Cinemas offers Mums and Bubs Sessions Only $10 Kids and Under 3 For FREE. Mums and Bubs sessions are great and you can enjoy a movie in a relaxed environment with other parents. I went last week and saw OZ The Great and Powerful, which is a spin off from the movie The Wizard of OZ. It was good to see they kept true to the original story and it also bought back my childhood which I enjoyed. Don’t miss out on the Templestowe Festival on April the 21st . Your whole family can enjoy the live Madagascar show, live music, fantastic stalls, Wildlife Xposure and much more. Tif your still trying to decide which Kinder, Preschool, Childcare you would like to choose to enrol you children in. There are so many to choose from in our area. Here are a few to consider, Cuddly Bear, Doncaster East Day Care, Warrandyte Road Childcare, Doncaster Early Learning Centre, Yarra Valley Pre School and Dinkys Kinder. All local and taking enrolments now. April Issue is jam packed with fantastic articles and the Business Of The Month is Spud Bar which has a healthy menu, also gluten free option and enjoy your voucher on page 9 that entitles you to a free mini spud with purchase.
