Welcome to the June edition of your Child in Whittlesea. In this month’s issue we have teamed up with IBK Photos, for our Winter Model Search. The Winner will appear on the cover of our August issue!!!!! All the details of the competition are on page 11. Welcome to Angel Lane who offer a beautiful and unique range of baby gifts & framed hand & feet sculptures of your precious one for a lasting keepsake to treasure forever. Your child can learn to spread their wings at Butterflies Childcare & Early Learning Centre or at Little Flyers Early Learning Centre. Are you looking for a school to enrol your child or children in – then consider Gilson College, St Pauls the Apostle Catholic PS or Ivanhoe Grammar. Talking Turtles Speech Pathology can provide Speech, Language, Literacy, Social Skills, Fluency and ASD assessments & therapy for children 2-18 years. I am always looking for some activities for your kids - why not try Bundoora Action Sports/ Inflatable World, Ready Steady Go's multi-sport program or Gymsports Academy of Movement and Excellence. Jump! Swim Schools is also opening soon n South Morang. Why not take the kids to the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle High Tea at the Langham Hotel! This month Frances and I went to Taunton Park in Bundoora for our“ Fun with Frances “page. If there is a park you would like to see included, please email or send a message on Facebook We would like to encourage kids to write in and share their stories, jokes and ideas. Children are also encouraged to have fun in our “Kids Corner”. We frequently have completions for our young readers, so keep an eye out for details in our magazines or on our Facebook page.

Fun with Frances

This month Frances and I had fun at Taunton Park in Bundoora. The playground features a main structure that has a wave slide, scrambling wall, standard ladder, steps, unusual shaped ladder, hanging disks, monkey rungs, horizontal bar and balance beam with obstacles. Next to it is a soft area with numbered circles, a shop front and a steering wheel panel. There is also a train springer, stand-on spinner, four swings and big atom shaped rope climbing frame. To one side of the playground is a shared concrete pathway with exposed pathways linking each entry point of the park together. There is also a large open grassed area and seating under large trees. While children enjoy themselves on the slide, swings and rope climbing nets in the new playground, or play on the half-size basketball court, families can use the picnic shelter, barbecues and drinking fountain. If there is park you would like me to review,please email info@yourchildinwhittlesea.com.au or send a message to me on Facebook.
