As part of our centre's current programme "It's a beautiful life" we went on an exciting bus trip to the Botanical Gardens in Manuwera. What an amazing place for our children to explore, discover and delight in the beautiful gardens that we visited. As well as exploring a variety of garden areas we also saw ducks and eels at the pond, creepy crawlies hiding under leaves and rocks and a delicious lunch at the cafe before we headed back to our little centre for a much needed rest.
The Preschool children visited with the Infants Centre where a huge mountain of snow was delivered in the morning. The preschoolers went over in two groups, 4year olds, then the 3 years olds. It was priceless watching the children exploring the elements of snow. The children made big snow angels, snow balls, volcanoes, and many mountains. Their imaginations were able to run wild as there was no limit to what could be created.
The 3 year olds investigate with their hands, touching, squeezing, digging and scraping the snow.
Charlotte, 4 year old, preferred the pink snow better than the white snow.
