At Bimbi Day Care & ELC, we have introduced Lunch Boxes in the Kindergarten Room! The children have been so excited to show their friends what they brought along in their lunch boxes for afternoon tea.
Introducing Lunch Boxes assists children with their self help skills such as peeling mandarins, unwrapping food packaging, opening and closing of food containers, and teaches them about healthy food options.
The Cancer Council have developed a “Healthy Lunch Box Builder” which is an interactive tool for parents to use with their children to plan and pack a healthy lunch box. It also has some healthy nut free recipes!
We are in the process of consulting Elders from Wurundjeri Tribe Council for the renaming of the rooms and embrace Indigenous culture respectfully.
The children and staff were very excited to meet both Auntie Gail & Auntie Julieanne this morning. Auntie Julieanne delivered a Welcome to Country with the presence of all of the children and staff at the service.
................. We believe that it is important:
:: To engage with Traditional Owners and work towards building positive and effective relationships between Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people.
:: To embed Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander perspectives within our service and programs.
Yesterday evening, we had Anne McNaughton who is Head of Junior School at Overnewton Keilor Campus visit our centre. Anne presented information to parents on how best to prepare their child for Prep transition.
