Our NIDO and Parent Toddler classes are back on site and we’ve all enjoyed being together.
For obvious social distancing reasons we now have the NIDO session on Monday morning from 10.30am till 12pm and the Parent Toddler sessions are on Tuesday morning, 9:15am-11:30am. This allows for smaller numbers at any one time in the same space. We really appreciate your cooperation in observing the Covid-19 health and safety guidelines.
It has been a delight to meet together after weeks of phone and zoom contact which was an interesting introduction. Thank you all for your trust and preparedness to roll with this.
The NIDO children are all at that wonderful stage where they’re finding their feet so to speak, i.e. crawling, pulling up or just walking and it’s wonderful to see their interaction and communication. Next term some more younger babies will join our session as well.
As adults it’s great to draw on one another’s experiences and share information about matters which are now relevant, i.e. what toys to buy, where? Health and developmental mile stones and discussions regarding helping the child to set boundaries which will greatly aid their social emotional development.
Thank you all for your warm welcome and I’m greatly enjoying being back in the Forestville Montessori School community and have enjoyed reconnecting with students, parents and some of the teachers as well as getting to know you who I had not previously met. We all share the spirit of being here for the wellbeing and education of the children, this same purpose is alive and well in our community.
May I wish you happy holidays and we’re looking forward to Term 3!
