We show how school matters
THINGS got messy recently at Mullaloo Community Kindergarten.
Teacher Cherilyn Hotchkin said the centre, which has been operating for more than 40 years, was a strong supporter of play-based learning.
“Our Messy Day enabled the children to use their senses to explore a range of substances, such as spaghetti painting, ooblec, shaving cream and edicol dye in spray bottles,” she said.
“Through the exploration of these activities, they become confident and involved learners.”
Mullaloo Community Kindergarten is looking to increase enrolments after the State Government increased the threshold for community kindergartens to access funding from 10 to 16 students. Call 9401 4595.
