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.
