Preschool Play is BACK for Winter!
A wonderful opportunity for your tamariki to play with big toys, be active and make new friends!
Every Tuesday morning, including the school holidays.
These FREE, casual attendance sessions are the perfect way to keep little ones active and socialised during the colder, wetter months, as well as being a great opportunity for parents to have a hot drink and chat.
Caregiver supervision is required, and the usual precautions are being taken at Covid-19 Alert Level 1.
Thanks to the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board for their support.
Sometimes our children can sound like a broken record wanting and, needing everything in sight! It is times like this when can find ourselves going a bit crazy wanting to run from all the demands. One major tip to help avoid this, is teaching your child the difference between ‘want and need’. By explaining to your child there is a big difference between “I need a drink” or “I want a toy”, you will help your child understand when it’s the right time to ask for something and, hopefully will diminish the list of requirements for you!
Is your kid nose-picker?
Deal with any allergies and dehydration issues first as these can make picking seem necessary. Teach your child to use a handkerchief or tissue, as the main problem is the spreading of germs from fingers straight to the nasal cavity.
My child can’t stop saying rude words! What do I do?
As parents we all will experience our children saying rude words, whether it is as small as be saying ‘poo’, or screaming a swear word in the middle of a supermarket. No matter the circumstance, it is our job as parents to teach the child what is acceptable language to use. When your child uses these inappropriate words you can…
1. Firmly explain this is a bad word and “we don’t use that word in this house”.
2. Set a rule that if this word is used again, there will be a punishment.
3. Ask if they understand this discussion you two have just had.
