Growing our future

By Lyndall Judd | Preschool Staff


Ba Futuru preschool is bustling with children busy learning and teaching smiling and engaging them with fun activities. Term one has started with enrolments at a total of 37, with many children having recently graduated. We plan to increase this number over the next term.

 We started the year combining the two classes together at times for blended learning. We have been working on our Montessori maths program, with science experiments and inquiry-based learning. We also have been using a lot of the dramatic play, music, stories and physical movement providing both fun and insightful opportunities for learning and sharing together.

Both the teachers and children are excited for the excursions this term that focus on exploring places and people that create the local environment helping to establish identity, how we look after the natural environment, and the different occupations that contribute to making our society dynamic and resilient. Our upcoming exploration may involve coffee makers, carpenters, local fishermen and a beach clean-up in Beto Tasi, the fire station, and the local art gallery space.
