On the last day of Term 3, the four to six year old group at the Waverley Montessori Preschool had a Robotics incursion. We had Simon come to show the children about robots and programming robots. The children learned the definition of robots and big words like algorithms. The children then had the opportunity to programme their own robot to find the treasure on a treasure map. It was a very educational and interesting incursion that is very much relevant to the future of our workforce. Hopefully the children learnt something new and maybe took an interest in a growing field of work.
Here are some photos of some of the activities the children have enjoyed this term at the Waverley Montessori Preschool. Our Montessori has a strong emphasis of Language, Mathematics and Sensorial activities as well as Practical Life and Cultural.
We encourage parents who are looking for a safe environment to enrol their almost three or four years olds in 2018 to contact us if they would like to observe the room during our session times.
Last week at the Waverley Montessori Preschool we celebrated Fathers Day by hosting a breakfast for the fathers. The children served their dads croissants, cereal and toast, and gave them a gift of a mobile phone holder they made at the Preschool. They also sang a song we had created especially for Fathers Day. The breakfast was on the same day as our pyjama day where the kids dressed up in their favourite pyjamas. It was so lovely seeing the children bring their favourite blankets or soft toys that must be part of their bedtime routine. We capped off the day by playing outside – now how often can the children say they get to play on the playground in their pyjamas!
Enjoy the (many) photos
