Head Start Favourites

Hello to all our Head Start friends and families.  Here at our Head Start Headquarters we love to change things around each week.  This adds to the excitement of coming to Head Start but it is fascinating to watch the children gravitate to their favourites. 

One of these is our tunnels.  No matter what way it is configured the children always look to explore what is hidden in there or if they can hide and play peek-a-boo. 
Have a great weekend and we look forward to another great week at out Head Start Headquarters
Cheers from the Head Start Team :)

Lovely Bubbles at Head Start

What a lovely week at our Head Start Headquarters this week.
Bubbles are a big part of the fun we have at Head Start.  They are great for hand eye coordination, fine motor control, gross motor control and are just heaps of fun.
This week we the letter "L" was a hit as the children had a go at writing the letter "L" on different surfaces, blackboard, whiteboards, magna doodle, light board, all great ways to practise their writing skills.  Why not play a game with your wee one and see how many things can you name that begin with the letter "L"??
Looking forward to another lovely week at Head Start this week.  See you there.

Welcome Back :)

Welcome back to Head Start Headquarters.  We hope you had a restful holiday and are ready for a fun filled term at Head Start.  A special welcome to the families who are joining us for the first time.  We have had a fun week back with lots of giggles of excitement as children come back for 'fun' at Head Start. 

 "K" was the letter of the week, so we did lots of kicking, were kind to each other, found the kangaroo and the kite on the letter sheet.  I made this "K" out of our pegs, and my sister-in-law has been making Lego words to help my nephew with his spelling, what fun ways have you found to make letters and words with your little ones?
We are looking forward to another fun term at Head Start and can't wait to watch the children explore all the fun activities that we have planned for the term.
Have a lovely weekend
From the Head Start Team.
