Welcome Back!!

A big welcome back to Head Start and an even bigger welcome to our new friends and families, I hope you feel welcome at our Head Start Headquarters. It was nice to have a little break over the holidays so I could do some cleaning and get sorted for our last term of the year.  This is always a busy term for families with concerts, bar-b-ques, picnics and coffee catch-ups.

I am not going to say it too soon but at Head Start this term we will be looking at 9 letters over the term which will spell out that special event at the end of the year so keep your eyes on the whiteboard as these start to appear and create that special word :)

We had a very successful time at the Baby and Child show and it was great to meet so many expectant Mums and Dad' s all in the same room (must be something in the water) and also catch up with some of our past Head Start families.

Have a great weekend and I am looking forward to catching up with you next week.

OH I almost forgot, A HUGE Head Start welcome to Becky who is a Physiotherapist with us at RATA South and is now going to take the Tuesday Head Start classes.  She is fantastic and you will have lots of fun with her :)

See you all next week
From the Head Start Team :)
