Fun Thursdays

Returns to Avondale Heights Childcare & Early Learning Centre in Term 4!

Fun Thursdays continued at Avondale Heights Childcare & Early Learning Centre in Term 3 with much success and a happy time had by children, staff and facilitator Sarah.

Children continued to get to know each other in weekly name games and joined in movement, song and yoga-based activities designed to promote confidence, physical and vocabulary development.  Children were also introduced to the concept and fun of beat and rhythm while using a variety of hand-held percussion instruments.

Sarah is delighted to facilitate Fun Thursdays again in Term 4, 2017 – a program designed to inspire and foster children’s sense of confidence, teamwork and joy with music and movement in a group-based environment.  These sessions will re-commence on Thursdays from Thursday 19th October 2017 in the 2/3, 3/4 and 4/5 year old rooms, at 10.10am, 10.30am and 11.00 respectively.

Sarah’s Background

Sarah is an experienced Occupational Therapist and trained theatrical performer.  She has worked in a number of health and childcare settings for over 15 years, and has facilitated her song and movement sessions for children at Avondale Heights Childcare and Early Learning Centre since 2012.
