Good morning Moms and Dads!
Welcome back everybody, to the start of a new term, and with it, a new season…
Autumn has arrived!
As the seasons change, so too do we enter new seasons of expansion. Every season represents new life. Hope can carry you through every phase, every season of your soul… that’s what hope does. You hurt and you heal, you build and release, and it’s all part of the same process: it’s life. Each season is a signal that you’re not stuck. And even though you’ll lose some things, you’re strong enough to keep going long after you think you can’t. In the most unlikely of places, you make real connections. Grace finds you. You’ll see worthwhile things growing in the dirt of imperfection.
Where this season is going, why the last one had to end, or when the next one is coming… We don’t know. Stay grounded in the truth that every single shifting season brings with it new life. Another chance. An experience you’re here for.
“Trust the wait. Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible.”
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Brody, Ratu, Mathapelo and their families to our school! May we have a wonderful and blessed journey together as we navigate our way down this “path of schooling”.
The children have had a great second week back at school and are enjoying being in the company of their friends! They have been working on little surprises for their moms this week. Cutting, colouring, painting, threading… exposure to a wide range of activities. We hope you enjoy these gifts!
Below are some pictures of the fun that was had here at school during holiday care:
Children don’t just play for fun; they play to learn. The benefits of outdoor play for children’s development are infinite.
Playgrounds allow children to try new things, push their boundaries, get a bruise or scrape, experience winning and losing, and prepare for taking risks.
Free play on the playground also helps children to learn to communicate with their peers, pick up on social cues, and practice regular conversation. They learn about sharing, taking turns respecting boundaries, following rules, and staying safe.
As children dig, shovel, and pour sand into buckets or scoop and grab at ground cover, they develop dexterity and fine motor skills.
Children benefit greatly from the physical play involved with climbing, jumping, swinging, as well as the open spaces that encourage active play such as running, jumping, skipping and kicking balls.
Outdoor play is invaluable for a child’s independence and the development of their special awareness, vestibular systems, motor skills and core muscles.
Self-esteem is also built on the playground as children learn to resolve their own conflicts and practice achieving a challenge that they didn’t know they could.
Anything you teach in an indoor classroom can be taught outdoors, often in ways that are more enjoyable for children.
From the staff at Baby Blessings, we would like to wish all of our Moms a
May it be a beautiful day filled with love, kisses and cuddles, and memories to treasure. May you look into the eyes of your children and be reminded of a love like no other. The love of a mother. May you have a truly blessed day.
