Term 1 Newsletter

Hi everyone and welcome to a New term at Avalon OOSH.

What a wonderful time we all had over the school holidays. We were extremely busy despite a few families going down with the dreaded Covid.

The kids were absolutely amazing. We again had to adapt and think on our feet as a few of our activities had to be cancelled altogether or substituted. Thankfully our kids are made of rubber and bend to the occasion.
We sang and danced, we cooked and baked, we got very dirty and glittery. We made cubbies and home made swings. We ran under sprinklers and explored our own school grounds, going on treasure hunts. We had a lovely time introducing some “old fashioned fun”

We had a fantastic day learning new skills, woodworking and making our own lamps to take home. Our science day was an enormous success. The kids were talking about it for the next week. We had some great highs………our homemade playdough. And some lows……..the kinetic sand was to say the least…..interesting.

Of course the messier or the noisier the more fun was had.

We also welcomed a lot of new kindy kids who, we must say, surprised us with their confidence. I don’t think we had any tears and if there were, they were very short lived.

We are also very proud and pleased to note that not once were we asked for computers. They had been put away at the end of last year. The kids were obviously enjoying their fun in the great outdoors too much to bother.

Their behaviour on our Movie excursion was exemplary. Taking 70 kids to the movies is no mean feat, having 70 sit still throughout the movie is pretty incredible. We were extremely proud of them all.

Thank you to everyone who has booked their children for this term. Your booking does not roll over from last year. We are now fully booked Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for After School care, with a waitlist.
We only have placements available for Monday and Friday afternoons.

At the moment we have spots available for every morning.


If your child has any allergies or asthma you will need to fill in an action plan for 2022.
If your child requires an EpiPen you will need to provide a current one to be kept at the centre.

If you child has allergies and you would prefer to provide your child with their own afternoon tea, you are more than welcome to do so.
