Premier's Reading Challenge Celebration

Throughout 2020 each of the children's programs have been taking part in the Premier's Reading Challenge - many books have been read and re-read, both in large groups and as one x one interactions.  We are really pleased to say that we will be celebrating these reading achievements together with a formal presentation for the 3 and 4 year old rooms on on a date to be confirmed ... look out for your invitation to attend.

Twilight Working Bees

Twilight Working Bees are tentatively booked for small groups in November.  In the interim, there is opportunity for small pockets of time for simple working bee tasks to be completed prior to the collection of your child from ACC (check in with the office if you have a few moments to weed a garden bed or clean a window).  Further information about the Twilight Working Bees will be forthcoming as COVID-19 restrictions are eased.

ACC Sleep Over

The annual 'ACC Sleep Over' will be held on a weekend to be determined (tentatively in November 2020).  There will be games and movies, a talent quiz and slumber party sleeping arrangements, all co-ordinated and supervised by senior educators here at ACC.  So if your currently enrolled ACC child is aged  3+ years, and you think they may enjoy a sleep over at ACC, contact the office for further details .

NB:  Places are limited to the first 15 children to return their forms and make payment for their sleep over position ...

End of Year Celebration

We are still looking at options for how our end of year celebration can go ahead in this year of COVID.  Further information will be sent electronically to Families currently enrolled at ACC in regards to any plans that are put in place for the Centre's End of Year Celebration.  We look forward to celebrating successfully navigating through the year that was 2020 with you all as the December approaches!
