Earlier this month our Beaumaris kindy team had the pleasure of hosting a super fun, hands on and educational incursion from an Eco Faerie!
The team of eco faeries are leading the way to inspire a green generation.
The children learned all about different waste and what can be turned into compost to use for planting. We planted our own beans to take home and sang some fun and catchy songs to remind us about being pro-active, greener and more sustainable!

To celebrate National Dental Health Week 2019, we spent some time teaching our kids at our Dianella centre about dental hygiene – including how to brush and floss.
Dental Health Week, which takes place in the first full week of August, is the Australian Dental Association’s annual major oral health promotion campaign. Its aim is to educate Australians about the importance of maintaining good oral health in throughout their lives.
Each year across Australia, the Children’s Book Council of Australia brings children and books together to celebrate Book Week.
Kicking off on Saturday the 17th August, this year’s theme was “Reading is My Secret Power”! and we celebrated with book readings and displays all week at KidzBiz on Monash!
On September 6th, we celebrated Early Childhood Educators day!
This annual event honours the work of Australia's educators in early learning services for their wonderful contribution to the wellbeing and healthy development of the young children in their care.
We want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to our passionate team of educators across all 4 of our Early Learning Centres and all 5 of our Out-Of-School-Hours care.
We are so blessed to have such a lovely, caring team who give their all every day they walk through the doors!
Each of our centres hosted a lunch for the team complete with gifts.
In early September, our Wanneroo centre hosted an afternoon tea in celebration of Father's Day.
Luckily the weather was on our side so we got to spend some time outdoors with our dads. We loved having you in!
Check our Facebook post via the link below for some pictures of the day.
On September 12th, we wanted to raise awareness of mental health in support of our families and staff on R U OK day.
This day highlights how important it really is to check in with your family and friends and ask the question: are you okay?
You never know... it may just save a life.
Some of the snaps from the day are over on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/KidzBizPerth/photos/a.492853764152474/2173413909429776/?type=3&theater.
On Saturday June 29th, our Wanneroo centre invited families and friends along for a beautiful morning tea to help raise funds for the Cancer Council.
The morning was filled with tea, tasty treats and raffle prizes for some lucky winners.
The annual event aims to raise funds for our families who are directly affected by cancer. These funds go towards life-saving research, prevention,support programs and information.
Amazingly, our event was one of 19,000 that took place across the country this year, according to https://www.biggestmorningtea.com.au/.
We would love to thank each and every one of you who came along.
Stay tuned for next year’s event!
