Over the week of the 21st of August, our Milestones centres celebrated book week through the power of dress up, imagination and creativity as our Educators and Teachers developed learning experiences inspired by the books the children read every day.
Milestones Early Learning Caboolture provided a variety of sensory experiences and themed dress-up days like Superhero Day and Dress like a Pirate Day.
Rhyanne Moy, Centre Manager at Milestones Caboolture, shared, "The children's favourite activity was definitely dressing up as superheroes and hanging from the forte pretending to be Spiderman, our most popular character of the day!
"These activities developed communication, developing a sense of belonging while furthering their own sense of personal identity."
The centre decided to combine both Book Week and Talk Like a Pirate Day, which is usually acknowledged on the 19th of September. Combining a Week of fun and dress up with a day that raises awareness and donations for a wonderful cause, Catherine Morse, Lead Educator in the Senior Studio, shared, "It was an opportunity for children to celebrate a day where we raise awareness for childhood cancer support in a fun way as well as celebrating book week."
All our centres provide a variety of reading practices for the children in our care and ensure that this invaluable skill is developed during a child's Early Childhood Education Journey.
