Every Child a Talker!

There's a lot to talk and read about as the children at the Catholic Early Learning Centre, Stanhope Gardens get stuck into their garden project, in earnest! Grace, nominated her strawberries as a healthy fruit!

Elena and her friends are wondering when the strawberries will be ready to eat?
Charlotte suggested that a sign be made to keep 'little feet' out of the garden!

Harry is keeping the Spring Onions alive by watering them with his orange watering can!

 AND ...
James  Scarycrow (a name voted on by the children) is about to venture out into the garden ... watch this space!

A Mind of Its Own!

The children at the Catholic Early Centre at Stanhope Gardens were excited to discover that one of their strawberries decided to grow leaves on the outside of the fruit! A great opportunity for Discovery Learning ... "WHY IS IT SO?" "WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?" "I WONDER WHAT IT WILL TASTE LIKE?" "WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?" "IS IT REAL?"

Isn't Nature Wonderful!
