You’re invited to the next FREE HoneyKids Playgroup event and this time we’re exploring the outdoors with Canadian International School (CIS) on 23rd January 2019, and inviting kids aged one to five years (and their grown ups) to come and get messy with us: definitely not an event to be wearing your Sunday best to! Join us on an adventure at the CIS Outdoor Discovery Centre for plenty of learning opps, discovery and, of course, good ol’ fashioned fun! Bag your spot quick folks as it’s going to be popular, so mark the ‘HoneyKids presents Little Outdoor Explorers Playgroup with CIS’ on your calendar & RSVP stat!
Where is the fun happening?
More than just a playground, the Outdoor Discovery Centre (ODC) at CIS is a wonderful classroom offering a myriad of learning experiences to engage kids in sights, sounds, tastes and textures unique to the natural world. CIS understands the importance of outdoor play and designed the phenomenal kindergarten space with learning, exploration and hands-on adventure in mind: all crucial elements to solidify new learning concepts for little people.
Key features include a mud kitchen, vegetable garden, natural pond, art walls and sound garden: all the things we wish we had in our office! There’s also a bicycle track, grassy hills, tunnels and more to keep curious kiddos busy. Oh to be a pre-schooler again!
And what cool activities can we expect on the day?
Swing by (but don’t forget to RSVP here first!) the CIS Lakeside campus for a fun-filled morning of exciting activities specially designed with young children in mind.
- Muddy madness: Have fun in our mud kitchen making tasty mud pies, ice cream, muddy roads and rivers
- Eco pond exploration: Enjoy spotting all the different fish, turtles, dragonflies and plants in our enchanting eco pond
- Obstacle challenge: Boost your coordination and motor skills navigating our fun obstacle course
- Little picassos: Unleash your artistic skills drawing colourful pictures and contributing to a group mural on our outdoor art walls.
- Green finger magic: Learn how plants grow by planting tomatoes in your very own pot plant and then taking it home to watch what happens
Of course! This is a HoneyKids experience after all! Join us for FREE morning tea where we can all make new friends chatting over pastries, mini sandwiches, fruit and tea, coffee, juice and water. And don’t forget to pick up your fantastic goody bag, valued at over $30 – one for every family.
There’ll also be school tours for families who want to know more about the wonderful facilities, curriculum and ethos of CIS (don’t forget to register your interest on the RSVP form so we can co-ordinate for you on the day).
Join us and watch the CIS teachers direct, guide and lead the children… you *may* even just grab a moment or two of relative peace and quiet whilst your little ones get messy! Which reminds us… don’t forget to bring a change of clothes (maybe even some swimmers!): the kids WILL get grubby (and they’ll love it), but there will be showers on hand to clean up afterwards.
All the deets:
