Childrens Garden Kindercare


At Childrens Garden Kindercare, on the land of the Kulin Nation we will recognise and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Childrens Day by lighting a fire at which different age groups of children at our service will come to during the morning for songs, stories and cooking of damper for their morning tea.
Aunty Jacko, Gungarri woman will be visiting us and sharing the fire and damper and showing the children her cooloomon, we are very blessed she wishes to join us.
In the afternoon a group of older children will be in a workshop with Taylah Eid a First Nations artist and textile designer and they will bemaking Emu feather necklaces.
As the day goes on, parents will join children ages 3+ in a workshop with Taylah to make bush animals.
We hope our day fosters joy for all the children and strengthens community by inviting parents to share the special event with other families with the teachers, Aunty Jacko and Taylah.
We are inspired by the importance that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people place on keeping family and community together to grow children up strong.
Time together around fire, eating and enjoying learning a skill brings about awareness of the simple ways to connect with children in our busy lives. Time is the best gift we can give.
