National Pyjama Day
At Campbell Cottage, our children, parents, and educators had so much fun wearing their pyjamas on National Pyjama Day. National Pyjama Day is a day for educators and children to wear their favourite pair of PJ’s to help The Pyjama Foundation raise awareness and funds for children in foster care.
The money raised from National Pyjama Day goes toward helping support the learning skills of more than 1,000 children. It also helps to fund educational resources and help provide stable, positive relationships.
On the day, our children engaged in different learning experiences. At the same time, our educators explained foster care and how important it is to provide opportunities that encourage learning, life skills, and confidence. For us, Pyjama Day lasted for the whole week to increase the involvement of our children, families and educators.
Outdoor Active Play
Every day we encourage our children to engage in different outdoor active experiences. Regardless of cold weather, our educators ensure to prepare our children with proper clothing (jackets, raincoats, etc.) for outdoor exploration time.
Recently, the children have been enjoying different outdoor learning environments and interactions with one another through many different activities such as dramatic play in the sandpit, physical obstacle courses and sensory play in the garden.
