We’re starting a new feature on North Shore Mums whereby day care centres, preschools and all other primary and secondary schools can brag about interesting things they’ve been doing in the classroom. First up, we have Kindy Kids St Ives long day care and preschool, whose little attendees have been hatching chicks!
One of the children’s favourite experiences so far this year was the Living Eggs program we did in March.
The excitement of the children watching the eggs hatch and then being able to hold a tiny chick in their hands was overwhelming. The children learned about the lifecycle of the chicks and how to care and look after them. This learning brought out their natural curiosity and encouraged their thinking. It was a wonderful experience shared by staff, the children and their families at the centre.
We were very lucky to be able to watch the eggs hatching during the centre’s operating hours. After they had all hatched over the week, some of the adoring families volunteered to take the fluffy chicks home and watch them grow!

If your child’s classroom has been taking part in a fabulous activity they would like to share with others, please have the school email [email protected] with photos of the activity and a little about what they’ve been doing. We’d love them to be part of our LOOK AT WHAT WE’VE BEEN DOING! brag pages…
