There were food scraps, worm farms and compost bins at the Nambucca Valley Family Day Care educator training day on Saturday 6 April 2019, and that was before each service was presented with a sports kit full of activities for children.
The day was part of Nambucca Valley Family Day Care’s ongoing commitment to keep our team of educators informed and children engaged in learning about the world around them.
Each service was provided with either a worm farm or compost bin to teach children recycling food scraps makes valuable fertilizer for their gardens. A big thank you to Rhiannon Simmonds our facilitator from MidWaste who presented an entertaining session explaining the benefits and how to care for the worm farm and composting, for their support and ongoing advice.
The day just got better with Kerry Smith from Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) who presented the activity sports kits. The kits were made possible through an Innovation Grant from MNCLHD and were put together by Nigel and Jo-Ann Wilbow of Nambucca Head’s SPORTFIRST.
The group was also provided with an overview of business tax information, business deductions and tax planning by Andrew McManus, Partner in HLV Partners.
Nambucca Valley Family Day Care Supervisor Prue Cooper said, ‘learning through play and nature is an important part a child’s growth and we are really lucky to have the support of groups like MidWaste, our Local Health District and local businesses like Nambucca SPORTFIRST and HLV Partners. It was a great educator training day and we are already planning the next one.
