Educators and children in Coffs Harbour Family Day Care participated in the celebration of Naidoc Week in Coffs Harbour. Lots of activities and experiences were offered in the educators homes. Several educators joined in the community celebration.
Anne “Anne’s House” took the children to the library to celebrate National Aborigines and Islander Day. The Coffs City Library had a special guest telling Gumbaynggirr stories for Storytime.
Kirsty’s Family Day Care went on an excursion to the Coffs Harbour Show Grounds to join in the celebrations. The children experienced the traditional dancing, entertainment and culture and participated in the activities provided by all the other services on display for the day.
The small group size in family day care settings, provides educators and children options to attend community events-providing children with spontaneous learning opportunities and a sense of belonging in the community.
