Love a Good Preschool

I am a big supporter of Early Childhood Education and I'm a get involved kind of person. When we first enrolled our Muddy Organiser in Preschool I didn't hesitate to put my hand up to lend a hand and volunteer. At times the behind the scenes workings get you down, but more often than not I find it rewarding to see the enjoyment the kids and staff get out of events or fundraisers.

One of the BEST things I've been able to watch is the process towards renovating the outdoor space at preschool. It was already pretty cool with a bike track, cubby, massive sandpit, climbing equipment and a few chooks. What they've done now though is build the area into a more natural environment. There's a slide built into the hill and a climbing wall. There's going to be an 'outdoor learning area' and at the moment the Landscaper is working on improving the mud patch, so it will have donkey pumps and a bridge and all manner of get messy stuff.

I had a meeting last Thursday for the upcoming Trivia Night Fundraiser and all my Muddy Kids had an absolute blast exploring the updated area showing that it has definitely been worth the work. I feel so very lucky to have such a fantastic resource in our town, I know so many towns struggle with staffing and funding, so I am extra grateful this week for the fantastic Director, Staff and Preschool we have here in town.

Linking up with Maxabella at Village Voices for 52 Weeks of Grateful. It's definitely worth checking out, so head on over and have a look.


  1. Your kids pre school sounds great... My kids go to a community run kinder and having that input and all the families helping out makes for good outcomes!! Outdoor learning area sounds fab!!,

  2. Outdoor learning area is such a great idea. And that playground looks amazing as it is. The outdoor area is always the first thing I see at a preschool or school - the more natural and messier, the better!

  3. There is nothing better than a wonderful preschool... I say this because we LOVE ours too! You are so good to get involved with all your other commitments Nat, though I have come to learn you never make excuses when it comes to helping others out. A lovely character trait. The new developments sound fantastic, so good to have those resources available for your fam. Cute photos xoxo

  4. It looks and sounds fantastic.
    I know it's not for everyone - but I do agree that you get so much from becoming involved where possible.
    It's a bit of a win-win really.
    Happy weekend!
    :-) xx

  5. Looks like loads of fun for the kids! Great seeing what the community can do when the band together! Impressive x

  6. What a fun fun climbing wall. I love the multitasking at hand wi the baloon x
