Bugs are a big interest for our over two’s here at Central Kids Taumarunui Early Learning Centre this month!
Some recently purchased magnifying glasses and jars have been put to great use searching and observing any creepy crawlies that can be found. The interest has followed into home and we have had lots of interesting creatures brought into the centre by some very proud tamariki!
We are encouraging children to be kaitiake of our creatures and return them to Papatūānuku when they have finished their observations. We also have lots of pukapuka (books) out for children to look up information about the insects and bugs they find. Through this interest and exploration, children are developing working theories for making sense of the natural world.
