  1. Wow Kate, looks like an amazing week!

    Is the playgroup and preschool the same? Or does Jack go to a preschool and also participate in a playgroup?
    Both looks amazing places anyway!

    I love the underwater play. This one sure looks appealing to me

    1. It was a great week 😀 Preschool and playgroup are separate; Jack goes to preschool and Sarah goes to playgroup. At the moment I am coordinating the playgroup so I get to organise lots of wonderful activities using the enormous variety of resources and materials on offer, it’s such fun. Jack’s preschool spends one morning a week in the bush. The kids climb trees, play in the mud, explore ants’ nests, it’s wonderful and Jack loves it. We are very fortunate to live in a place which has such a preschool, it is quite a unique place.

  2. Oh and btw, my copy of “project based homeschooling” is starting to look just like yours.
    I think I have read it 3 times in a row. It makes perfect sense. All of it.

    1. I LOVE IT!! Very rarely do I find a book which I agree completely with, am inspired into action and have the tools to get going. It is truly a great book.

  3. Looks like you all have a fun fun time together. Can you let me know where I can find directions for the ‘vinegar and baking soda in a spray bottle’ instructions please? Thanks so much

    1. Hi Marsha. This is one of our favourite activities. I just pour some white vinegar and water (I’m not too exact on the measurements 🙂 ) into a spray bottle, add a little food colouring, and then spread out the baking soda onto a tray or a tub. The spray bottle makes tiny little fizzers on the baking soda. I like it because the activity last a lot longer than if you were to pour the vinegar/water on like in the traditional experiment. It’s also fun to use with little pipettes.

  4. I’ve just become room leader at a todder daycare centre, I have my diploma and am studying my Bachelor Degree. I almost cried when I came across your blog, especially when I realised you’re based in Canberra (as am I). Thank you for the incredible Reggio inspiration!

    1. Thank you so much Cate 🙂 What a wonderful opportunity for you. I think that would be such a fulfilling position. I hope it is all going well for you. Does the daycare centre follow a Reggio-inspired approach?

      1. Unfortunately no. They see the benefits of it. So hopefully I can transform the room and make it a more natural and child centred environment – and convince them to try as well.

        1. I think as soon as they see the children working in an engaging environment they will be convinced too. It is a pretty big change in thinking and I know for me at least it took me a while to really let go of being a leader and becoming a mentor directed by my children’s spontaneous curiosity.
