Bring a change of clothes – and a towel!

Summer-time is our favourite time of year. The days are longer and everyone is happy to be outdoors in the sunshine. And of course the most important thing about summer is playing in water!

We love water play! Water play is a sensory activity that combines learning with fun. Water play serves so many purposes – and not just to cool us down on hot days. Here’s a few reasons why your children will be splish-splashing with us this summer!

Develop Motor Skills

When playing with toys in a tub of water, children will increase their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination through actions like pouring, squirting, scrubbing, stirring and squeezing. Water play also introduces children to textures and temperatures.

Learn problem solving skills

Discovering the way water works will help teach children important skills. For example if they are watching a something heavy (such as a stick) sink in the water; or something lighter such as a leaf float, they will learn how and why things happen. This encourages imagination and develops creative thinking which plays an important role in problem-solving.

Increase language

Oh the stories children can learn, tell and make up as they play in water. Tales of boats and fish and pirates and mermaids. There’s so much adventure tied up in a tub of water; and your little one will love sharing and re-telling these stories when you pick them up at the end of the day!

Teach about science and mathematics

Through water play, children learn about measurements. We play games that teach them about the bucket being full, or half full, or empty. They observe motion and compare volumes. And all while getting refreshingly wet and having fun.

But the most important part of water play is that it’s fun! Water can be invigorating as they splash and make a mess, or can be calming and tranquil as they play quietly with toys or feel the water through their hands.

Kids On Beaufort have a great undercover area that we set up with water play activities that are safe and suitable for all ages. So when you send your kids to Kids on Beaufort this summer, maybe send along an extra set of clothes for your child. Because we’re gonna get wet!

I always felt so comfortable with Kristy when my son was in the babies room, so much so that I kept him in there longer so he was still with her! The genuine care and passion Kristy has for children made me feel confident that he was safe when the “mum guilt” kicked in for […]

Linda and Kristy are two of the most genuine, hard working and lovely people I know. They truly love engaging with children, and have a natural way with them. I cannot wait for their business to open so my boys can enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that I know Kids on Beaufort will provide.

- Bree Dimmock

I have been fortunate enough to have both of my children under the care of Kristy over the last 6 years. Needless to say I was super excited when I found out that Kristy and Linda were opening their own centre. Kristy exudes a natural affection for children and this was evident in the way […]

The two owners of Kids on Beaufort previously cared for both my children in before and after school care in their other child care roles. They were always professional, caring and attentive to the kids needs. I will gladly entrust them again with my children’s care in their new business.

- Alison Rawson

Kristy is a fantastic carer. The activities she plans for the kids and effort she puts in is amazing! My baby would cry when he saw her leaving, and it was so nice to know he felt so safe and comfortable with her and put my mum guilt to rest

- Jacinta Graham

I’m very much looking forward to this centre opening up! Kristy (one of the owners) was the sole reason I ended up choosing our current daycare (where she was working at the time.) She put my mind at ease and Abigail took to her straight away. I always felt comfortable leaving her with Kristy so […]
