Celebrate the season – yes its definitely  party & presentation time of year. Its really very heartwarming to see so many little ones excitedly practising songs and dancing to show their parents, talking about school next year or how they’ve had their birthday and now they’re a year older.
Celebrate achievement – let’s take notice and really praise and encourage our little ones on specific achievements, whether its saying thankyou, tying a shoelace, or being kind to a friend.
Celebrate the holidays – yes its nearly Christmas, and its definitely already summer!! Let’s make the most of whatever holidays or change of pace our work commitments allow, and really savour time with those we love.
Celebrate new opportunities – even though they may come dressed as hard work!! Take the time to look forward to a new year, new school, new uniform, new friends, new job or maybe a new outlook in the current circumstances. Make the effort to lay aside the pressure long enough to be excited for great new moments in store.
Oprah Winfrey has great advice for us to follow: “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
In short, celebrate!!

Let’s Play!!

Posted on 20th November, 2012 by Admin


Kids love to play. As adults, we tend to think we need to spend our time on “more important things”. However it has become crystal clear that play, while innocent, carefree and without agenda, is a crucial building block for learning, academic success, emotional stability and much more. Early childhood education across the board recognises the importance of play. The recent Australian National Early Years Learning Framework utilises ‘learning through play’ as key in achieving the framework fundamentals of being, belonging and becoming: “Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine …Play provides a supportive environment … play can promote positive dispositions towards learning … play enables them to simply enjoy being.”2.

There is plenty of concern lately about the detrimental results on society due to a generation of children raised to live indoors, in the company of computer, playstation etc. “Children are disappearing from the outdoors at a rate that would make them top of any conservationist’s list of endangered species if they were any other member of the animal kingdom. Contact with nature maybe as important to children as good nutrition and adequate sleep.”  4.  This is one of the reasons for the simple, yet crucial, purpose and approach of Smallsports – We want kids to love sport. We want children to have healthy development in every aspect of their lives and pride ourselves on providing a program that is physically, socially and cognitively stimulating.

President of the American Association for the Child’s Right to Play and professor at Hofstra University, Dr. Rhonda Clements, says, “It is important to maintain a healthy sense of play throughout childhood and into adulthood. Our complex society requires clear thinkers, playful attitudes, humor and creativity for complex problem solving.” 5. Evidence continues to mount about the value of play on individuals in every area of their lives, and therefore on society at every level.

So, in short, Let’s Play!!!

Moments and memories

Posted on 13th November, 2012 by Admin


It seems that November is a momentous month for us this year: awards at school presentation night, moving house, new jobs and everthing generally moving forward apace just now. A time of memory making which hopefully our children will remember fondly in the future.

So I took a peek & found a few other great November moments for us to enjoy:

November 1, 1512 – Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel paintings were first exhibited

November 2, 1955 – Jim Henson’s “Kermit the Frog” the first Muppet was copyright registered.

November 3, 1903 – Listerine was trademark registered

November 5, 1901 – Henry Ford received a patent for a motor carriage.

November 8, 1793 – The French museum, the “Louvre” was opened to the public

November 12, 1940 – BATMAN was trademark registered.

November 16, 1982 – The Space Shuttle Columbia completed its first flight

November 19, 1943 – Christopher Columbus discovered Puerto Rico

November 27, 1894 – Mildred Lord was granted a patent for a washing machine


Who can know  how history-making today could be? How many times do we look back on moments we’ve allowed to slip by without nearly enough celebration? Let’s make the most of today, savour our kids as they grow, and store up plenty of memories for us to enjoy when we make it to our front porch and rocking chair days!!
