Establishing positive community relationships is a strong value Cheeky Clouds like to uphold.
Incursions and excursions are highly encouraged and are a proven favourite with the children who are, and who have been in our care.
Incursions and excursions cater to the children’s curiosity and sense of wonder toward the world around them, whilst promoting positive interaction skills.
Previous incursions at Cheeky Clouds have included animal farms and responsible pet services. These incursions foster the children’s sense of wellbeing and further develop their confidence in communication and social skills.
Children participate weekly in a Yoga session at the service. Yoga is one form of practice which includes breath control and specific body postures that provides a range of physical, spiritual and mental relaxation. It teaches children to be calm, while gaining awareness of the bodies, self-control and discipline. When children practice yoga it increases their confidence, builds concentration and strengthens growing bodies. For children with behavioural issues, yoga can improve their impulses in a positive direction and provides them with an outlet as a way to manage their behaviour.
Cheeky Clouds are proud to have musical program Hey Dee Ho visit regularly, providing joy and entertainment to the children, meanwhile strengthening their development through movement and interaction.This program integrates entertainment from the presenter with active participation from the children. Assisted with the use of visual aids such as puppets, toys and felt boards, the positive response from the children reinforce the Hey Dee Ho musical programs popularity within our centre.
We highly encourage families from organisations within the community to get in touch if they would like their organisation to be a part of an incursion or excursion with our centre.
