9.00am – 10.00am: Creative movement with Amelia
Let’s enjoy creative movement with Amelia!
Creative movement is not only fun and engaging but will help young children practice or develop coordination skills. Children will also develop musicality and importantly self-expression.
Amelia (Millie) Leach is a passionate young dance teacher who has extensive experience in performing and teaching. Having previously worked within the local dance community for six years, she has a strong enthusiasm for bringing opportunities for dance and movement further into the community sector. Combining her Certificate IV in full time dance, work experience and variety of performance experience (most recently WMTC’s May-June season of Mamma Mia and Scimm Dance Company’s ‘Nexus’ program), she hopes to foster a safe, fun environment for young movers to learn creatively.
10.00am – 12.00pm: Storytelling & music with Shyamalie
After having fun dancing, meet Shyamalie for storytelling time!
She is one of our amazing childcare staff. Her soft and warm voice will help children relax and restore energy. After storytelling time, we will have fun dancing to music and enjoying lunch together!
Shyamalie, originally a primary school teacher from Sri Lanka, has completed her Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Children’s Services, and is now a valued full-time staff member at YCC working within in our childcare service. Shyamalie is adored amongst our group of children, her kind and caring nature with children shines when she is with them.
