On Friday 24 June the children at Kool Kidz Mill Park participated in the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco from 10am to 11am. Little Rockers Radio provided the tunes for the children to dance along to. The children also dressed in red to support Red Nose Day and purchased items from the Red Nose Day merchandise box and donated a gold coin.
The children at Kool Kidz Mill Park also undertook different activities other than the Red Nose Disco. The Honeybees children did red finger painting, the Beetlebugs children did red paintings, red glitter pastings and red collage pastings, the Jitterbugs children made red pasta necklaces, and Butterflies/Kindergarten children made red play dough and cooked red pancakes. The children were able to enhance on their fine motor skills through these wonderful experiences organised by our amazing educators.
Red Nose Day supports SIDS and Kids which is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood and supporting bereaved families. They are a not-for-profit organisation that was created in 1977 to support families who had experienced the death of a baby from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Our service utilises the resources provided by the SIDS and Kids website including the SIDS and Kids Safe Sleeping. This is an evidence-based health promotion campaign developed for health professionals, childcare workers, new and expectant mothers, parents and anyone who cares for babies and infants. The campaign has been developed in conjunction with researchers from Australasia and internationally and provides information about the evidence around sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) risk reduction and fatal sleeping accidents.
SIDS and kids recommends the following in relation to how to Sleep your Baby Safely:
1. Sleep baby on the back from birth, not on the tummy or side
2. Sleep baby with head and face uncovered
3. Keep baby smoke free before birth and after
4. Provide a safe sleeping environment night and day
5. Sleep baby in their own safe sleeping place in the same room as an adult caregiver for the first six to twelve months
6. Breastfeed baby
