Kiddy Canter

Each year, we have been fortunate to receive a grant from Telethon that enables us to develop an annual pre-primary programme on hygiene. This programme has a new story each year with Melrose Mare as the central character.  Large storybooks and resources are sent to registered Child Care and Pre-Primary Centres around August/September each year. For 2020, due to Covid, our Kiddy Canter programme was delayed and distributed in term one of 2021.  THIS IS THE LAST IN THE SERIES OF 7  KIDDY CANTER BOOKS.  ENJOY USING THESE ELECTRONIC VERSIONS.

The stories are available below as a power point.  We are working on having the stories loaded on to Youtube with a voice over so that the teacher/educator or parent is free to assist/reinforce messages throughout the story without having to be the storyteller.  The 2018 story, available on Youtube, can be found at the start of this page.

If you have any questions and /or would like to register for the free education kit please contact Abby on 0433 615 656
