Mud mud glorious mud
International Mud Month happens in June and is a global movement which aims to encourage children and early childhood professionals to celebrate nature by getting outdoors to play in glorious gooey mud.

According to the World Forum for Early Childhood Care and Education an ever increasing number of children and early childhood providers participate in International Mud Month each year and use the day as an opportunity to get down and dirty in one of nature's finest toys.

International Mud Day traces its origins to the 2009 World Forum for Early Childhood Care and Education in Belfast, where two members of the Nature Action Collaborative for Children, Gillian McAuliffe from Western Australia and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal discussed the challenges children faced when playing in mud in each other's context.

Creating peaceful mealtime environments
The ideal mealtime environment in an early childhood service should be a relaxed and pleasurable experience for both the children and carers.

Establishing and maintaining a peaceful mealtime routine requires planning and the introduction of a few simple strategies, hopefully our tips will give you some good ideas as you work towards "mealtime nirvana".

Children thrive on routine and need to be fed regularly and on time. The food needs to be simple, easy to eat and tasty.

Relaxed meals in the child care services can help children develop good eating habits for life and may also help children learn to eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. It also gives children the opportunity to experience a variety of different foods they may not be offered home.
