Child Care News for Parents & Carers
April 14, 2021
Welcome, this week meet the authors of Frankie Goes to Kindergarten and your chance to win a copy of the book. Also, the importance of healthy eating at every stage of the pregnancy journey and while breastfeeding.
Introducing… Frankie the kindy dog!
If your preschooler likes dogs, then they'll love the new picture book, Frankie Goes to Kindergarten.

Based on the real-life adventures of Frank the therapy dog, this book follows Frankie through a fun-filled day at a fictional kindy. There’s playing and learning on every page, and back in the real world, Frank is busy providing care and companionship to the children at C&K Walkerston Kindy.

To learn more about Frank, we spoke with his owner, Peta Baxter. Peta is an early childhood teacher and director who created the Frankie book with her colleague, Connie Hemmens, and illustrator, Marjory Gardner.

Here, she explains how under-fives make leaps and bounds with a therapy dog around.
Nutrition advice for parents-to-be and breastfeeding mums
It's often said that "you are what you eat," and if you're planning, expecting or breastfeeding a child, then your dietary choices flow on to them, too.

Good nutrition decisions early on can positively influence your little one's lifelong health; and whether you're a future parent, pregnant woman, new mum or doting dad, there's lots you can do to help your child develop, grow and thrive.

To learn more about good nutrition during the parenting journey, we spoke with Leanne Elliston, a Program Manager and Accredited Practising Dietitian at Nutrition Australia ACT.
