Kia Ora,

Sadly we said goodbye to two of our staff members Len and Cecilia who have moved on, Len to start a new phase in her life and Cecilia to work in a Centre closer to home. They will be greatly missed and we are indebted to them for their commitment and enthusiasm over the years.

We also fare well Theo and Holly who have transitioned to the Tuataras. The kiwi teachers have loved having you both in the kiwi room, watching you both grow and develop, taking all your great skills, on your new journey. We wish you both all the best on the next phase of your learning journey. Read more

Visit to Havana coffee breweryOur Programme for the year has been a busy one with settling in our new children and transitioning the older children to the Tuataras. We have been focusing on their well-being and belonging.

As part of our group planning we would like to familiarize the children with the outside environment and community in relation to the centre. We would like to link the outings to a project that we can do with the children, or to enhance our own environment. (Outing policy and permission slips will be available).

So far we took a trip to Havana coffee brewery and looked at how the beans were ground. We also collected some coffee sacks which we used to cover a wall in our conservatory. Read more
