August 2017

Wow, August has been such  fun filled month, we had a lot going  on. Our 4 year olds planning for August was based on the Children's voices and interests, some of those activities /interests were arts and crafts, puzzles and team sports. The children got to expereiance something different everyday, with beautiful activites and a great set up.

Our 3 year olds planning for the month of August was Sea Creatures, they got lots off different activites to build their knowledge of sea creatures. They had muscles brought in to explore and they got to crumb and eat some fresh snapper filletes.

Another one of our highlights was our big Cultural Carnival with all 4 of our centres combined, we had such a massive turn out of parents, family and friends which was so great to see and all the children had blast with all the different cultural actvities, the jumpy castles, old mac donald farm and the food tasting.  children from all of our centres also participated in a talent quest and Kapa Haka which everyobody enjoyed to watch.

We finished our month with a big Fathers Day brunch. We had around 25 dads/caregivers turn up for this, it is so great to have so many of our parents support their children and get invovled with our centre events, so thank you for our parents who came. We put on special activities for for our children to do with their children. they had the jumpy castle, biscut decorating and got to make masks. 3 of our children got to go to PaknSav to buy all the food for the brunch, which they really enjoyed.

Well also farewelled our van driver Ryna, who has moved to our Marne Road centre, we wish her all the best.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this months activities.
