For those enrolled on Mondays you do not have to pay for Auckland Anniversary Day 28 January, and for those enrolled on Wednesdays you do not have to pay for Waitangi Day 6 February. There is a discount available for those doing full day sessions who use all their ‘20 ECE’ hours with us. Please collect your invoice from beside the sign-in book.
Big Heart Day: In Week 4 we are planning some Big Heart Day activities. This is a Heart Foundation initiative celebrating what it means to look after our hearts, and we will be learning and sharing about healthy eating and exercise. The main activities will be on Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd February. We would appreciate your support on those days by dressing your child in red clothing and providing as much red fruit and vegetables as possible in their lunchboxes.
Storypark: Thank you to those who have responded to their invitation to join Storypark, and also to those who have already commented on their children’s stories. As staff we are doing professional development in this area and it is very much a ‘work in progress’ scenario for us. With this in mind we thank you for your involvement and your patience as we learn together.
Koha: Brenda Te Wiata and some of her students from Morrinsville Intermediate School kindly made several clay objects and tiles for the kindy. These are now displayed around the kindy area so please have a look and enjoy.
Reminder: The kindy has a mobile phone in addition to a landline. For those who wish to contact us on our mobile phone the number is 027 525 8850.
