What have we been up to...

Soft furry and so cute.

 

One of latest exciting happenings at creche has been our little furry friends that all the children have been helping to look after, and watch hatch and grow under the warm lights.  The children have absolutely loved this experience, and it's especially nice for those children who do not have the opportunity to have pets at home.

MAKING OUR MATARIKI BAGS

OUR CHILDREN'S CREATIONS

This year at crèche each child got to create their own unique kete/ bags. Using fabric, paint and textured stamps, they chose how they would decorate the fabric. They have had opportunities to use technology like a sewing machine and an over locker to stitch them together. The children have already taken to using and transporting the treasures they find.

Eventually these bags will be used to bring in a variety of vegetables which we all will make into a yummy soup to share with whanau. Keep an eye out for our centre’s celebration to sample the soup for yourself.

What a weekend !!!


Thanks to everyone who joined in the 20th Anniversary celebrations. The children of creche worked to create the beautiful rainbow artwork which was gifted to the Community house to commemorate the occasion. It was great seeing so many of the people and families who have contributed to the creche over the years. Bring on the next 20!
