What an incredible night it was, at our 2015 Kidsfirst AGM. For the second year in a row, the At Our Heart values awards were presented to kindergartens and early learning centres that have gone above and beyond in exemplifying Kidsfirst's values:
Engaged, Inspiring, Proud, Passionate and Whānau.
OUR TOP STORIES
The kindergartens were observed over 2014 by the ESMs (Education Services Managers) who had their ears to the ground, and after much discussion, decided upon the winners.
Here they are:
The Engaged Award winners were Kidsfirst Hokitika, who were presented their award by ESM, Raewyn Penman.
Kidsfirst Cotswold Ave, with their Innovation Award for Excellence in Health and Safety. This is being presented by Karyn Willetts, Manager - Human Resources at Kidsfirst, and accepted by Kathy Harford, Head Teacher at Kidsfirst Cotswold Avenue.
KIDSFIRST KINDERGARTENS ARE A NOT FOR PROFIT ASSOCIATION THAT HAS DEVELOPED AND MAINTAINED KINDERGARTENS IN CHRISTCHURCH, CANTERBURY AND ON THE WEST COAST FOR OVER 100 YEARS - AS THE PLACE LOCAL KIDS COME TO LEARN, PLAY AND HAVE FUN.
