NEWS FROM AROUND
Step outside any Kidsfirst kindergarten and you'll find playgrounds full of action and laughter, or quiet, restful corners. Gardens burst with pockets of colour or hues of green with native plantings inspired by nature.
At Central Otago Kidsfirst kindergartens, you'll now also find a beautiful new outdoor feature - a lovely, sturdy wooden garden seat that looks right at home nestled under a tree or sitting proudly beside the play equipment.
The garden seats were a special gift from the Central Otago Kindergarten Association (COKA) Board, to celebrate the merge with Kidsfirst Kindergartens.
When given the green light to merge into Kidsfirst Kindergartens, the Board of COKA wanted to celebrate all that was special about the Association before it was to be formally wound up.
It was decided to gift each of the Central Otago kindergartens the beautiful garden seats, set with an engraved plaque, to mark the transition.
This acknowledgement and gift was very well received by all of the kindergartens.
The charming new garden seats have quickly become a popular spot, enjoyed by parents and children alike.
