SOME OTHER STORIES...

 

 

 

 

Making that connection with kindy...a lot is said about 'community' but really, it all comes down to people.

 

 

Community has always been an important part of kindy life.

 

One of our parents, at Kidsfirst Mairehau, wrote this...


While driving down the road I said to my husband, "there is Jo from Kindy”.

 

My husband replied with, “you really are becoming part of the community, aren’t you!”


“Yes I am”.


Kindy has provided a connection to the community, and our family is delighted to be part of the kindy family and the Mairehau community. Joining the Parent Support Group (whānau group) has also allowed me to be more involved and get to know other parents better.

 

Through kindy I have met a number of wonderful Mums, Dads, children and teachers. We hope these connecting building blocks are the foundation of many years in this community as our children move from kindy to the local primary school.

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.



 

Often parents find they get almost as much out of the kindergarten connection as children do.

 

Sharing with other parents and making new friends has always been one of the reasons why kindergarten has been so popular.

 

It's been what kiwi families do for generations...
