SOME OF OUR TOP STORIES
Congratulations to our Engaged Award Winner, Kidsfirst Kindergartens Templeton, recognised in the 2017 At Our Heart Awards, presented at the AGM in May.
Our values are very important to us as an association and we're so proud to be able to celebrate them in this way. The value of Engaged is all about connecting with people, places, opportunities, ideas and our heritage.
The team at Kidsfirst Templetion provide children with many opportunities to be engaged with their local and wider community with group outings to places such as Tuamutu Marae, Waihora, the eeling farm and Mitre 10 to buy new plants for the garden.
Tamariki embrace opportunities to be involved in the planning and the evaluation of these outings and whānau are highly involved as well.
This is all linked to a very strong growing bicultural awareness, connection and knowledge of place as well as reflected and revisited through children’s art work and drama.
Congratulations Kidsfirst Templeton.
Although we celebrate these values each year with awards and certificates, we know that tamariki, families and communities see the behaviours and commitment associated with our values every day, in so many different ways in all of our wonderful kindergartens across the network. So congratulations and keep doing what you're doing so well.
