Kidsfirst Kindergartens Burnham received a highly commended in the Engaged Award 2015, for the Kidsfirst At Our Hearts Awards celebrated at the AGM in May.
OUR TOP STORIES:
The judges said that this team place engagement with children, whānau and the wider community at the forefront of everything they do. Throughout the year the team have held many extremely well attended whānau events to celebrate children learning, to meet the wider whānau and to have fun.
Kidsfirst Burnham have established strong reciprocal relationships with their local school beyond immediate transition, such as sharing Kapahaka experiences. They make the most of the many opportunities to be involved and explore beyond the kindergarten gates, within their unique setting.
The teachers and children are often found learning in and about their community exploring the forest trees, sending stories and photos overseas, tracking down the noises they have heard from kindergarten of the army band practicing, the soldiers training, or the large military machinery moving around.
Congratulations to the Engaged team at Kidsfirst Burnham.
