SOME OF OUR TOP STORIES
Congratulations to Kidsfirst Kindergartens Vickery Street, the At Our Heart Proud Award winner, 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.
Being Proud is about knowing you've done your best and having confidence in the things around you. Our teachers are proud to be teachers, they're proud of their kindergartens, proud to say they work for Kidsfirst and proudly believe in what we stand for. And, in turn, we're so very proud of them.
The teaching team at Kidsfirst Vickery Street have made incredible changes to ensure the kindergarten has a positive, inclusive image within their community.
They prepare interesting resources and give boundless encouragement to meet the diverse learning needs at their kindergarten.
The team has a vision to teach and learn through a rich bi-cultural lens and to provide an environment where children have agency to lead their own learning.
Congratulations Kidsfirst Vickery Street!
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.
