Kidsfirst Mount Pleasant cook up a storm.

Every so often throughout the seasons mother nature throws us a curveball and we have to batten down the hatches. What better way to ride out a storm at kindergarten than getting together to cook.

 

 

FIND OUT WHY WE'RE JUST BETTER BECAUSE...

 

 

 

 

 

For young children experiencing some of life's curly adventures for the first time - like a major weather event - it can seem downright daunting!

 

With ex-tropical cyclone Gita was forecast to make landfall on the South Island's West Coast before barrelling through the top of the South, many families arrived at kindergarten a little uncertain about how severe the storm would be across our regions.

 

“We could see that some of our children were needing a little extra reassurance,” says Kidsfirst Mount Pleasant Head Teacher, Liza Hewison. “So we decided to make waffles for morning tea.”

 

 

 

 

“We are aware that gathering together as a group to make and share food can help lift people’s spirits on days like this,” says Liza. "We popped on the heat pumps to stay cosy and cooked up a storm!"

 

What a delicious way to help calm nerves and warm hearts!
