Highly Commended Engaged Award 2019

Congratulations to Kidsfirst Kindergartens Belfast, Highly Commended Engaged Award recipient for 2019, presented at the AGM in May. 

The Kidsfirst Kindergartens Better Because Value Awards, recognise the kindergartens, early learning centres and individuals who epitomise our core values.

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 Kidsfirst Belfast team have a desire to make the cultural narrative for their area a living, breathing identity by supporting their tamariki to become kaitiaki, or guardians of their local reserve.

Regular visits to their local Styx Mill Conservation Reserve have been enhanced by building on the notion of sustainability outside of the kindergarten gates.

The tamariki have been supported by Kaumatua Teoti Jardine to explore tikanga in their community setting, gifting the tamariki a karakia to greet Tane’s world of nature each time they visit.

More recently a group of tamariki and whānau returned to the reserve to help the council plant hebes and harakeke saplings, extending their learning story on sustainability and taking care of nature even further.

Congratulations Kidsfirst Belfast!
