We are kicking off the year with a fun family picnic to celebrate Organic Kids turning one and to thank you all for your support in our first year of operation. We were granted our full licence from the Ministry of Education early December and we were proud to show them the quality of our educators programmes and the policies and procedures we have been following. Thanks to all the educators and families involved in this process!
We are currently reviewing three policies. The Laundering policy, Healthy Eating policy, and the Health and Safety policy. Policy review will be an on-going process and we appreciate your input and thoughts on these. Policies under review are available on the secure section of our website, use the code orGanic to review policies. Please take the time to read over them and offer any suggestions. Feel free to ask questions or come back to us with feedback.
Playgroup and Forest Education
Our playgroup at Burwood Plunket rooms will continue at Burwood Playgroup on a Tuesday morning throughout 2016, including the school holidays. Starting back on Tuesday 19th January. Come along and join in on the FUN! All parents welcome

Forest Education is where the children have opportunities to explore the many natural environments we are lucky to have close by in our local community. This will include native parks and reserves, forests, and other outdoor natural environments. If you come accoss any that you would recommend, please let us know, your ideas and input are appreciated. Forest Education soon to start in Oxford.
It’s an exciting start to the year for us with four new educators joining our team. We would love to welcome Lynne in Silverstream – Kaiapoi, Michelle in Parklands, Mel in New Brighton, and Lauren out in Oxford. We are looking forward to them joining in on our programme outings and events!
