Kia Ora Koutou and welcome to term 2.

We have some fun in the pipeline for this term, parents are always welcome to attend any of our planned programme events, check out the ‘upcoming events’ section and feel free to join in, we love to see parents involved in the programme!

Mum2mum discount on wet weather gear! Our Forest programmes will continue over these colder months, so warm and appropriate clothing is paramount. Gumboots, hats and wet weather gear become a necessity, so the children can continue to explore and be warm and dry while out in nature. Organic Kids have a set of wet weather gear available for our Forest Programmes in every size for use if wet weather gear has been forgotten or not available. We have a childcare account with Mum2mum so we can order children’s jackets and overalls at about 50% of RRP. Please email louise@organickids.co.nz if you would like more information or prices. Check out www.mum2mum.co.nz to see what’s on offer.

Thanks for showing your support and understanding! We have had a busy term with new families and educators joining us, the measles outbreak and a still a few hiccups with our invoicing system. It is looking like this is fixed, we will be trialing the invoicing with the educators first and then rolling it out with families beginning of June. Our phones have been red hot all year with a good percentage of our enquires coming from you, our families. We want to thank you all for you own going support and spreading the word about us and your home educator.

Nature Play Conference Last month Bec, Lou, Sonia and Trina attended the Nature Play conference. This was a great day and a half of learning about all thing’s nature and outdoors and the many benefits this has on children’s emotional, physical, social and spiritual development. The outcomes and ideas were shared at our educator breakfast meeting last month, we are all feeling inspired with new learning and refreshed on the value of nature play.

Nga mihi – Bec, Lou and Charlotte

“Whangai ka tupu ka puawai” That which is nurtured, blossoms, then grows.
