Parent week – September Parent week now runs over 10 days from 9th – 19th September. Organic Kids are sponsoring Celia Hogan from Little Kiwis Nature Play to present a workshop titled ‘Improving Mental Health through Nature Play – The Early Years. We are charging a gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to The Champion Centre to support the amazing work they do for children who need a little extra support. Tickets will be available through Dash Tickets. There are some great speakers this year for parents of children from babies to teenagers. Well worth a look. Celia will be talking on Monday 9th September, save the date!
Discover. – Thanks for your patience as we iron out a few creases we have been having with the system.

Yes, we are the guinea pigs for the software for homebased care and we appreciate your patience with the issues that have come up. These all hope to be sorted asap.
FAMILY EVENT- Night Nature Walk- come and join us! We have planned in a family night walk (5.30pm – 7pm) with rangers from the CCC. Ranger Sarah is coming with her BBQ trailer and fire pit so we can toast marshmallows and have a hot sausage from the BBQ after we have explored the track and found hidden lanterns. The walk will start from the Nature reserve at 303 Radcliff Rd, push chair friendly (gravel track) on Saturday 14th September. We would love to have you join us!
