Kia ora whaanau
Thank you for your support over the lockdown and Creche getting back to operating with tamariki again. It has been wonderful seeing tamariki returning after lockdown. Most of them have loved being back in their Creche routine with their friends and teachers again. Creche is so much a part of their life and they enjoy exploring our environment and having fun together.
At the AGM meeting Rowan, who has been on the Creche Trust for the past nine years, seven years of these as the Chairperson is standing down. I would like to acknowledge the many contributions Rowan has given to Creche during his time being a trustee. Thank you for everything you have done for Campus Creche, Rowan. The Creche community wishes you and your family all the best.
Welcome back to Whekī!
We have missed you all over the lockdown period and are excited that you can all join us at Whekī once again.
Our tamariki have all settled in so well – re kindling relationships with their peers and kaiako. They are all busy exploring the environment and showing us so many new skills that they have all learnt over the last couple of months.
Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou
Kia ora Kōwhai whānau
A huge welcome back to all our tamariki and whānau after an unusual time where Creche was closed. Tamariki are adjusting to being back and saying goodbye to their whānau as they leave in the morning. For some it is like they have never left, while others are adjusting to saying goodbye and being back. Please talk to the team if you are worried about how your child is settling. We are all having fun being back.
During the Covid-19 lock down period we said goodbye to Hilary who was working full time in the centre. We wish her all the very best in her new job.
We would like to introduce our newest staff member, Rebecca, who has been working at Fraser for the last couple of months. Rebecca and her family have strong links to Campus Creche as her niece and nephew are ex Creche tamariki, and her sister has also worked here. Rebecca is a fully registered teacher, with several years of experience in ECE. If you have not yet met her please introduce yourself or ask a staff member to introduce you. We really look forward to having her here with us and sharing her strengths and interests.

We hope that everyone has come out of the Raahui well and healthy. The Kaiako cannot wait for all our tamariki to return and start getting on with the rest of 2020. A big ngaa mihi nui to our Government who kept us all healthy and well in our bubbles and to all the essential workers that worked on regardless of the risk to their personal health.
The majority of our tamariki have now returned and picked up where they left off, playing with their friends, exploring our taiao and reconnecting with kaiako. They have all been so happy to see each other and have been busy catching up with each other and having loads of fun!
Kia pai to ra
Welcome back to all our whaanau. We have been really busy over the break making new resources, painting the centre, and doing lots of cleaning. We have a sparkly new Kauri with many new things for tamariki to explore.
Since coming back the tamariki have loved exploring the new wood elf garden, they have been helping Tim build new tables and a mud kitchen, watching the birds in the aviary (one is sitting on some eggs!), caring for the chickens, watching the tadpoles who are still growing, and catching up with their friends.
