March 2017 - Fraser

We had a visit from St Johns Ambulance, which the children thoroughly enjoyed.  They were able to explore the ambulance with supervision and guidance from Dave the ambulance officer and the teachers.  

March 2017

Progress on finishing the new Maire building is progressing.  The deck is being built, the contractors are connecting all the services and there is some landscaping to be done to finish the project.  

February 2017

Last week the new Maire building arrived in two sections.  Some of us were up bright and early to see the second half of the building arrive.  It was fantastic seeing it slowly emerge up Hillcrest Road.  

November 2016

It is hard to believe that it is already November and nearly Christmas!  It’s a very busy time of the year for everyone.  The new building is being built at the builder's yard and the estimated time of delivery onto the Creche site is 23 January.

October 2016

We have been busy with our gardens.  The children have been learning about growing things as they have planted, potted and watered.  Our environment is very important to us all.  Watch for the sunflowers in mid-summer.  We have also been doing plenty of bug hunts, catching mostly worms which the children find fascinating.  

October 2016 - Fraser

Over the last few weeks the tamariki have enjoyed a couple of spontaneous walks around Fraser High School and Elliott Park. Excursions of this kind allow the children to explore new places, make connections outside of Creche, test their own abilities and develop confidence in new situations.   

September 2016

You may have noticed that our old Maire building has been demolished and the site cleared, making way for the new one to arrive later in the year. 

August 2016

Thank you to all our whānau who attended our Matariki events in July. The staff went to a lot of effort to put these on and we really enjoyed hosting the events. It’s a special time and the children really love having an opportunity to share Creche with you, their whānau.

June 2016

It is getting closer to our big move and we are getting more excited as time goes on.  Our temporary building is getting ready for us and we have started packing some of our stuff away.  A big thank you to Neil from the University for all his support and help with our new building, old building and our temporary building.  You are fantastic!

May 2016

We have had a very exciting month so far.  The Campus Creche Trust officially took over Fraser’s Little Feet on Monday, 9 May.   Yoshie from our Kauri centre won the Deaf Aotearoa NZ Sign Language National Award in Early Childhood and we are moving forward with the replacement Maire building.
