April 2016

The Easter Bunny visited Creche on Thursday, 24 March handing out Easter eggs.  The rainy weather did not put the Centres off from having a fun day making bunny ears, painting faces and eating hot cross buns.

March 2016

March is a busy time for so many people who are part of the University community.  There are lots of happy children around Creche who have settled in to the routine of being “Creche little people”.  This is so pleasing to see.

February 2016

It is hard to believe we are well into February.  Lots of new children are starting as well as old faces returning after their summer break.  A big welcome to you all and we hope you enjoy your time being involved with Campus Creche. 

January 2016

A big welcome to you all as we start 2016. I hope you have all managed to have some rest and relaxation during the summer break. I know it is always busy with little ones in a household. Lots of the tamariki seem very pleased to be back in their routine of coming to Creche and are enjoying being with their friends and having lots of fun. We have an action packed year planned and hope 2016 is a good year for you with your study, work or managing family life.

December 2015 - Newsletter

This is the last newsletter for the year.  We have thoroughly enjoyed watching your children grow and develop since last summer.  2016 is shaping up to be an exciting year as we are planning to build a replacement building for Maire and upgrading the Whekī building.  

October 2015 - Newsletter

It is a great time of the year with the spring blossoms everywhere, baby animals to watch, longer days and the children being able to play outside more. Plans are well under way for our ‘not to be missed’ Christmas Party (more details later in the newsletter).

September 2015 - Newsletter

It feels like the year is rushing by at an alarming rate.  It is already September and the end of the year is fast approaching.   Everyone is working hard to meet guidelines for the end of the year. I hope we can help you in any way we can as you balance busy work and family life.

August 2015 - Newsletter

It’s that time of the year when wet, cold weather is common place and keeping our children warm and dry means that sometimes they may feel a bit ‘hemmed in’.  But when the sun comes out, we love to get them outdoors to play.  We appreciate all the extra sets of clothes, shoes and warm gear you send along to help us pair outdoor exploration with staying warm and healthy.

July 2015 - Newsletter

It has been great catching up with some of you as we have celebrated Matariki in each centre.  Attendances have been high this year and we all appreciate you making the time to share this special occasion with us and your tamariki.  

June 2015 - Newsletter

I hope you are all managing to keep warm in this frosty weather.  There are some wonderful opportunities for children to learn so much and enjoy interesting conversations with frozen puddles and white frost everywhere covering the trees and grassy areas.
