Preschools take the lead

Bay News - - NEWS - Re­becca Mauger Se­nior re­porter

This week’s Bay News has the cute fac­tor with three sto­ries on early child­care fa­cil­i­ties do­ing great things in the com­mu­nity.

First up is our lead story about Te Puna Kinder­garten who came up with the idea of cre­at­ing a cook­book with lots of scrummy recipes con­trib­uted from fam­i­lies. The name of the book is Grounded in Good­ness and there is a real em­pha­sis on healthy in­gre­di­ents. It’s a fundraiser for their new build­ing and is hot off the press and ready for dis­tri­bu­tion.

We have also ac­knowl­edged the ef­fort made by Otu­moetai Play­cen­tre fam­i­lies who were re­cently recog­nised as be­ing 92 per cent waste free. It’s more than just re­cy­cling for this play­cen­tre— they have some im­ple­mented some clever ways of keep­ing waste down.

Lastly, we have a lit­tle story on Toi Ohomai Child­care Cen­tre who are hav­ing a fun open day this week­end to cel­e­brate 30 years as a cen­tre.
