Preschool cen­tres merge

Manawatu Guardian - - NEWS -

The early child­hood cen­tres Re­wanui and Wa¯ nanga came into the Pud­dle­ducks group in July.

Man­ag­ing direc­tor Hamish David­son said the cen­tres are known as Pud­dle­ducks Re­wanui and Pud­dle­ducks Wa¯ nanga.

He said the cen­tres had been in the Karaitiana-Ken­nett fam­ily for 40 years and were due to close.

“We have been op­er­at­ing for 20 years and the cen­tres were a mu­tual fit for Pud­dle­ducks Nurs­ery and Preschools.

“These are nice vi­brant com­mu­ni­ties and there’s a need for these ser­vices.

“We’re re­fresh­ing around the phi­los­o­phy and bring­ing in new re­sources, and the open­ing times will move to the more con­ven­tional hours of 8am-5.30pm.”

Re­wanui on Rus­sell St is li­censed for 30 chil­dren and Wa¯ nanga on Ward St has places for 40, and there are spa­ces avail­able at both cen­tres.
