Ark up­graded

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Staff, chil­dren and fam­i­lies from The Ark are em­brac­ing the new year in style.

Af­ter al­most two years of plan­ning, the Toko­roa Child­care Cen­tre Inc will cel­e­brate the open­ing of its newly es­tab­lished Waka Room and a freshly painted cen­tre.

Op­er­a­tions man­ager Jill Brillant led the bulk of the project on be­half of the man­age­ment team.

‘‘The Waka Room will of­fer a wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties, from pre­tend cook­ing to com­puter games,’’ she said.

‘‘One of our many fo­cuses is to en­sure we pro­vide spa­ces for learn­ing and de­vel­op­men­tal op­por­tu­ni­ties for all our varied age chil­dren.’’

The cen­tre was founded in 1989 by young lo­cal busi­ness peo­ple – Jill La­gas, the Brun­tons, Bus­fields and Gar­diners.

The cen­tre prides it­self on its con­tin­ued striv­ing for suc­cess and com­mit­ment to in­vest­ing in the fu­ture of Toko­roa.

New up­grade: Chil­dren from the Toko­roa Child­care Cen­tre – The Ark will en­joy their newly es­tab­lished class­room.
