Warrington Playcentre

By Ed Bickerstaff

Kia ora Koutou from Warrington Playcentre

We hope you are all keeping warm and cosy as the days shorten
and grow colder. Matariki will reappear soon in our night skies
and we are looking forward to making lanterns and joining the
school in the week of June 8 for the lantern walk and New Year
celebrations.

On June 11, at Warrington Playcentre, Kaitrin
McMullan will be weaving her storytelling magic with a Matariki
theme at 11am. All preschoolers and caregivers are welcome to
come and listen.

Our new group of youngsters is beginning to make Playcentre
their own and are introducing us to sign language, calligraphy and
Japanese phrases (amongst other things). The older children
have been making the most of the fine weather, playing in the
sandpit, putting out fires, driving a fire engine (thanks to Christine),
and introducing the younger ones to the pleasures of riding a
motorcycle down the concrete path.

I love this cultural transmission between the children and the
expanding, changing nature of Playcentre.

It was great to see our old Playcentre children back for a visit from
Warrington School. Thank you for your lovely songs. Thanks also
to Blueskin Bay Library, which brought over a selection of books for
our children to enjoy.

Happy third birthdays to Reuben, Ella and Arlo, and for Phoebe
and Roland's upcoming birthday celebrations.

Warrington Playcentre is open Wednesday and Friday 9.15am - 12.15pm.
All welcome, children under two-and-a-half free.
