We finished 2013 on a high with a very successful visit from the Education Review Office. The ERO is the body that assesses the educational quality and content offered at places of learning. They confirmed our belief that we have a Playcentre which offers valuable educational experiences to our children by giving us the official stamp and some very kind words of praise. We were delighted and are dedicated to keeping up the standard of education alongside the other lovely aspects that make up our philosophy at Playcentre: to provide a fun and safe learning environment, to place value in the outdoor environment, to support the community from whanau to organisation level, and to respect and accept all persons.
Thank you to everybody who so generously supported our raffle in December. The winning tickets have been drawn and were numbers 7, 342 and 309. The winners have been notified and should be enjoying their prizes.
Our Christmas party was great fun. Thank you to those friends of the Playcentre who came along to join us. We will be starting back for Term 1 on Wednesday, 5 February. We are very welcoming of new people, so if you would like to come along and join in we would love to see you on a Wednesday and Friday, 9:15am-12:15pm.
