This month two of our families have welcomed new babies to their whanau and to our playcentre community. Toby has warmly welcomed little brother James, and Oscar has delighted in the arrival of his little brother, Max. The two new big brothers have enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time at the playcentre with their dads, Seth and Sam, and to compare notes about their new babies. Congratulations to both families.
We had a very successful clothes swap and social evening. It was great to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones. With the proceeds we have bought the children a new ride-on tractor with a trailer and, as for us, we are all enjoying our new clothes! There have been requests already to do this again so watch this space.
Some of the children have been busy: Belle and Zara have spent time gardening; Nikau, Rowan and Toby have been constructing railways; Finn has been enjoying music; Sol has enjoyed using the popcorn machine to make morning tea; Matthew has had an interest in books; and Kamahi and Lily have become more confident and inquisitive one year-olds around the centre.
Our craft project for this term will be the construction of a dinosaur world. Please feel free to come along and spend the morning with us and see what we have to offer. Warrington playcentre is open Wednesdays and Fridays 9.15 to 12.15. We start term three on 23 July.
