Preschool please speak with one of our Board members.
The teaching team attended the Early Childhood Council Conference at the Events Centre on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May. This weekend was packed with exciting workshops about partnerships with parents, ERO reviews, ideas using IPads and Tablets in ECE and much more. Preschool parents and teachers completed the satchel packing for the Conference and raised $300 for resources for the children. The teachers purchased some new dinosaurs and puzzles.
On Thursday 23rd May we had a bus load of Early Childhood teachers from all over New Zealand, China and Australia come to Preschool for a short visit as part of the Conference Centre Tours. We are pleased to be included in this tour promoting our rural Preschool as part of the Rotorua Centres Tour. This visit gave us a great opportunity to welcome our visitors with a song and some fresh baking.
