Matariki 2020

June 1, 2020

What a lovely two weeks we have had at Kids Cave preparing and making soup in celebration of Matariki! Thank you so much for your help everyone!
A huge shout out and thanks to Dinsdale Countdown and the team for their generous donation of dinner rolls.
Thanks to our whānau for bringing in a vegetable over the past few days for our soup too. Most appreciated.
We began creating stars, Maori art and planting with the children for our displays to celebrate Matariki, while the tamariki are working on their creations we are able to share the meaning behind what we are doing. We hope you enjoy a snapshot into our day.
Happy Matariki and have a wonderful week.

2020 – Feb 28th – Let The Children Play

February 28, 2020

If you were to imagine an idyllic scene of childhood bliss, I have very little doubt that your vision would include some version of play. Whether you fancy running, climbing, dressing up, acting out a scene, playing on teams or building things just to knock them down, you too probably loved to play as a kid. Across all cultures, babies and children spend as much time as possible playing.
