It has been a busy start to the new year. Our new playground is complete and has been well explored. Eight new children have settled in. Older children have eventually returned for the new term. It is all about the old and the new - older children, new playground - new children, older and still exciting resources. Older children teaching new children. New Children contributing to groups, evolving older friendships into new groups. We are all adapting, exploring, negogiating, discovering, bonding, learning, contributing and building a strong kindergarten community. Tania is away relieving at Riverside Kindergarten, and Wendy has found her niche again at Manaia while Tania is away. Its all new, and its all old, and its exciting. Check out our busy first 10 days of 2009!
