Easter fun at Kids at Home

SuperUser Account 0 550

Just before Easter, the Kids at Home (Waikato) family visited Minogue Park to not only celebrate Easter, but to just generally enjoy what was left of the summer sun!

Educators, children and parents alike had a fabulous time at the playground on the flying fox; in the sandpit; playing with the water features; sliding and climbing.

And then... our Easter Bunny turned up! All soft and white with a pink tummy, our Easter bunny had the cutest face and was very, very cuddly! The children were so excited to gather round the Easter Bunny; to cuddle and have photos and to choose a couple of Easter Eggs out of the Easter egg basket.

New playgroup venue for Kids at Home

Kids at Home are excited to share our new playgroup venue at Devon Road, Frankton.

This was a big project for our team, with extensive internal and external refurbishment, and we’re really proud of the outcome.

Inside we have added Autex to the walls, painted the surfaces and had new floor coverings laid. Our Visiting Teachers have worked hard to set up individual areas for family play, infants, blocks, books and puzzles, art and messy play. We've also updated the equipment and resources we use at our groups and focused on playgroup planning as a team.

Outside, we've added fences, gates and an outdoor playground, including a sandpit, seating and astroturf. The area is small, but the team are brainstorming ways that we can really make the most of the area by changing it up to keep things interesting.
