I have been working with child psychologists as we prepare to welcome children back to Cherry Grove at Alert Level 2 to make sure we are doing everything we can to ensure a smooth transition for tamariki. This has been an unprecedented time for our generation and it's important that we acknowledge changes have occurred to the way we live and it has affected us all in different ways.
Many parents are understandably worried about how their children will adapt to yet another change to life as they know it, but we want you all to know - Your Child Will Be Fine! Why? They have YOU - a caring parent(s) that has/have been a constant through all the transitions we have adapted to and embraced as a nation.
It has been a strange time but we have all done our part and as parents YOU have been amazing. The gift of time has been a surprising 'cherry on top' over this period, and we are so delighted to hear and see the incredible things you have all been doing in your bubbles. We can't wait to see you on Monday and begin a new normal with our community. Ka rawe Cherry Grover's, we are almost back!
