Mōrena Cherry Grove
It's certainly an interesting time that we are currently facing as a nation and it was lovely to hear from parents this morning how nice it was coming into Cherry Grove where everything is going on as normal! Every day is a new learning adventure for our tamariki so we are continuing with our usual protocols but have just added some further administration behind the scenes to ensure we can stay 'normal'.
Can I just take a moment to thank all our families and staff who were traveling last week for self-isolating - I am extremely grateful to you all for thinking about the health and safety of our Cherry Grove community. We have five families affected by Covid-19 thus far and ask that if you do have contact with people who have traveled in the last 14 days to contact me as soon as possible.
It's a very Autumnal day out there so gumboots and extra layers will be in full use today. Our new teacher for Buds, Melissa, has started with us and is enjoying getting to know our tamariki. We are so pleased to have her with us, she has so much experience with toddlers and is passionate about this age group. Lauren Bird is also doing some relieving for us in the Blossom/Cherry room. Lauren is in her second year of ECE training and is loving being part of Cherry Grove so much, she has asked to join us as her home Centre! We have happily said yes as her references were amazing and look forward to having Lauren join us.
Kudeep is cooking up a Winter warmer today, the tamariki are having spaghetti crunchies and sausages! Something completely different for our tamariki and our Chef to cook - thanks Nicole for thinking of a fun menu this week.
No Coach Tom today as he is sick, so we have set up lots of biking activities to keep those that are choosing to be outside warm! There are plenty of indoor activities on the go including a hair dressing salon in Busy Bee's this morning - thanks Willa and Sheree for the services you are providing to everyone today!
Have a lovely St Patrick's Day Cherry Grover's - may the luck of the Irish be with you!
