Nana Helen has been visiting us regularly to share her love of crochet with our learning community. Helen is a local Paeroa resident who has lived in this community for many years and her dream was to become a Kindergarten Teacher. Unfortunately, Helen was told she was too young by the Training College and went on to pursue other career choices.
Now we are very fortunate to have Helen here at Central Kids Paeroa Kindergarten sharing her knowledge with us. The children sit on the couch and enjoy special moments of togetherness whilst engaged in their creative mahi and new learning. Just recently Helen and tamariki completed their first of many projects, a beautiful hand knitted blanket for the pepi. Ka mau te wehi!
