Central Kids Ōtorohanga Kindergarten would like to thank the Otorohanga Club Inc for their funding assistance towards the purchase and installation of a wash basin and tap in our outdoor kai area. We were finding that hand washing for our tamariki before kai was challenging, with them often sitting down at the kai table with dirty hands.
Hand washing practices were hindered by the fact that our only hand washing facilities were inside the kindergarten. It is a priority for us as teachers, to install strong hygiene practices and habits for our tamariki, with the Covid 19 pandemic really highlighting further this need.
The hand washing tap out in the outdoor kai area is now installed, and is highly valuable to our Kindergarten, teachers and tamariki.
A special mention also to the Trustpower Heartlands Community Fund who also assisted with this project and to our local plumbing firm Steenson Plumbing who installed the tap and have been so helpful
