At Central Kids Te Akoranga in Kawerau, children’s interests are supported through working in partnership with whānau.
Tiaki has a special interest in motorbikes. This was discovered through his play at kindergarten and through conversations with his whānau. Tiaki loves to look at motorbike magazines and pictures his whānau have shared with us of him on his dad’s motorcycle. He proudly shows all his friends and kaiako his pictures.
On Saturday, 2nd March 2019 the Nga Uri o Mataatua Ryderz Motorcycle Club attended the ‘Heart to Heart Children’s Day’ event in Kawerau and gave free rides to tamariki. Two whānau at our kindergarten are part of this motorcycle club including Tiaki’s. Tamariki at our kindergarten attended this event and were able to have a ride on a motorbike and meet up with their friends.
Thank you to Tiaki and Lavilla’s whānau for sharing their passion with the tamariki of Central Kids Te Akoranga.
Connecting links with the family and wider world are affirmed and extended – Te Whāriki, Early Childhood Curriculum.
