The children and staff at BestStart Whangaparāoa celebrated their first Christmas at their new centre at Coast earlier this month.
On December 1st, everyone came into the centre to find Christmas had taken over! There was tinsel everywhere, special Christmas artwork by the tamariki, decorations and lights.
Throughout the month, BestStart whānau have enjoyed a special Christmas-related event or activity each day, including a countdown of how many sleeps left until Santa arrives! Teachers and children also visited Santa at the mall and library.
To finish off the festivities, the centre hosted a wonderful Christmas party. All the teachers, tamariki and their whānau were invited to spend a lovely evening celebrating the year at their brand-new BestStart centre. Santa came for a visit, the tamariki put on a Christmas concert and everyone enjoyed fun games and picnic food.
BestStart Whangaparāoa is dedicated to working in close partnership with parents and whānau. Because of this, the centre holds regular events where everyone is invited to come along and get to know other children, parents and teachers.
Merry Christmas everyone from BestStart Whangaparāoa!
