‌How you can be involved at the centre

Here are some ways you may wish to consider participating at the centre:

  • Contributing to your child’s learning journal through parent’s voice or by adding your own stories and photographs
  • Attending events at the centre e.g., parent evenings, the end-of-year concert or cultural celebrations
  • Donating items relevant to what the children are interested in e.g., plants and gardening equipment, books, arts & crafts materials and equipment
  • Organising an activity at your department if you work at the university which a group of children can visit, e.g., showcasing fossils or robots, conducting an experiment with the children, inviting children to special department events that may interest them
  • Reading stories, playing games or doing pules with a child or a small group of children when you drop your child off or pick him/her up
  • Participating in excursions as a parent-helper
  • Helping with or participating in fundraising activities
  • Taking our resident Pūkeko on your family outing or holiday and writing the adventure in Pūkeko’s journal
