Overwhelming response to new kindy

SHARE

Oamaru’s newest kindergarten opened its doors for the first time on August 5, and the response to the new facility has been overwhelming.

With 25 families enrolled on the first day, by August 7, they were full and now they have a waiting list.

Glen Warren Kindergarten is currently facilitating 41 families, some with more than one child attending Early Childhood Education, but on alternate days.

Oamaru Kindergarten Association general manager Julie Craig said some families had moved from other kindergartens in town, because Glen Warren was more central, with others enrolled having had no Early Childhood Education at all.

“So we’re here to support them with that transition into school,” Mrs Craig said.

Four teachers and a teacher aide/cook have been hired. They are; Sarah Gordon, Ella Harbrow, Glenda Rusbatch, Rose Wylie and Dawn Birse.

An official opening will take place in about a month, with a few “little things” to finish off before then.
