Kia ora Whanāu,

Ko Jen Watts taku ingoa - Hi, my name is Jen Watts and I am the centre manager at The Rainbow Corner Early Learning Centre in Enderly Hamilton.

I am super excited to get to know you all and the akonga (learners). Early Childhood Education has been a passion of mine for many years and I love working in partnership with whanāu /parents to help tamariki (children) achieve their full potential, have fun and form long lasting relationships with friends and Kaiako.
Come have a korero with me and let me know how I can best support you and your child while here at the centre.

“Whangai ka tupu ka puawai”  -  That which is nurtured blossoms then grows.


Celebrating Maori Language Week.

This month all our centres celebrated the Maori Language Week. Sharing below some of the highlights. See our facebook page for lots more of these special stories. 

Beach Haven Centre

Some from Matariki and Maori Language week and arts and games.

Watch videos of our kids in action!

Our preschoolers performed haka and toddlers enjoyed poi dance on Maori waiata.
Whole week was about celebrating Maori language week... and our tamariki and kaiako nailed it!!!
Look at our beautiful children singing 🎤 our national anthem.
We are so proud that in Maori language week our tamariki are developing their knowledge and understanding about Maori culture and their values.
Tino pai tamariki!!!!!

Stretching Your Child's Brain Power

During the preschool period, one of the ways parents can support the development of their child's thinking is to point out the features of objects that a child might not spontaneously attend to. And although children ages three and four are usually quite capable of following a sequence of simple steps toward a goal, they can find it much harder to hold the bigger picture in mind and keep that end goal in sight.

Reminding them of what they are trying to achieve and refreshing their memory about rules or principles that govern the task can be really useful. Having said this, several researchers believe that between the ages of three and five, most children become able to start reflecting on their experience and are therefore ready to start developing key skills such as predicting, checking results, self-monitoring, and reality testing.


Pacifiers and Thumb-Sucking

Dads often think that a baby doesn't need a pacifier, but using a pacifier or sucking on her thumb or fingers isn't necessarily a bad habit for a baby. Many younger infants actually enjoy the security they get from this type of non-nutritive sucking, and it can be something that is healthy and normal and encouraged. It also can provide a calming or soothing effect for many infants.

The problem lies more with prolonged thumb-sucking or pacifier use. If a child continues to use a pacifier or suck her thumb past age three to five years, then it can affect her teeth and speech and language development.
