Kia ora koutou.

There is a huge amount of information and misinformation swirling around regarding the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. For many, the situation can feel overwhelming and with that in mind, we wanted to create a space dedicated to our kindergarten whānau and to helping you all during this time.

Together, Kindergartens Aotearoa have created KindySafe – a space for you, your children and your friends and families to access over the coming weeks and months. On our whānau resources page, you will everything from strategies and ideas for supporting your tamariki at home, through to recipes, experiments and other learning resources. We have also created a space that talks about COVID-19 here in New Zealand, including providing links to official Government sites to provide accurate information at this time. 

Over the coming days, we’ll be adding information, resources, tools and ideas for supporting your tamariki at home. Please feel free to share these with your friends and family.

As we join many organisations across New Zealand and the world in responding to this unprecedented situation, we want to remind you all of the importance of looking after yourselves and those around you. Together, we can get through this challenging time.

With love,
Kindergartens Aotearoa
