Update 28 April 2020

Tēnā koutou katoa

After 34 days of lockdown, it is encouraging to now be moving to Level 3. If you haven’t as yet, please do check out the website for guidelines on what you should be doing during this next level. Even though we are not allowed to open under Level 3,  there is a range of checks and preparations that can be carried out now.  I would like to stress again though that no children are able to  enter Playcentre for any reason during Level 3.

This morning the management team met with the Regional Managers and we had a long discussion on next steps.  One of the points raised was concerning communication now that we have moved out of Level 4.  Over the past five weeks, I have been keen to keep everyone in the Playcentre whānau informed as much as possible about the ongoing situation, especially the information and details coming out of the Ministry of Education.  With the latest move, I have been thinking that rather that daily communications, I will reduce updates to possibly two to three times a week.   

As well as ensuring that our Centres are right up-to-date with how to proceed under Level 3, we are already looking ahead to Level 2 and will be seeking clarification on what this will mean for Playcentres.

Ka kite anō au i a koutou.
