15 KAPI-MANA NEWS, JANUARY 10, 2012 FEATURE 4265473AA Loved d Learning safe Kindercare Learning Centres Innovation and new direction in early care and education In September 2011, Kindercare opened a beautiful new early childhood centre in Aotea, offering full and part time care and education to children from birth to 5 years old in a warm, relaxed and homely environment. While in our care, we want your child to have fun and feel cherished. Children learn through play so they need lots of opportunities for laughter and conversation, exploration and discovery and the freedom to be creative and messy! In the 40 years we've cared for children, we know that for them to be happy and settled, they need strong, close, loving relationships with the people that care for them. Our teachers focus on building connections and trust with each child in our care so they feel safe and know their needs will be met. Our centres are private, New Zealand owned and operated, offering a care and education program which runs from our Babies Room, through to the Transition to School Room. At each stage of development, our flexible program is planned around the strengths and interests of your child. Our Transition to School Program is designed to support a smooth transition from early childhood, into primary school. Our Letterland and Literacy Home-links Program are integral components of our Transition to School Program, as well as a focus on thedevelopment ofself- help and independence skills. Cherry.bytes, starting 2012, is our specialised information and communication technology program featuring a range of technologies enabling our 3½ - 5 year old children to experiment and explore infinite learning opportunities and develop valuable life skills. Our preschoolers love it! If it's care for your child while you're at work, or opportunities for your child to socialise, or an education program that lays the foundations for learning and transitioning to school -- trust Kindercare to meet your needs and those of your child. ® 41 Aotea Drive, Aotea, Porirua.

Call 111 for an ambulance, lay the person on their back, push on the chest hard and fast 30 times, at a rate of about twice a second. Keep your arms straight and push in the middle of the chest. Tilt the head back, pinch the nose and blow twice in the mouth, continue to alternate 30 pushes on the chest with two blows in the mouth until an ambulance arrives. St John says to remove the sting within seconds if possible, call 111 if the patient is known to have a life threatening allergy and assist them to take any prescribed medication. Apply an ice pack to the sting area for 10 to 20 minutes if pain is severe. For jellyfish stings, flush sting area with water and gently remove the tentacles if still present. Avoid excessive rub- bing of the tentacles. Put the sting area in hot water (as hot as the patient can stand without burning) for 20 minutes. A hot shower is ideal. If hot water is not available and there is signi- ficant pain, apply an ice pack. For bee and jellyfish stings, call 111 if the person has difficulty breathing, faints or develops a red rash all over their body, or swelling of the face or mouth. Heading off on the great Kiwi road trip? The Motor Trade Association recommends a pre- trip inspection for your motor, checking air conditioning, cooling system, drive belts, hoses and clamps, brakes, tyres, wiper blades, oil and water. An emergency kit should include jumper cables, jack and wheel- brace, torch, water for radiator and yourself (about two litres), blanket and towel, emergency reflectors. When driving long distances, take breaks every two hours or share the driving. If you feel tired, pull over and take a walk. Lastly, let's not forget about our animals. You might be excited about heading off on hol- iday but Rover and Fluffybum won't be delighted if you haven't organised someone to feed and take care of them. The SPCA gets hot under the collar about dogs suffering in hot cars over summer, with about a dozen dying this way last summer. The SPCA says even cars parked in the shade with windows slightly down can reach up to 49 degrees Celsius in 30 minutes. If people see a dog in distress, they should call the SPCA or 111. First aid is immersing the dog in cold water.
