17 KAPI-MANA NEWS, JANUARY 17, 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 of self- 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.

Photo: MIKE HEYDON Murder mystery: Who killed Skippy the wallaby? Armed with 600 bottles of rescue remedy, a team of rescuers travelled to the stricken city, returning to rehome three dogs, 27 cats, 17 roosters and six turtles in Wellington and Kapiti. Over on the west coast a perplexing case of how a wallaby came to be in Pukerua Bay had officials stumped in late 2010. Skippy, as the wallaby was known by some residents, was found dead in the bay. The wallaby was buried in the garden of a Wairaka Rd resident before Greater Wellington Regional Council biosecurity officer Gary Sue dug Skippy up for further identification, describing him as pretty smelly, but definitely a wallaby''. Skippy was identified as a dama wallaby, which, according to the Department of Conser- vation were first introduced to New Zealand in the 1870s on Kawau Island and spread to Roto- rua and central Bay of Plenty. They have also been spotted in the Waikato region. But it was the discovery of another animal that caused real concern for conservationists: a stoat on Kapiti Island. Since the first stoat sighting in November 2010, three stoats have been caught on the island, which had been officially predator free since 1998. DOC, with the help of mustelid detec- tion dogs, continue to hunt for any remaining.
