Here at BestStart Paraparaumu we feel it is important for our tamariki to learn about the history of our area to help them gain a sense of belonging, not only to our centre but their own community and to gain an understanding of others culture and heritage.  We have begun an exciting adventure of visiting the heritage sights of Kapiti. 

Our first excursion was to Te Atiawa heritage site which we are so lucky is right across the road from our amazing centre.  On our visit we explored the nature along the way. Once we arrived we read out the information available around the site to the tamariki and then as you will hear the tamariki retold this in their own words. 

Unfortunately we saw a pile of old cans and rubbish and this lead onto a koreo around being a tidy kiwi and sustainability. The tamariki have now decided they would like to revisit the heritage site and clean it up. BestStart Paraparaumu are going to become to kaitiaki of these sites.
