We are delighted to be adding three new Otara Early Learning Centres to our Pūoru Pīrere Programme.

This week we’ve enjoyed meeting the new tamariki at St Johns Evangelist Pre-School, East Tamaki Child Care Center and Poetiare O Rongomai. We’ll also be spending some time with the children at Kinz East Tamaki this term.  These centres join the existing programme delivered at Akoteu Tenga’i Musita (Mustard Seeds), Barnardos KidStart Childcare, Mayfield Kindergarten, Bairds Kindergarten and Kenese Aoga Niue.

Our tutors will be going into the centres each week to deliver an exciting and fun music session. These special little people are learning about language, concentration, and self-expression. They are also getting to know all about the instruments of an orchestra, the sounds they make, and how to read music notation.

We can’t wait until they are part of the main Sistema programme in a few years!
