New preschool is teacher-led Tree planting: Prime Minister John Key plants a liquid ambar with the Callander family at the learning centre. Photo: RANI TIMOTI Natural shaping: A circuit around a developing children's village area is one of the outdoor features of the new learning centre. By RANI TIMOTI The first teacher-led early childhood centre in the district sprawls over one hectare. The Coatesville Learning Centre was officially opened by Prime Minister John Key last Friday and caters for up to 50 preschoolers. It is run by Fiona and Chris Callander of Coatesville who have gained positive feedback from their community. Mr Key joked that he was pleased the property hadn t sold to a German investor, referring to accused internet pirate Kim Dotcom who owns a two-hectare Coatesville lifestyle block worth more than $4 million. Mr Key, who toured the cen- tre and planted a liquid ambar tree, says the government has a strong interest in early childhood centres. The most important thing is the quality of teachers who really determine the out- comes. Young ones are like sponges. He says there is alsoaanew high school in Hobsonville being built which gives more educational options for nor- west families. Fiona, who is a mother and qualified early childhood teacher, says they have a tran- sition programme for children who will go to neighbouring Coatesville School and they use the Jolly Phonics reading and writing programme. All the teachers are also familiar with Montessori, Reg- gio Emilia and the Steiner the- ory. Maths, music, art, tech- nology, socialisation and adventure play and movement are other areas and skills taught. The Callanders say the buil- der GJ Gardner finished ahead of schedule during the two-year process. Passers-by can t miss the planting by John Green of Greenscape Development. Landscaping includes Pacific-style fences and roof shades and a circuit around a developing children s village area. A mini-zoo of farm animals is planned along with a veg- etable garden and fruit trees. Show wants old tractors Rural machine: Jo Birch of Waimauku drives a 1963 Massey Ferguson 35 tractor. Do you have a classic or vintage tractor you could display at this year s Kumeu Show? Tractor enthusiasts and owners from the nor-west are welcome to join the 90th event on March 10 and 11. Peter Birch of Waimauku is co- ordinating the display. Any associated equip- ment like ploughs will also be appreciated. Mr Birch says owners don t need to spend the entire two days at the show because suitable arrangements will be made to ensure that their pride and joy is safe. Tractors do not need to be in showroom condition, a well used, original machine is of as much interest as a nice shiny one!
