March 2019 Recipients
Awakeri Playcentre received $2,992 to purchase new play equipment including animal finger puppets and Maori performing arts costumes.
The Playcentre is a parent co-op organisation that provides early childhood education for children aged 0-6. It believes that dramatic play helps children make sense of the world and engages their imagination and creativity.
The Playcentre actively promotes te reo Māori and Tikanga Māori, and these new resources will further its mission to increase awareness of Maori culture.
