Whatever the season, The Champion Centre is always buzzing with activity: play; movement; singing and the achievement of new milestones. While it’s been very warm and cosy at the Centre during these Winter weeks, we can’t wait for Spring when we will be able get outside, into our beautiful playground!
One of the fundamental principles underpinning our work at The Champion Centre is the partnership between parents and staff. Staff bring their skills and expertise together with parents’ understandings of their children, and the goals they have for them. It’s this partnership which creates the highly individualised programmes for each child. We are privileged to see this partnership in action every day, and the commitment demonstrated by staff and parents to their tamariki.
Equally important are the relationships made between families. In this edition of Connect we are grateful to Emma, Jonty’s Mum, for sharing her family's journey. She touches on how helpful it is to connect with other Mums. We’re also keen to share with you a new initiative, born from one Mum's drive to support others.
And finally, we’re proud to share with you the launch of a new book on Prematurity. This is a joint initiative by The Champion Centre and The Champion Foundation Trust.
