Upper Hutt Leader : August 17th 2011
8 UPPER HUTT LEADER, AUGUST 17, 2011 NEWS BUSY BEEZ CHILDCARE CENTRE COMPANY PROFILE COMPANY PROFILE COMPANY PROFILE Busy Beez Childcare Centre is located at 626 Fergusson Dr and open from 7.30am-5.30pm. For more information contact the friendly staff on 527 0605. Busy Beez Childcare Centre cares for Hutt Valley children and helps to prepare them for an exciting future. The centre looks after children aged 0-5 years old and has seven full-time teachers. Christine Williams, centre manager, says the majority of their teachers are fully-qualified in early childhood education. "We run to the New Zealand curriculum Te Whariki, so the children are exposed to literacy, maths, and science as well being included in the community and learning social skills." During this term, the children have visited the Wellington Airport Rescue Centre and the Trentham Fire Station. They have also met with Upper Hutt police. The centre keeps everyone busy and entertained with a variety of interesting activities including weekly Kapa Haka, Chinese language sessions and dance lessons at Variety Dance in Silverstream. Mrs Williams says teachers create term reports for each child and show parents how they can further encourage their learning. "Our philosophy is that we believe it is important that children, parents/ guardians, caregivers, whanau, teachers and the community are treated respectfully within our centre, working together and communicating with openness and honesty." "We believe in order for the children attending our centre to develop as confident learners they need to be exposed to a nurturing, trusting environment as well as be challenged and have fun." The centre is divided into two areas for children aged 0-2 years and 2-5 years. This means both age groups can have fun and learn in a safe environment that is catered to their exact needs. Mrs Williams says they have a sand-pit, a selection of climbing equipment, bikes, computers and an art room outside. "This helps the children with various skills including muscle development, motor skills, personal expression, turn-taking and more." Busy Beez Childcare Centre runs a special parents evening every term, where parents can meet together and be informed about their child's progress. Their art-work is also collected in a special profile book for parents to keep. Each teacher works individually with your child and takes a keen interest in their development, Mrs Williams says "I think we are passionate about early childhood education. We want the parents to know that while they are here they receive quality treatment. ` `Some families put all of their children from oldest to youngest through our centre." Fees are $220 a week for under three year olds and $215 a week for over three year olds. They also offer WINZ subsidies and 20 hours free through the government's early childhood education plan. 3941279AA 3728265AH Gethings Completely Upper Hutt, Completely the Hutt Valley, Full Main Dealer Facilities Main Street, Upper Hutt PH: 528 4624 ASX Sport 4WD $42,990.00 or ASX Sport 2WD $39,890.00* 2.0 MIVEC Petrol - 7.9 Litres per l00Kms 1.8 MIVEC Diesel- 5.9 Litres per l00Kms Features of this All New ASX Cruise control, Immobiliser Alarm, 7 Air Bags, Active Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, Traction Control, Level Loading Area, USB Port, One-touch Start, Keyless Operating System, Rain Sensor, Auto Lighting Control, Hands free Bluetooth, Reverse Warning System.

Ashly Eric Miller, 38, appeared in the Upper Hutt Dis- trict Court on multiple charges relating to the bust. These include unlawfully possessing a firearm, cultivation of cannabis, supplying stimulants and possession of methamphetamine for supply. About 150 officers were involved in the year-long Oper- ation Hunter, which focused on the Wairarapa. Police uncovered a large hydroponic cannabis operation, which resulted in 25 properties being raided and 25 arrests being made. Detective Inspector Darrin Thomson said the mission had significantly disrupted the criminal fraternity and drug supply chain . As part of Operation Hunter, we have also recovered $100,000 worth of cash, as well as recovering six vehicles valued at around $150,000. Miller was remanded on bail until September 12. An unlikely story An unemployed man charged with excess breath alcohol appeared in court on his 19th birthday. Blair Kerr admitted the August 3 charge in court. He was found parked on State High- way 1 with a reading of 731 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath. Defence counsel Mike Sceats said he admitted to police he had been drinking earlier in the day. He had been driving along through Peka Peka. He decided that he might be over the limit, he pulled over and asked a friend to pick him up. Judge Chris Tuohy said Kerr s explanation sounded unlikely. I am a bit suspicious. It s a very very strange place to sit, park your car, and keep drinking RTDs. Mr Sceats said Kerr lost his job at Pak n Save as a result of the stress of the court proceedings. Kerr was sentenced to 60 hours community work, disqualified for six months and his car was confiscated. Charges admitted A 19-year-old woman was found at a gang member s house with used and unused needles, the court was told recently. Natasha West admitted possession of cannabis, failure to answer bail and pos- session of drug para- phernalia. Duty lawyer Mike Sceats said police searched a property and found West with two patched gang members. She was later found to be in possession of needles. She made an admission to being a recreational morphine user, Mr Sceats said. Her partner is well-known to the police and he s a well- known intravenous user as well. Judge Chris Tuohy said he wanted to help West, rather than punish her, and he did not believe someone could be a recreational morphine user without develop- ing a problem. West was remanded on bail until October 12 for an alcohol and drug assessment.
