Tuputupu Time!

Pupuke Early Learning Centre has loved the Koko Programme, so much so that the teachers and children refer to it as  Tuputupu Time! 

What do the teachers have to say about the programme?

“It has been great fun, very enjoyable.”
“I like having some guidance and ideas for physical activities.”
“It is great having help with the planning and knowing that so many skills and all parts of the body are being included.”
