All in the family


Queenstown mum Meaz Nathan, her kids Atawhai Watson, 3 (right), Meronea Watson, 2 (front), and friend Taylah Cooney, 2 (left), don’t need an excuse to celebrate International Families Day tomorrow – they’re reminded every day.

Youngsters and parents belonging to Queenstown Playcentre are “like one big family”, secretary Peta Carey says.
Families Day – based on a resolution from the United Nations General Assembly to promote the importance of families – is a good reminder for the success of parent-led early childhood education, she says.
