PONGAROA EARLY YEARS FUNDRAISER
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page and for your ongoing support of the important fundraising we have to do.
Our pre-school relies so much on fundraising. We've not had much success in recent years, thanks to Covid and now being cut off by the flooding.
Here's a little bit of info about us, and what the funds you help us raise will go towards:
Pongaroa early years is a rural preschool nestled in the heart of farming country in Pongaroa. It is the only early childhood centre within an hour’s drive, ensuring rural tamariki can have access to an early childhood education.
PEY is completely fees free, as well as community owned. It is run by a board of volunteer members who work extremely hard to raise funds so we can hire early childhood teachers and keep this amazing community asset open. Without the constant efforts of our members and community, fundraising and looking for grants we wouldn’t be able to have a preschool at all.
The main aim of PEY is the quality education for tamariki before they start school. The first five years of a child's life is when a lot of their brain connections and development is made. Along with social skills needed to enter school life. Our centre can help this happen.
We will continue to be a fees free centre to ensure that every single child, zero to five can have an early education in a safe and nurturing environment. All with a rural farm life flare.

PS - A quick bit about the products:
Bath soaks are not just for granny! The NZ men’s rugby team players use the SO:Active blend to help with muscle recovery after matches. This is a great one to support the sporty people in your life.
“I regularly order the 'So Active' bath salts for my 14-year-old who doesn't like to do warm-down stretches after football training/games. Instead he has a good soak in the bath with these salts, and they work brilliantly to help relax his muscles. I occasionally use them too when I'm feeling sore & stiff and love them - they are our go-to product for sore muscles!”
If you don’t have a bath but would still like to show your suport, why not try a Magnesium Oil spray? Choose from unscented or lavender, which is great for relaxing into sleep. Both oils are a great way to boost your magnesium levels. Simply spray onto your skin and rub it in. Great for easing your muscles after a workout or training session.
"This is how you’re going to get some sleep at night. Buy the magnesium spray with lavender. Spray it on the soles of your feet. Done. I’m getting the best sleep in years because of this exact thing."
