Go Kids!

Go Kids!

“The Littlies Lobby looks like a winner.” says Sue Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive of Parents Centre New Zealand.

“It’s just great to see a fun, positive initiative around children, especially at this time of year. Sometimes we can get so caught up in arrangements for Christmas that we almost forget about those who get the most out of it – our children.

The message that children are to be cherished, valued and given the best chance to flourish is one that everyone can subscribe to.”

“Parents Centre is proud to be part of the Littlies Lobby, and will push that message at every opportunity. Particularly the message that kids come first is core to Parents Centre. We ask everyone to focus on kids this summer – help parents make sure they are happy and safe and getting the most out of the festive season.”

Parent Centre congratulates both Plunket and the Commissioner for Children for all the work they have put in to establish the Littlies Lobby and looks forward to being part of this movement to give our kids the best childhood possible.
