54 selwyn district residents' guide 2017 Ashbrook Ashbrook SELWYN’S COMING OF AGE A lack of facilities for the elderly in Selwyn is currently being addressed. While Darfield has had Westmar Senior Care Centre and a hospital, there has been a void elsewhere. Options for downsizing through to full rest home care are now emerging in Lincoln and Rolleston. Developed by Generation Homes, the boutique yet affordable Devon Green in Rolleston’s Devon Park, offers a sense of community in an attractive, open environment. Young through to those older can purchase a quality architecturally designed townhouse or duplex unit, with half of the forty five planned homes already sold. “The majority of our complete house and land packages are under the $460,000 mark,” advises Evan Beker, Director of Generation Homes South. While not just for the elderly, Horncastle’s Ashbrook in Faringdon offers smaller low maintenance two to four bedroom units and townhouses (90-150 square metres). Their aesthetically pleasing designs maximise space, flow and light.

selwyn district residents' guide 2017 55 k le re y t r EARLY CHILDHOOD & AFTER SCHOOL CARE Selwyn has a large number of early childhood facilities that include kindergartens, play centres and preschools along with home based childcare options. Parents are also supported with before and after school programmes. The basis of the programmes followed in early childhood centres varies from a Te Whãriki New Zealand early childhood approach to Montessori, or Reggio Emilia with all having an emphasis on family and community. Te Whãriki promotes learning partnerships between teachers, parents and families where all aspects of the child’s world is taken into account. The aim of a Montessori programme is to build strong children who cope with diversity and interact well with others and their environment, showing respect and taking responsibility. With the Reggio Emilia philosophy support, respect and an enriching environment are all the focus, with children exploring their own interests through art, drama, crafts and play to become independent learners.
