Joining forces: Three Clendon early childhood education centres are protesting against the government's budget cuts. Preschools protest budget cuts By JESSIE COLQUHOUN Parents, teachers and chil- dren at three Clendon early childhood education centres want the government to know how the budget cuts are going to affect them. They gathered at Finlayson Park School to protest the $480 million cuts over the next four years. They were also protesting the government s decision to drop the 100 percent quali- fied teacher targets and asso- ciated funding. One of the centres protest- ing is Finlayson Park Early Childhood Centre. It has 92 percent qualified teachers and says it will lose more than $40,000 in funding. Kauri Kids and the Early Discovery Learning Centre both have 100 percent quali- fied centres and will miss out on the funding originally promised. The New Zealand Edu- cational Institute says the cuts will affect the quality of children s programmes. Early childhood education field officer Jane Marti says many parents might have to reduce their children s hours of attendance because of the inevitable fee increases. Many centres will have to look at shedding qualified teachers and employing unqualified staff, Ms Marti says. IN BRIEF Miners' memorial An Auckland memorial service for the miners killed in the Pike River disaster will be held tomorrow morning at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell. The interdenominational service is organised by the Auckland Council and is open to all members of the community. Mayor Len Brown says it's important for Aucklanders to be able to express ''sadness and empathy'' for those hurt by the tragedy. ''This service will be an important part of the healing process for those who have links to those who were lost, and an important way for our people to express solidarity with those on the West Coast.'' The Pike River memorial service is at 7am tomorrow, Holy Trinity Cathedral, 446 Parnell Rd. Special services Christmas can be a time of sadness for people who have lost loved ones so Manukau Memorial Gardens is giving them the chance to remember. It's holding its annual Christ- mas remembrance services on Sunday. The chapel at 357 Puhinui Rd, Papatoetoe, will be open to the public between 9.30am and 5pm. People are invited to bring along a candle to light during the service or write a special message on a memorial angel to hang on Christmas trees. This year gold coin donations will be collected for the teen cancer charity CanTeen. A special children's service is on at 11am and open services will be held at 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm.
