Please tell my parents
Safe Start? is our programme for preventing sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI). There are about 50 SUDI deaths each year in New Zealand from 60000 live births. While this is down from 250 deaths per year in the 1980's, it is still the main cause of preventable deaths of babies in the first year of life. SUDI is rare for babies whose carers heed the safety advice and high for those who do not. The main findings of research can be summarised as three safety principles: face-up, face clear, smokefree. These safety principles work together to strengthen a child's safety as they sleep.

Toy Library
Play is important to all children and toys are a major element in helping to play and learn. A toy library welcomes children, their families and caregivers to come and to borrow well designed toys, games, puzzles and equipment, which are made available at minimal cost.
Toy Libraries operate along similar lines to public libraries. Members borrow toys for a fixed time period. Fees vary from library to library. Toy libraries cater mainly for pre-school children and generally have a limit on the number of toys that can be borrowed at each visit.
