How we started
The EFKS Porirua Church (EPC) back in 1994 mandated to start a Home Care Service to support the working families of PEC with children. A safe homely place where the children are looked after with care and love while their parents are away working.
The Mafutaga a Tina volunteered to administer, and parents were encouraged to utilise the opportunity. Several mothers volunteered their time, energies and money driven only by genuine desires to help families and their children.
Funded through congregational donations it ballooned overnight into a viable successful Church offering.
For three years it remained a Home Care Service run on a temporary basis from one corner of the church hall. Invariably growing demand dictated the need for suitable permanent arrangement.
Thus began concerted planning, workshops, development and eventually the birth of the fully fledged registered Early Child Education organisation known today as AAPE.
