Grandparents Day


Group B celebrated this special day by inviting grandparents or special friends to come to Willmore so the children can share what they do each day with them. The children bounded in full of uncontained enthusiasm just busting to share everything with their visitors. We began by singing some of our favourite songs including an Elvis song which one grandparent said to me, “ I felt like I was 16 again and didn’t want the music to end.”

A highlight was the funky monkey which involves forming a conga line. We invited the visitors to join in and they all did. The expressions on the faces of all participants is something we will treasure for many years to come.

Grandparents are such important people in young children’s lives and are able to share their own stories of times with their own children. It was wonderful to hear some of these stories as it is what makes us a community.
