As part of a long-term partnership, the children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Milton Keynes Walnut Tree day nursery is running a Family Week in support of Home-Start – the charity dedicated to supporting families with young children.
The Kiddi Caru Family Week will take place w/c 8th June 2015 and will be a celebration of all things family for example looking at families in different cultures and countries, family throughout the ages, famous real life and fictional families and even animal families.
As well as enjoying a dress down day the children will be bringing in family photos and discussing all about different family situations. Mums, dads, grandmas, granddads, aunts and uncles will also be invited to come in and enjoy a Stay and Play session at the nursery.
The children are all looking forward to a family dress up day where they dress up as either a family member or as the job that they do which will be followed by a family tea party.
The Family Week will end on a high with a Fun Day on Saturday 13th June where there will be face-painting, guess how many sweets in the jar, a cake stand, tombola and raffle.
Visitors will also be able to tuck into refreshments in the form of hot dogs, cakes, crisps and soft drinks.
Home-Start is a national family support charity that helps parents to build better lives for their children. Volunteers provide support and friendship to more than 32,000 families every year.
Home-Start wants to see a society in which every parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
Since the launch of the partnership last year Kiddi Caru has already raised almost £2000 on behalf of the charity.
Louise Higgins, Senior Nursery Manager, said: “The idea of inclusion is very important to us at Kiddi Caru and we are looking forward to holding our Family Week as it is aimed at focusing on families and especially highlighting the fact that all families are different.
“The Family Week will culminate in a Fun Day which will not only help us raise funds for an extremely worthy cause, but also reinforces Home-Start and Kiddi Caru’s belief that every child is totally unique and in need of nurturing.”
