As part of a long-term partnership, the children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Plympton 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 inviting members of families to come in to make family masks and kites to fly together, baking cookies to sell at the fun day and planning to plant hanging baskets and harden troughs ready to dress the garden, the nursery is also holding a fantastic Fun Day on Saturday 13th June.
Children and parents will be invited to enjoy lots of fete style games including a bouncy castle, face painting, tombola, raffle, pin the tail on the Roo, name the Roo and guess the weight of the cake. The nursery’s cook will be putting on a buffet style lunch and there will be small donations to participate in the activities to help raise money for Home-Start.
Furthermore weather permitting the nursery is going to have a 'Let’s get active’ week in the garden with lots of fun races and obstacle courses.
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.
Tracey Callan, 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.”
