Ceremony and tradition are so important in the affirming of relationships and acknowledgment of shared moments. Although our ‘graduates’ are very young, it is important to acknowledge the milestones they have achieved, and the precious time we have spent with them. We had a very special ceremony with the families, saying farewell to little ones moving on, a thank you to the wonderful staff who have cared for them, a special thanks to parents for support and involvement and an embracing of those moving on with us. As part of their end of year package the children receive an assessment report, so that we have an idea of their interests and milestones, and that parents are up to date with what we are seeing at the nursery. They also have a certificate, and a gift pack with their art work. The children really enjoyed and appreciated the moment of attention. They are all so dear, and we are so very privileged to be a part of this special time in their lives.
