Festivals

Celebrating festivals in the kindergarten helps to connect the children with life, the seasons and the year as a whole. Children love the anticipation of the festivals; to help clean and prepare for each festival supporting their awe and wonder for life. Gently leading the children to an awakening of the changing seasons and the world around them. Each festival nurtures different qualities in the children, courage during Michaelmas, hope during advent leading up to Christmas, love and inner light at Christmas time.
