Celebrating festivals at our Educare is a way to build a sense of community amongst the children, staff, and the parents. It brings awareness to the rhythmic cycles such as the change in seasons. This term we celebrated the Winter Festival. All of the children and staff created lanterns for a lantern walk.
The light shining within the lantern symbolises the light that lives within each one of us. May this inner light shine bright and guide and protect us on our journey.
While walking the lantern walk, the children sing a song:
I walk with my little lantern
my lantern, myself and I
Of yonder bright little stars shine
Down here we are stars to the sky.
the moon shines, the cat meous, hey hey hey
La bimmel, La Bammel, La boom
