Nursery’s family week raises cash for charity

Have your say

A WEEK-LONG event celebrated families at a nursery.

The children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Whiteley day nursery held a Family Week in support of Home-Start, the charity dedicated to supporting families with young children.

The Kiddi Caru Family Week was a celebration of all things family, including looking at families in different cultures and countries, family throughout the ages, famous real life and fictional families, and even animal families.

Throughout the week the children made family trees, using actual twigs and sticks from the nursery’s garden.

Granddads were invited to visit for a Gardening with Granddad afternoon and there was a family picnic tea.

There was also a Cooking with Grandma afternoon.

The nursery held a Family Fun Day extravaganza, complete with a bake sale, face painting, parent races, match the mum to the staff member competition, and family portrait painting.

All money raised on the day was donated to the Home Start charity.
