Community ties with Julia Wallace Retirement Village

Milson Kindergarten

10/Oct/2017

Building community relationships has been a focus for Milson Kindergarten this year. Visiting Julia Wallace Retirement Village in the lollipop van during term 3 has been the start of this journey.

Julie Wallace is conveniently located not far from us and is a safe and welcoming place for our children to connect with the older generation.

The children have been able to quickly find ways to feel comfortable and connect with all the new people in this community through singing waiata, acting out stories.  The atmosphere has been one of enjoyment from both children and adults and there has been a genuine interest to get to know one another

Planning for a Teddy Bear’s picnic is now underway with both the kindergarten children and the residents at Julia Wallace looking forward to another fun event together.
