It’s a month of celebration in many ways. First off, we celebrate a day of love and care for others through expression of giving.
And another special theme has surrounded our learning here at Dayspring. Our children come from many different ethnic groups, and they share their culture and foods through presentations and our very special International food festival!
And finally, we celebrate all of our cultures together at a potluck lunch, and we invite parents to join in on the fun! Let the International Food Festival begin!
Before having the potluck, our children enjoy watching and participating in a puppet show.
With a lot of energy and excitement built up from the puppet show, both children and parents experience different cultures and history through eating various types of food. We have families representing Canada, Ukraine, Norway, Russia, Poland, Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, India, China, Korea, Mongolia, and the Philippines.
And after presenting each food and country, the feast begins!
We hope our children are able to continue to embrace each other’s cultures and backgrounds by learning that every country brings a special element and meaning in this world. Through this, each child can be a vessel for peace and love for one another and the world.
“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.”
