It has been quite an exciting December here at Westmount! The children have a lot of Christmas spirit, and we’ve seen the creation of many beautiful drawings, ornaments, and homemade gifts for friends and family. One of the children thought it would be a great idea to do something for the other children in the program, so she made an announcement that we would be doing Secret Santa!
All of the children’s names were written down and put into a can, they each picked a name out of the jar starting from youngest to oldest and it was announced that everyone could participate and exchange cards. The children got to work creating beautiful cards celebrating one another, one child drew a picture of her and the other child and wrote, “I love when we play together”. It was wonderful to see the children take the initiative to show their appreciation for one another!
Happy holidays, and we will see everyone in the new year!
