‘In a world where you can be anything; be kind’- Anonymous

With their increasing awareness and independence, pre-schoolers are ready to participate, if you show them how. We are firm believers that the best way to teach kindness to kids is to be a role model. They will learn by watching you be kind to friends, family and strangers. Children must have the insight to see how powerful their words are and how they can change someone’s life with just a simple act of kindness. Good Habits like these can help form character. Children have an inborn capacity for compassion and care. Temperament of course plays a role—some kids are naturally more tuned in to other people’s feelings and difficulties, while others are a bit oblivious. Either way, you have influence in fostering your child’s ability to empathize.

Save the next date – 

‘Grandparents Day’ – 19th September 2019.  10:30 am – 12:30 pm. This is exclusively for all grandparents to be with us and have an enjoyable time at ELC. We are letting you know early enough in case grandparents need to travel to be with us on the 19th of September, you could plan well in advance.
