Bringing International Practices to the UK

 

One of our apprentices Klaudia, has really made her mark within the nursery she works in as an apprentice. Originating from Poland, Klaudia joined the apprenticeship programme eager to forge a career within the Child Care Sector with aspirations to become a teacher in the future.

After just 7 months into her apprenticeship, Klaudia brought the idea of having a ‘Children’s Day’ party in the nursery manager.

Children’s Day is a recognised day in many countries around the world, to honour children globally. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the well-being of children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954. Klaudia had experience of this, with it being an annual celebration within Poland.

With the management team thinking it was great idea, they let Klaudia go about organising the party which subsequently happened on the 30th May 2014. On the 29th May after all the children had gone home, Klaudia with some colleagues decorated the nursery with world flags pinned up all around each of the rooms with bubble blowers and flags decorating each table.

The day started with a bang, with Klaudia organising games and music with the afternoon bringing yet more fun in the form of more pin the tail on the donkey, musical chairs, pass the parcel, musical statues all topped off with ice cream and jelly.

At the end of the day, each child got a little present, with a goodie bag of crayons, colouring books and balloons.

This was a great success, with children and parents personally going to Klaudia to tell her how they enjoyed the party.
