Story books characters came alive yesterday as students of the Salvation Army Kindergarten in Martintar, Nadi, dressed up during the character parade.

The 42 kindergarten students paraded in different characters as part of the highlight of pre-school week.

“This week allows the students to feel the importance of early childhood as this is the foundation of their upbringing.” teacher Marica Vakatawa said

The kindergarten has a list of themes allocated for each day, starting on craft work on Monday.

Tuesday was awareness getting agencies such as Police, Land Transport Authority (LTA) and National Fire Authority to be part of the day’s programme.

The respective agencies were given time to share their roles in society and how students of their age group should relate to them.

“The police officers had a talk with the parents as well in terms of the support need towards their child’s safety,” Ms Vakatawa said.

“This is the only week that parents are invited to be with their children in the centre so that they can see and understand what the children do and learn.”

Pre-school week is part of enhancing quality early Childhood Education and care through sustainable approaches for a firm foundation for education in the 21st Century

Ms Vakatawa is expecting more students to enrol in next term.
