At Bambini of Lilyfield we follow an innovative and holistic program. This semester there has been a focus on ‘The Arts’ curriculum; the educators provided the scaffold required to take it one step forward so that children can genuinely contribute to their community. We visited a local aged facility where the children took a special piece of art work for each elderly resident; we sang two beautiful songs with one of our educators strumming the guitar. The children’s contribution also included a morning tea for the residents which was cooked and prepared by them.
We visited our local art gallery and after which we were inspired to hold an art auction the net proceeds of which are being donated to two charities – both for children. The auction raffle is with the support of local businesses who have contributed for the prize and the auction will be opened by one of our local Balmain MP.
