Child Stimulation Month ends with parade
Friday, April 4th, 2014
On Friday March 28th, Child Stimulation Month came to a close with a parade through the streets of San Pedro Town. The preschoolers, accompanied by teachers and parents/guardians, were dressed in brightly colored school tee’s waving balloons as they made their way singing and dancing from Central Park north to the roundabout along Pescador Drive and back. Schools present included Ambergris Caye Preschool, ABC Preschool, Holy Cross Preschool, Little Angels, Brighter Tomorrow Preschool and San Pedro Preschool.
While this was the final event for the children it certainly was not the only one, as the month of March was filled with numerous activities. Week one promoted the theme “Promoting Preschool Learning,” wherein children attended a church service, partook in an opening parade, and saw several activities such as Gardening Day, Hug Day, and Sports Day.
Under the theme “Family and Culture” the second week of events included a trip to Lady Bug Garden Shop, storytelling day, a cultural day and family movie day. The third week of the month revolved around “Health and Safety” and on Monday March 17th, preschoolers learned about the different traffic signs, even creating their own during arts and crafts. They also enjoyed a trip to a local dental clinic, learning about personal hygiene, and the importance of eating healthy foods. Monday March 24th was the start of the final week which focused on “Civic Pride”. Preschoolers took part in the Festival of Arts, met local artisans and enjoyed nature walks. The busy month was wrapped up with the lively parade on Friday .
The San Pedro Sun applauds all the preschools for doing a great job of instilling the fundamentals in our island children!
