We have recently celebrated the children’s success at First Friends and Abacus by having our annual graduation.
This is a popular event amongst our parents, staff and children. It gives everyone the opportunity to come together and celebrate the children’s achievements and to say goodbye to friends.
There have been many articles in the press, naming graduation parties for under-5s as “over the top” and an “American trend”. But as you can see from our photos, as long as the children have fun and enjoy their day of celebrations, its not a problem with us.
Many of the children who graduated from our Salisbury setting have been with us since they were babies. They, along with the children at Abacus have developed into wonderful independent individuals. We feel it’s important to celebrate children’s success and for them to feel motivated and ready to start the next chapter in their lives.
We would love to hear your views.
