Grandparents are a family’s greatest treasure,
The founders of a loving legacy, the greatest storytellers,
The keepers of traditions that linger on in cherished memory.
Grandparents are the family’s strong foundation.
Their very special love sets them apart.
Through happiness and sorrow,
through their special love and caring,
Grandparents keep a family close at heart. (Author unknown)
Puss In Boots celebrates the role grandparents and older people play in our society by holding Grandparent’s Week from Monday 19th – 23rd October. We take pride in acknowledging both the things they have done, and the things they keep doing for their families and the broader community.
Grandparents, grand-friends, kin, and those who take on the role of a grandparent in their family or community are celebrated for their contributions during Grandparents Week. At Puss In Boots Morningside Child Care Centre we aim to foster intergenerational learning and offer all our children the benefit of experiencing interactions and communication with our older generation by holding an open week.
Grandparents enrich and strengthen families and communities. By passing on their heritage, experience and knowledge, they provide a cornerstone for younger generations to develop a sense of identity and belonging, and to build enduring relationships with their families and communities.
During Grandparents Week we hope that our Grandparents enjoy spending time with their grandchildren whether it be making some craft, reading stories, using playdough, building constructions, dressing up and role playing in the home corner, sipping on a pretend cup of tea or enjoying the outdoor playspace and participating in a delicious morning tea.
Grandparents Week is one of our favourite weeks of the year. The look of love and pride in the eyes of our visitors speaks volumes for the unique bond that exists between grandparents and their grandchildren. It’s a fun filled week for everyone to connect across the generations.
