Kangaroo Kids International Preschool, India’s No. 1 Premium International Preschool Brand, announced its annual event, the Grandparents Tea Party, which was held this Grandparents Day on 10th September, 2023. This year’s theme, “World Theatre Festival,” was showcased across all the centres of Kangaroo Kids. Through this celebration, Kangaroo Kids aimed to reinforce the significance of grandparents in a child’s upbringing and inculcate cultural values among them.
The Grandparents Tea Party consisted of thoughtfully designed age-appropriate activities, tailored for the unique needs of both the 1-2-year-old and 3-4-year-old age groups to foster engagement and celebrate the day with shared experiences. Children writing to invite their grandparents to the celebration was one of the major highlights of the event, strengthening the bond between the two generations. By organising such events, Kangaroo Kids stands committed to instilling family values in a child’s life from a young age.
Today’s rapid evolution of society has significantly influenced the structure and dynamics of nuclear families. Kangaroo Kids acknowledges this shifting societal and family dynamic and constantly works towards strengthening and nurturing the dynamic intergenerational bonds. Through the Grandparents Tea Party, the preschool highlighted the fact that grandparents serve as important role models for children, imparting essential life skills and values that shape a child’s character and promote their overall development.
Commenting on the announcement of this event, KVS Seshasai, CEO, Pre-K Division, Lighthouse Learning, said, “It was heart-warming to see grandparents travel from near and far to share these cherished moments and form lasting memories with their grandchildren. This event served as a testament to the enduring love, wisdom, and cultural heritage passed down from one generation to the next. At Kangaroo Kids, we have always worked hard to ensure that we equip our children with all the essential future skills and inculcate cultural values among them through our consistent efforts.”
The tea parties enable grandparents to connect and interact with children’s facilitators and friends, allowing them to be more involved in their grandchildren’s lives. Through many such initiatives, programs, and unique curriculum, Kangaroo Kids aims to transform the early childhood education landscape.
