Last Saturday was a special day for the children of Mickey Mouse Daycare when they were promoted to the next grade at their year-end concert and graduation ceremony held at the Schornville Community Hall.
The goal of Mickey Mouse is to take a child’s hand, open their minds and touch their hearts. They accommodate toddlers from ages 1½ to five years.
“We have 18 kids who are graduating today and who are already accepted to start grade R at schools, such as Kingsridge, Central, St Thomas Private, St Christopher’s Private and Dale College Junior, in 2019,” Mickey Mouse principal Creshenda Ambaram said prior the event.
“I would like to extend a word of my gratitude to the parents who generously supported the institution in so many ways and for their interests in the development of their children.”
Ambaram also touched on their social responsibility programmes which include reaching out to the needy and charity organisations.
“We have made donations of clothing and funds for nappies to the King William’s Town Child and Youth Care Centre and handed blankets and food to the poor in the vicinity as well as Christmas gifts to those in need,” said Ambaram.
Parents commended Mickey Mouse for the wonderful job it had done in developing their children and encouraged the staff to keep up the good work.
“As a parent I am happy because I have seen a big improvement in my child. She has learnt a lot and I think the principal must consider upgrading to grade R because she has got the potential to do that,” one of the parents said.
