Mother’s Day!

April showers bring May flowers! Days are getting warmer, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and summer is just around the corner. It’s the perfect time to get more active with your littles ones outdoors, enjoy quality time with family and most importantly celebrate Mother’s Day!

On Mother’s Day, we take the time to thank and appreciate our Mothers and Motherly figures for all that they do! To honour all of our Kids & Company Mothers, Grandmothers and Motherly figures, we will be hosting our annual Mother’s Day Tea Parties this week at all of our centres (speak to your Director for more details). We invite all of our Kids & Company parents to join us and celebrate this special day with the kiddies! There will be fun activities and crafts for the little ones and we will be serving some delicious and nutritious Kidco Kitchen snacks for everyone to enjoy. This event is also a great opportunity for you to meet and interact with other parents and students at your centre. We hope to see all of our Kids & Co families at our Mother’s Day celebrations this week!

Mother’s Day is a perfect time to start forming fond traditions - why not start creating fun, interactive and memory-making cooking traditions with your own family? Bring your Mom, Grandmother and kiddies together to cook and make a yummy, delicious meal as a wonderful Mother’s Day tradition.
