Educare Washington, DC, recently celebrated the importance of families and a key milestone for some children—the transition to kindergarten.
At Family Engagement Day on June 25, children and families enjoyed a day of fun, with face painting, a bounce house, hula hooping and other games.
Educare believes that parents are their child's first and most important teacher, and school staff partner with parents to help them become champions for their children's education. Family Engagement Day is an opportunity to thank parents for their hard work during the school year.
The Moving Up Ceremony on June 26 marked both the end of the school year and new beginnings for our 29 Educare students who will be transitioning to kindergarten in the fall.
At the event, children sang songs for their families and received diplomas. Jamal Berry, associate director of the school, read the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling to inspire the families on their journey to kindergarten.
