In Børnehuset Lillekilde, we have annual traditions that make Lillekilde to what we are. Our traditions and activities maintain for us a continuing high standard and continuity in successful actions and fellowship. Many activities are created annually together with our wonderful parents.
Every year – usually in March – we hold a vernissage in which children in Lillekilde have all the things they have made, painted, shaped etc. exhibited. Parents, grandparents, siblings etc. come and take a look and take the children’s art home. Our vernissage is very often focused on recycling, where we empty the hobby store, scavenger – find gold in garbage and collect things from nature.
Every year on the 1st of April, children and parents can stop by Maos kitchen for an ice-cream to celebrate Lillekildes birthday. Lillekildes alumni and their parents are also welcome to stop by.
Annually we have a graduation for the oldest children, who have to start in school. We have a cheerful and funny ceremony where each child receives a personal book with pictures since the nursery days and a Lillekilde-cap as evidence that he/she is now ready to start in school.
Sun, summer and party. The summer party in Lillekilde is a lovely day with lots of food and activities. Here the cream puff machine comes out where the clown shoots with cream puffs. You can try to score a goal, catch fish in the fishpond or throw water balloons. We have face painting and a braiding booth – and sometimes tombola or clown magic from outside.
Lucia Parade & Christmas Party
At Christmas we make Christmas decorations and bake Christmas cookies for the neighbors and when we have our annual Christmas Party in Lillekilde, Santa Claus always remember to pass by. Otherwise we just call him as loud as we can. We have Christmas atmosphere in the groups and the children perform in the tumble room. Bogfinken children learn Christmas carols and songs go in Lucia Parade with candles to the Christmas Party. They also visit old age homes and sing the carols.
We have to renovations day every year and is held typically on a weekend in spring and autumn . On this day, parents and staff work together at renovating any broken things and our premises as well as washing and cleaning things both indoor and outdoor. We make sure that the playground is well maintained and expanded, so it will always be a challenging and inviting playground for the children, with room for a lot of activities. We work, chat, eat Mao’s delicious food and have fun together.
Annual Parents’ Meeting
We have two parents’ meeting each year – one being parents consultation and the other is a common parents meeting for all parents. At the parents’ consultation, we always hope that both parents will have the possibility to participate. Here you get an insight into your child’s well-being and development and we find solutions to challenges, if any. At the common parents meeting the parents will receive relevant information regarding the institution and various subject will be taken up for discussion.
