Stepping Stone makes the day for grandparents, teaches kids to bond
Grandparents' Day was celebrated on October 20 at Stepping Stone pre-school in Navipeth. The aim of the event was to bring joy and happiness to the senior citizens. It started with tiny tots decked up in "Dada-Dadi" attire giving roses to the elderly and receiving their blessings. There was a "Teddy Bear" race and "Sunflower Race" in which children as well as grandparents took part. There was also a music and dance event where both the children and grandparents participated. It was followed by a musical chair exclusively for the grandmothers and grandfathers. The event was held to inculcate family bonds and values in children.
Talking about the reason behind celebrating grandparents day, Rajni Deshmukh, Principal, Stepping Stone pre-school said, "Nowadays, people often tend to ignore grandparents. Due to the nuclear family system, kids hardly know the importance of grandparents. We wanted to make the child realize that it is fun to be with grandparents. It was also a happy experience for the grandparents."
