The Winter Holiday Party
Was a Big Success
Our party went well! Children performed dances and songs. After the performance we had a big holiday cake and healthy drinks. Parents took photo sessions of their kids near the Christmas tree. All children received individual holiday gifts from our daycare. You can see holiday party pictures in our Gallery .
