On December 2nd, Daddy Child Day was open to all students in the Early Years education program at both of the House of Knowledge campuses. Every year, Daddy Child Day is keenly anticipated and overwhelmingly adored by our students. The activity was first organized 10 years ago and has since grown to become one of the most important and beloved traditions at House of Knowledge. We hold this activity twice a year in May and December respectively, encouraging fathers to spend as much time as possible with their children, and have fun themselves too!
The Reggio Emilia approach to education sees parents, teachers and the environment as all playing an important role in child development. Parents especially play a vital role in the early years’ growth and development of a child. We believe that “A big hero lives in every kid’s heart; their father!” However, in today’s fast-moving society, fathers have grown increasingly busy with their work and thus have less time to spend with their children. House of Knowledge organizes Daddy Child Day to help enhance the father-child relationship and give fathers the opportunity to be a good role model for their children.
This year, participants in Daddy Child Day enjoyed themselves by playing games and exploring their creativity together. Fathers patiently assisted their children as they set about decorating Christmas trees, making Christmas cards, cooking gingerbread and waffles, designing photo frames and more. The day was a wonderful bonding experience, ending with fun and laughter all around.
Christmas is around the corner! See what blesses and surprises that Santa Clause has brought to HoK. He prepared a lot of gifts to the kids, friendly talked to them and warmly invited children to take a group photo with him. Wish you a Merry Christmas!
