A valuable lesson for children

STAFF at a local pre-school is teaching children a valuable lesson – the gift of giving.

Gardiner Avenue Children’s Centre asked families to bring in donations to benefit a child care centre in Goodna which had lost everything in the Queensland floods.

Pre-school room leader Moira Pratt drove up to deliver all the goods yesterday to Kaleidoscope Child Care Centre which is due to reopen on March 7.

Authorised supervisor, Shelley Gray said they had received an overwhelming response from families at the centre.

“This is such a wonderful opportunity for our centre to be part of the wider community and for staff to be able to model for our children - care for others, empathy and respect for those around us, especially those that are going through hardship,” Ms Gray said.
