Childcare Totaal about Celebrating with attention

Published January 25, 2024

From 2024, we at Wiedewei will celebrate festive moments not with a treat but with attention. Because we think treats in the form of something tasty or a gift no longer fit with what Wiedewei stands for. Otherwise? Yes, but it is certainly no less a party. Because if it's a child's birthday, we won't let this pass by! For example, he or she can spin the Wiedewei wheel or choose a fun activity to do with the group. And the party is not complete without a beautiful natural crown. This way the birthday boy or girl receives extra attention and the children learn that celebrating a party does not always have to be accompanied by (unhealthy) food or a present.

Suzanne Krijger, pedagogical policy officer and coach at Wiedewei, was interviewed about this by Kinderopvang Totaal.
