Celebrating Lillie | Amazing Place Preschool Graduation

Today was a very special day for Lillie.  Today was her graduation from Amazing Place Preschool!



At Amazing Place Preschool we celebrate this milestone with a special graduation celebration.

We celebrate the child’s birthday and graduation together at mat time. The child gets to sit on a special decorated chair wearing a crown!

Sometimes the family of the child brings in a cake, sometimes, we make one in the morning together with the children. The child is presented with their birthday card and we all sing them happy birthday and cheer as they blow out their 5 candles.

The child’s key teacher then shares some of the special things about the child and shows some photos of their preschool journey from their profile book.  Finally, the child is presented with their profile book, artwork and their very own children’s bible which has a special message written inside. 



Lillie, we have loved getting to know you.
