March: Festivals & Observances

This March, we set out on a journey to nurture kindness and compassion in the hearts and minds of our young ones. This month, our focus is on the core value of To Be Good (德), delving into the principles of moral uprightness, empathy, and integrity that form the bedrock of our nursery and childcare services. As we honor the remarkable women in our lives, we celebrate Mother's Day (母亲节) with heartfelt appreciation and gratitude. Discover how we commemorate this special occasion with our little ones, recognizing the love, sacrifice, and unwavering support of mothers and maternal figures everywhere. March also marks the celebration of Red Nose Day (红鼻子日), a time for us to come together and raise awareness and funds for children in need. Learn how we engage our young learners in fun and meaningful activities to support this worthy cause, spreading joy and making a positive impact in the lives of others.
