The Winter Gala is a winter performance in our center that invites current families to attend an event at our center. The children will perform a collection of songs, poems, finger plays, or other material from the curriculum. What are the Goals and Objectives of this event? Historically we see a dip In enrollment In January as a result of families not returning to the center after the winter holiday.
The goal of the Winter Gala is to keep families engaged with the center during the winter holidays when vacation and time way from the center can cause families to feel disconnected.
