COVID-19 has brought much disappointment in 2020 with the cancellation of so many birthday parties, weddings, communions, confirmations and of course graduation ceremonies! However, the important thing is that everyone is safe and continues to stay safe until restrictions are lifted. During the Summer months many Early Years Services did get creative coming up with other ways to celebrate, including hosting Virtual graduations, Drive By Graduations and Drive Through Graduations and others decided to cancel until restrictions were lifted! The most important part of a graduation is acknowledging achievement by family, friends and educators. This gives the children a sense of pride and accomplishment and one that will form part of their life long memories. Graduations can involve special recognition of children and their unique talents and personalities and bring great value to a child’s social development. Young children love to be praised and this creates a positive attitude towards learning from a very young age.
If you are still planning on having a Preschool graduation at the end of the year we have the perfect gowns for your service! At graduations.ie the Preschool graduation gown and cap sets come in four beautiful colours (red, blue, black and gold) and include a cap (mortar) and tassel with 2020 year charm. The tassel is detachable and can be gifted to the children as a keepsafe if desired. The gowns are made of poly-cotton and have a zip front with a matte finish. The gowns are lightweight, washable and can be used year after year once they are looked after and stored correctly. If you already have gowns from previous years and just require new tassels and/or 2020 year charms we have these available individually also. The gowns are one size and are suitable for children between the ages of 3 and 6 years. For more information on our gowns just visit our website graduations.ie .
