Little Zak’s Celebrates NSW Grandparents’ Day
Little Zak’s Academy in Jordan Springs is among the biggest childcare providers in the area. It caters to children aged 0-6years.
NSW Grandparents Day recognises the role grandparents and older people play in our society – both things they have done and the things they continue to do.
To celebrate and thank their elderly community, Little Zak’s recently visited their local aged care facility, RSL LifeCare – Governor Phillip Manor in Penrith. Little Zak’s organised to take their pre-schoolers on the trip to meet with the local elderly residents and to spend quality time with them. During their visit, they enjoyed a morning tea, read story books, played and the children organised songs to perform to the residents.
This was not the children’s first time visiting the aged care facility. Since late 2018, Little Zak’s visits the residents on a monthly basis and have set up a pen-pal activity as the children love their time with the elderly.
Little Zak’s Academy Jordan Springs Centre Director, Leanne Gill said “Little Zak’s is a family-owned service provider that opened its doors in 2014. During our years of operation, we have many local families who utilise Little Zak’s and we strive to provide the best quality care for children within the local community”.
“We love to teach our children the importance of giving back and the positive impact older generations have on our lives and community” added Leanne.
