The children were surprised with a special visit from Father Christmas! The big man himself came along and was very pleased with the special area that we had created for him, he said it was like a home from home! Preschool were the first to get the chance to tell him what they would like for Christmas, and in true Santa style he assured them all that he would do his best to get them everything they wanted! (You will be pleased to know that no-one asked for a hatchimal!)
The 2-3 year olds in our intermediate room were a little overwhelmed, but everyone had a fantastic time visiting Father Christmas and then unwrapping their special gift, for some of them it was difficult to get them to leave the paper on until they had spoken with santa!
When it was time for Father Christmas to leave, he wished everyone a very Merry Christmas and promised to visit East Malling first on Christmas Eve!
