Cobblebank’s Teddy Bear Picnic and Cultural Diversity

Teddy Bear Picnic

On July 10th, Aspire Cobblebank hosted a Teddy Bear Picnic Day. Traditionally, this day is about an activity involving teddy bears that brings children and parents together to have fun, enjoy the day, and feel safe.

For our Teddy Bear Picnic Day, we celebrated the theme of culture and the diverse needs of all children in our center by observing how each child dressed their teddy bears. Some children chose to dress their teddy bears in traditional cultural attire, representing their family heritage, while others chose outfits that expressed their personal preferences. This symbolised the idea that every child possesses their own individual narrative, identity, and story, highlighting our commitment to inclusivity and meeting the diverse needs of all children.

To showcase our commitment to cultural diversity, we were honoured to have our friends Julie Shannon (Deputy Mayor of the Melton City Council), Sophie Ramsey (Councillor of the Melton City Council- Coburn ward) and Aspire Cobblebank families attend the picnic day.

It was a great morning with our local community and our Aspire children who loved dressing their teddy bears up.
