2023 has been an exciting and successful year for Aspire Early Education & Kindergarten Deanside. From cultural events to engaging activities, both the students and educators alike have had a year full of fun. It’s incredible to see how far Aspire Deanside has come in just a short time since first welcoming families in May!
Easily the biggest Aspire Deanside highlights were the Open Day event and Grand Opening of the centre midway through the year. Over 1000 people visited the centre during the Open Day at the end of April. There were so many fun activities like Farmer Daryl’s Animal Farm and face painting. A crowd pleaser was the live performance by Emma Wiggle and Blippi! The kids danced and sung along to some of their favourite songs.

Not long after the successful Open Day event, the centre opened its doors fully in May! The opening of this new centre was a massive success, and an overall Aspire highlight for 2023.
The centre has built itself as a pillar of the local community and aims to continue to grow its connections. Keep an eye out for some exciting community events in 2024!
When the staff were asked about their highlights, Centre Support Coordinator Sanskruti thoroughly enjoyed the centre’s Diwali celebrations. “Our Diwali celebration was the best and most emotional moment, because all our team members dressed up and shared food with the children,” she stated. “The best part was decorating the whole centre together and seeing the children participate in different activities.”
“Thank you to Lee-Anne and Meloney and everyone who participated.” Sanskruti shared. “Even though we are away from our hometown to share this celebration, it felt like we celebrated it with family, so thank you to the team for supporting us.”
It was a truly beautiful time to share a wonderful tradition and culture with the children.
What a thrill it has been to see the exciting growth of Aspire Early Education Deanside in 2023! From opening its doors to treasured memories made during events throughout the year, we are so excited to see where 2024 takes this centre.
