Bright Horizons was excited to sponsor the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center's Family Pride Picnic in NYC this past weekend.
To join in celebrating diversity and inclusion of all families, we sponsored the "make your own Pride flag" project and had LGBT Books of Excellence for reading.
At our booth, children and their parents could use a variety of art materials to create their flag. As in our classrooms, children were provided with very little guidelines as to what their flag could look like. Instead, we gave them the tools and allowed their creativity to lead the way.
While the end product was a great take-away for the children, we were sure to explain how the fine motor development, language and social skills, and creative process were our main goals.
