Yesterday I overheard my oldest son, Clement, 6 years old, giving advice to his younger brother Emile who just celebrated his third birthday. Clement is leaving kindergarten soon to start in September in primary education, Emile has been going to kindergarten since January and is really enjoying it.
What was the advice Clement gave to his follow up in kindergarten?
- Always present yourself to everybody stating your name. I always have said to everybody ‘Hi, I am Clement’ and ask who they are!
- Always be friendly and say hi.
- And you will see that everybody will know you and like you.
And now we know why indeed everybody seems to know Clement, both children, parents and teachers.
