We enjoyed throwing open our doors for one of our signature community events for the year.
About 300 people attended The Infants' Home Annual Art Show and Exhibition this year – an occasion when we celebrate the creativity of the young children in our care.
Children from our five early education and care centres love the chance to display their original works of art for parents, neighbours, extended family, and the local community.
The exhibition is also an opportunity for everyone to appreciate that nurturing a child’s creativity is as important as developing numeracy and literacy.
Each one of our early childhood education centres had a unique way of representing the theme of this year's exhibition – Strong Roots New Beginnings.
The theme says much about where The Infants’ Home is today – soon to open the first stage of our new early education and care centre after 139 years of caring for children and families.
"Our Art Show is one of the signature events of our year and it is a wonderful day," says The Infants’ Home CEO, Anita Kumar.
"We are always amazed at the children’s willingness to engage with new ideas, and their passion for exploring different ways of doing things. It is inspirational.
"And I don’t think I’ve ever been as popular as I was for those 15 minutes cutting the cake!"
