Mummy Day Care Centre organised its fifth annual family funfair on Saturday.
The event, held at Lizzy’s Sports Complex at East Legon, brought children, parents and teachers together to interact and have fun in a serene environment.

With sponsorship from the producers of Cowbell, Onga, Indomie and Noble Prints, the programme was attended by about 300 parents and children.

With the main aim of getting children to play freely, meet new friends and enjoy their day, the family funfair engaged children in activities such as talent hunt, face painting, raffles, musical chairs and playing in Cowbell’s giant bouncy castles.

Organisers made available free optical services for all present. There was also an Aero Summer School stand to brief interested children on basic aviation guidelines.

When asked about their experience, most of the children gave positive replies, generally saying that the funfair was amazing and expressed the hope of attending similar programmes in future.

In an interview with the Daily Graphic, the Chief Executive Officer of the Day Care Centre, Mrs Linda Boatema Dzameshie, said the funfair was organised to give schoolchildren an opportunity to entertain themselves outside their classrooms and in a safe environment.

She urged parents to spend time with their children as it created a relaxing atmosphere for the family to have the benefit of appreciating its members.

She also advised that parents and guardians paid particular attention to the training their children received and observe their behaviours in their early years since, according to her, the foundation period were a critical moment in their lives.
