“We left for our parade, just a short loop outside the nursery, dressed in costumes and with music.

“We asked parents to come and social distance along the sidewalks outside the nursery and also informed local businesses of the parade. It was so nice to do something that involved parents because we couldn’t do anything like that because of Covid. It was also nice to be able to do something for one of our collaborators, Irène Mallol, she’s Spanish and she missed being able to go back to Spain , it was his first carnival under the snow.

“The kids loved it which was the most important thing about it.”
