Sweetheart Day – or February 14 - is close to the hearts of staff and families at Goodstart Early Learning Centre, since their little friend Albie required heart surgery at two days old.
Albie and his mum Kasey Schatz visited the Preschool room on Wednesday to start helping the children understand the day.
It was not only a fundraiser, but also a learning experience for the children as they learn about compassion and empathy, and the importance of helping those less fortunate than themselves.
Sweetheart day raises much-needed funds for kids, teens and adults affected by congenital/childhood heart disease all across Australia, each Valentine’s Day.
Goodstart would like to thank all the families who generously donated to the cause with a morning tea raising $153.15.
