Somos Un Mundo! – Annual Cultural Event
Let’s Celebrate Cultures Around the World!
Bring the whole family and join us for a trip around the world as we celebrate the beautiful diversity that makes our community so special. The Little Big Minds One World/Un Mundo celebration is for all LBM families from all campuses to join hands as we learn about cultures, music, foods, and traditions around the world.
- At Little Big Minds, celebrating world cultures is a core principal. Each month we create opportunities for our children to explore different regions, traditions, culinary delights and music from around the world. Developing an early understanding and appreciation for what makes us different and the same is central to nurturing tolerance and respect. As citizens of the world, we all play an important role in loving and caring for one another.
Each year we host a Somos un Mundo event. This, more than any other event, speaks to who we are; we are One World. On this one day, we bring all of our Little Big Minds campuses together to explore cultures of the world. Members of our community share their heritage and history through sample foods, music, dress and games to introduce children to the wonders around us. We are proud of the diversity in our preschool community; we believe that our differences are the foundation of rich human and cultural connection. As part of our LBM family, we hope that you will join us for this joyous community event – Somos un Mundo!
Stay tuned for more information.
Volunteer as a Culture Ambassador
We are looking for “Culture Ambassadors.” If you are from a different country (or simply love to visit a certain region of the world) we invite you to serve as one of our very special Somos Un Mundo/One World tour guides.
Little Big Minds will provide a display board, all you need to do is add some pictures of:
- the country flag or map of the region
- favorite sporting event
- traditional dress
- or any other items that represent what is great about the country or region
No need to go to great lengths. Everything can be easily downloaded off the internet (what did we do before Google?)
We would also love it if you could bring a sample of the local cuisine to give kids a taste of various ethnic foods. A bite-sized sample will suffice but, you should plan on enough for about 100 “little tastes” (ie… a small meatball from Italy or a small taste of cheese from Switzerland.) Of course, if you have any trinkets or souvenirs that you are willing to display, that would be great, too.
This event, more than any other, speaks to our heart as a preschool. We hope you will help us come together to celebrate the cultures and customs that make our community so vibrant.
