Dear parents and carers,

At King Street Preschool we embrace and welcome people from all around the world. We learn from different cultures and traditions. Next week we will celebrate a traditional celebration for the Day of the Death from Ecuador.
Guaguas de pan –translates literally as bread babies –are sweet breads shaped into doll like figures. When you look at the bread’s shape you will see that it is reminiscent of a baby swaddled in a blanket, the word guagua, sometimes also known as wawa, means baby in Quechua. It is a traditional Ecuadorian custom to have these breads, along with a purple corn & fruit drink called colada morada, on November 2nd for the Day of the Deceased (Dia de los Difuntos). The traditions around this holiday vary for one place to another, but the holiday is meant to honor the memory of relatives and friends who have passed away.
If you have any special celebrations during the year that you would like to share with the children, please let us know so we can plan together.
