IT was a cold autumn morning on Thursday.
But, inside Goodstart Early Learning Muswellbrook, it was warm and toasty, and smelled of freshly baked date bread.
In the backyard, yellow balloons and activities indicated an important day on the centre’s calendar.
For the fourth year in a row, Goodstart Muswellbrook hosted a Biggest Morning Tea event, in aid of Cancer Council NSW.
Centre events manager Emma Russell said a lot of people in the community were affected by cancer.
“It’s great to see that family involvement in the event,” she said.
“We all get together on the one day.”
From the little ones in the nursery who will be able to notice the significance of the yellow around the centre, to the preschoolers who were told of the purpose of the day – there was something for every child to take away.
Ms Russell said the centre would definitely like to continue the event in the future.
“We have a team in Muswellbrook Relay for Life as well,” she said.
“We’ve also got a purple day in the coming months.”
