As we are a small Pre School we really try to encourage everyone to play with everyone most of the time – but there is always something magical about seeing children make a special friend. Having a special friend is a different kind of relationship where things are shared. A special friend understands you in a way that no other person does and accepts you for who you are – on the good days and bad. Today Bella and Cobi ‘officially’ became special friends. And what was lovely to see, was when the other girls wanted to join the game they were welcomed. Everyone note that I am using the word ‘special’ rather than ‘best’ to describe this friendship – and I find this makes all the difference.
