Trunky the Elephant
Meet Trunky – Caring Kindergartens Mascot
At Caring Kindergartens, we are very proud to have Trunky the Elephant as both a special friend and a frequent visitor to our nurseries. Trunky will often attend open days, graduation ceremonies and other special occasions as he enjoys celebrating the accomplishments of the children and their development.
Trunky participates in activities in a meaningful way when at the nursery, reflecting the children’s emotions. He may be shy at first and then act in a comical way during a music and movement session. He is always ready to greet the children with hugs and a big smile.
This illustrates perfectly why mascots are so valuable in teaching children. They identify with mascots that may have some things in common with them. They feel that they have a buddy to share these special moments with.
We also have mini Trunky and Trunkette who can attend a special event in your child’s life or come along on holiday with the whole family. Your child can collate illustrations and photographs of their time together and then use Trunky (or Trunkette) as a prop when sharing their stories with their friends, thus finding it easier to relate to these experiences and reminding them of what they have been enjoying.
