First Day at Kindergarten for Alexia
Yesterday morning princess Alexia of The Netherlands started her first day in kindergarten. She arrived in the company of her parents, and her older sister princess Amalia at the Bloemcamp school in Wassenaar, where she will start in group 1A.
On the blackboard it said: ‘Welcome Alexia’, and the little princess chair was next to the teacher and a friend she knew from the playgroup. The little princess looked a bit overwhelmed, and held her mothers hand and later even her fathers finger for a while. Later in the morning the other children in the class would sing to Alexia, a special welcoming ballad, in French and in Dutch. ‘We do that for all new children, or for children who have their birthday’. The song says that every child on earth twinkles like a star, ‘all children know it by heart’, said Carla Buijs.
The princess will only go to kindergarten for two weeks, as the summer vacations will start soon. According to newspaper ‘Telegraaf‘ the reason why princess Alexia did not go to school after the summer holidays was because on that day a lot of children will have their first new school day and their parents were worried that the photographers would frighten their children.Dutch Royals
