Chick, Chick, Chick Chicken at Twyford Day Nursery
It’s been animals galore at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford as the children celebrate all things pets.
To bring learning to life, practitioners arranged for live eggs to be brought into nursery to allow the children to experience the hatching of chicks whilst supporting and developing their understanding of lifecycles.
Cedar Park Manager Emma Kemp said:
“Knowledge and understanding of the world is an established pillar of learning in the EYFS. The arrival of eggs and their subsequent hatching has caused great wonderment and excitement in the nursery. The children have been able to help care for the chicks as well as make scientific recordings about their behaviour.”
The chicks have now been rehomed by the family of a child in nursery who lives on a farm. They are looking forward to regular updates on the chicks progress as they grow into adult chickens.
