Hair-raising fun at Knowle Green Day Nursery
Rollers and head massages have been in abundance at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Staines.
The children have set up a ‘Hairdressing Corner’ within the nursery as part of a child initiated activity. This was discovered after some children visited a real hairdressing salon and shared their experiences in nursery. Knowle Green’s highly trained nursery practitioners encouraged and expanded on this interest by supporting the children to learn more about hairdressing.
Nursery Manager Faye Walker said:
“Child initiated play is a key part of the learning journey at Knowle Green. We believe that children learn best when they have an interest and curiosity about a subject so we try to incorporate and expand on this as much as possible in nursery. The ‘Hairdressing Corner’ is one such example and has supported children’s learning about the world around them.”
