Lights off at Bedford Day Nursery for Earth Hour
Preschoolers at Lavender’s Day Nursery at Bushmead Avenue in Bedford have marked Earth Hour with a range of learning activities.
The nursery interactive whiteboard was used by the children to research the planet and the reasons why we need to look after it. They looked at how little things done every day can make a big difference including switching off lights and electrical equipment.
Lights were switched off in preschool for one hour. They used glow sticks to create letters and spell their names and ended with a ‘glow stick celebration tea’.
The nursery already holds an Eco-Schools Bronze Award for its commitment to the environment and green initiatives. They are currently working towards a Silver award.
Lavenders Manager Juliana Di ‘Niro said:
“Protecting the environment is everyone’s responsibility and we encourage children to think about the world around us from an early age. Earth Day was an excellent way of demonstrating what we can all do to make a positive, green change.”
Earth Hour aims to inspire millions of people to make positive changes internationally, to protect our planet.
