Festivities were well underway at Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon as families and colleagues gathered for a ‘Very Royal Tea Party’ in the gardens outside.
As part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, parents were invited to join their children at the award-winning setting on Whitehill Way, where they enjoyed a selection of homemade treats, including cakes, sandwiches and scones, as well as taking part in a charity raffle to raise vital funds for Bliss, helping to raise over £500 for the worthy cause.
Across the setting, pre-schoolers also took part in a range of activities to mark Her Majesty’s 70-year reign, from making their own crowns and researching London and its palaces, to learning a Jubilee song which was performed for parents during the occasion.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;
“We had a brilliant time commemorating this special event in history with a range of themed activities across the nursery and it was lovely to have parents join us too. The children loved preparing for the tea party and this presented a fantastic opportunity to develop language skills, learn more about British history and promote a wider understanding of the world.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
