Despite being known as the ‘gloomiest day of the year’, colleagues from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon were determined not to let ‘Blue Monday’ dampen their spirits as they enjoyed a series of wellbeing themed celebrations across the setting.
At the award-winning day nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park, Whitehill Way, children and staff dressed in their brightest clothing and embarked on a series of feel-good activities, from rainbow pasta play and colour mixing, to creating biscuits and making birdhouses to encourage wildlife into the garden for all to admire.
Meanwhile, devoted colleagues were able to enjoy a table of blue themed treats on their breaks courtesy of their grateful managers, complete with handmade frosted cupcakes, lollies and a selection of sweets as the perfect antidote to Monday blues.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;
“There are no Blue Monday’s here at Windmill Hill as the team always create endless opportunities for fun and learning and the children bring so much joy. Wellbeing is more important than ever and being able to put a smile on everyone’s faces really means a lot in these challenging times, we had a brilliant day.”
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.
