Festivities were well underway at Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines as pre-schoolers showcased their creativity with a series of themed activities to celebrate Burns Night.
Having carried out their own co-research, pre-schoolers from the award-winning setting on Knowle Green were delighted to learn more about Scotland and the special calendar event, which is marked on the birthday of beloved poet Robert Burns, to honour his life and works.
As part of the celebrations, children created Scottish flags using an array of blue and white materials, as well as the country’s national flower; the thistle, before taking to the kitchen to bake their very own traditional shortbread biscuits with the help of talented Nursery Chefs.
Knowle Green Day Nursery Manager, Chanelle Weaver explained;
“Our children had a fantastic time celebrating Burns Night and it was wonderful to introduce them to the rich heritage of Scotland. It’s really special to witness them embrace and appreciate different cultures through experiences like these, and we really believe that early exposure to such traditions helps foster respect and understanding amongst our little ones.”
Burns Night is marked annually on 25th January.
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.
