Cedar Park Day Nursery scoop top eco-accreditation

Cedar Park Green Flag

There was cause for celebration at Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford as proud children and colleagues learnt that they had received another sought-after eco-accreditation.

Following a sustained environmental project and curriculum of ‘green’ topics involving children of all ages, pre-schoolers from the award-winning setting on Bridge Farm Road were delighted to scoop the prestigious Green Flag with Distinction, the top award in the international scheme which is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness practices.

The activities, which include growing herbs and vegetables, creating habitats for wildlife, crafting with natural and recycled materials and community litter picking sessions, are designed to promote the development of personal, social and emotional life skills, all whilst introducing children to basic maths, science and environmental messages ready for school.

Cedar Park also has its own dedicated Eco-Committee, which is led by devoted Eco-Representative, Amber Webb, and made up of a number of Pre-School children who take a lead role in ensuring the rest of nursery is environmentally considerate by ensuring resources like paper aren’t wasted, taps are not left running and that knowledge is shared.

Cedar Park Day Nursery Manager, Rachael Main explained;

“We are committed to giving children the best possible future here at Cedar Park and caring for the environment plays a huge part in that. The respect and care they have for the world around them is inspiring to see and bodes incredibly well for their adult lives. They absolutely love the activities on offer and are so proud to have their achievements recognised.” 

Childbase Partnership has recently been named ‘Early Years Provider of the Year’ by Keep Britain Tidy for earning the Eco-Schools ‘Green Flag’ award in every single nursery setting, a record-breaking sector first, which recognises exceptional environmental awareness efforts.
