Festivities were well underway at Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon as children took part in a range of themed activities to celebrate Chinese New Year.
From creating their very own ‘red pockets’ which are placed under pillows to bring good luck and fortune, to tasting an array of traditional foods including fortune cookies, noodles and prawn crackers, pre-schoolers from the award-winning setting on Windmill Hill Business Park, Whitehill Way were immersed in the festivities.
To further the learning experience, children were inspired to research tigers and their habitats to welcome ‘The Year of the Tiger’, before making Chinese bracelets.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;
“The children had a brilliant time celebrating Chinese New Year and this provided endless opportunities to showcase creativity. We believe it’s important to teach the children about a broad range of cultural events to give them a greater understanding of the world around them and celebrate diversity within our local community.”
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.
