Children from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in Aylesbury have been celebrating the Queen’s extraordinary life and service with a series of tributes and activities at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Wendover Road, children showcased their creativity by making picture collages and drawing their interpretations of Her Majesty, as well as looking at iconic photographs and moments in history from her 70-year reign.
As part of the learning experience, pre-schoolers also created cards and co-researched the visible changes we will see moving forward to everyday items such as stamps and currency, as well as learning more about the new King and the national anthem.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Team Leader, Lauren Trotter explained;
“We were all deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, especially after the wonderful Jubilee celebrations we enjoyed over the summer at nursery. We are sensitively handling the children’s questions and are now focusing on celebrating her amazing life through painting, crafting and discussion.”
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.
