Chicks bring joy to Knowle Green

There were learning opportunities at every turn for children at Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines as they learnt about life cycles first-hand with the help of some special additions.

At the award-winning setting on Knowle Green, children of all ages were delighted to follow the journey from start to finish as they closely monitored living eggs in an incubator, before watching them hatch into fluffy chicks, learning all about the exciting process through observations and how to care for the creatures in their early stages of life and development.

During the unique experience, the chicks were incorporated into a broad range of learning areas to help children build on STEM knowledge, as well as promoting caring and nurturing skills and personal responsibility by carrying out duties such as replenishing food and water.

Knowle Green Nursery Manager, Chanelle Weaver explained;

“As educators we are constantly looking for ways to make learning fun and engaging for our little ones. This hands-on experience was a perfect way to foster curiosity about the world around them and create lasting memories. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to see the joy and wonder on the children’s faces as they watched the new life emerging.”
