Festivities were well underway at Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon as families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas Fayre, all whilst raising money for charity ‘Bliss’.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park, Whitehill Way, pre-schoolers were transported to the North Pole with a visit to Santa’s Grotto where they each received an early Christmas present, before having their faces painted ready for a festive disco, complete with balloons and party lights.
As part of the celebrations, families also enjoyed a range of themed activities, including Christmas biscuit decorating and a tombola, raising a grand total of £750.00 for the worthy cause, which will now go towards helping babies born premature or sick and their families.
As a result of their fundraising efforts throughout the year, which have included colleagues spending a night ‘sleeping rough’ under the stars, a climb up Snowdon, sponsored scoot, dress up days and more, the nursery have helped contribute to the £160,000 raised so far by Childbase Partnership settings for Bliss since January.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Quality Manager, Gemma Gill explained;
“We have had an amazing year of fundraising for this incredible cause and the Christmas Fayre was the perfect way to end. It was wonderful to get in the festive spirit with our nursery families, who are so supportive, and celebrate all the achievements of the past year.”
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.
