Budding young chefs from Seabrook Day Nursery in Luton were delighted to showcase their culinary skills as they created homemade apple crumble following a special masterclass.
Using produce that they picked from trees in the garden outside, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Lewsey Road were helped by talented Nursery Chef, Vikki Mitchell, as she guided them through the cooking process.
As part of the learning experience, children practiced their counting and followed instructions closely, as well as discussing the importance of good nutrition to healthy lifestyles.
Seabrook Day Nursery Chef, Vikki Mitchell explained;
“The children had a brilliant time making the crumble and this provided many opportunities to build confidence in the kitchen, as well as encourage the use of new language, develop fine motor skills and practice basic maths concepts through weighing and measuring.”
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.
