Christmas came early for children at Devonshire Day Nursery in Chiswick as they enjoyed a festive party at the setting with their families, as well as a visit from inspiring local heroes.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bennett Street, families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas event, complete with themed crafting activities including wreath making, bauble decorating, festive games and singing of favourite Christmas songs.
During the party, children were delighted to receive a special visit from Santa Claus, who spoke to the children about their Christmas wishes and handed out an early present for all.
Throughout December, pre-schoolers also enjoyed a visit from the London Fire Brigade, who gave the captivated group a guided tour of the fire engine and its sirens, before speaking to them about the equipment used to extinguish flames and the protective clothing worn.
As part of the informative safety talk, children were able to try radios, torches and the digital map in the cab of the fire engine, much to their delight, before having an inspiring conversation on equality, having been thrilled to be in the presence of a female firefighter.
Devonshire Day Nursery Manager, Emmy Avery explained;
“We have had a brilliant December at Devonshire and the children particularly loved having the important adults in their lives come to nursery for a special afternoon of celebrations. The firefighter visit was also a fantastic experience for our pre-schoolers, who have been learning all about the people in the community that help us, with this session giving them a much better understanding of the work that the emergency services do to keep us safe. We are hugely grateful to them for giving up their time to make this opportunity so memorable.”
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.
