Ducklings bring joy to Sandfield children

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

At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Sandfield Road, 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 ducklings, learning all about the exciting process through observations and how to care for the creatures in their early stages of life.

During the unique experience, the ducklings were incorporated into a broad range of learning areas to help 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.

Sandfield Day Nursery Business Administrator, Becci Worth explained;

“Through this exciting experience, our little ones developed a deeper understanding of the circle of life and the importance of nurturing and caring for living creatures. It was heartwarming to see how much joy and excitement this project brought to the children, and we are proud to provide these types of unique and engaging learning opportunities.”
