Eid al-Fitr celebrations at Crescent

Crescent Eid

Festivities were well underway at Crescent Day Nursery in Edgbaston as children and colleagues marked Eid al-Fitr with a series of exciting activities and celebrations.

Dressed in bright colours and traditional clothing, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Calthorpe Road showcased their creativity as they made Mehndi patterns and greetings cards for loved ones, all whilst learning more about the significance of the festival and special customs from their resident expert practitioners.

As part of the learning experience, children enjoyed taking to the kitchen with talented Nursery Chefs to create vegetable samosas, spring rolls and chocolate covered dates, whilst staff teams made beautiful displays in the reception area to give families a better insight into Eid al-Fitr, before enjoying a custom made cake, courtesy of their Nursery Managers.

Crescent Day Nursery Manager, Laura Whittingham explained;

“We had a fantastic time celebrating Eid and are hugely grateful to our wonderful team for helping to create such rich learning opportunities for both children and staff. At Crescent, we believe in fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment where everyone can learn and grow together. Celebrating events like Eid is not only a great way to teach children about cultural diversity, but also to promote kindness and understanding in our community.”

Eid al-Fitr was celebrated on 10th April 2024.
