Festivities were well underway at Lime Grove Day Nursery in Hemel Hempstead as children enjoyed a French-inspired day to support classmates with English as an additional language.
Beginning their morning with a spread of fresh croissants, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Park Road were delighted to explore an array of French songs, including ‘Frère Jacques’, before discussing the country and its famous landmarks.
As part of the learning experience, children showcased their creativity with art activities centred around painter Pablo Picasso, who spent most of his adult life in France, focusing on his unique cubist style, before enjoying homemade French soup and bread for their dinner.
Lime Grove Day Nursery Team Leader, Robyn Shuck explained;
“We had a fantastic time introducing French to our children and this was a hugely exciting experience for bilingual members of the group. This was not only a brilliant opportunity to support them in their learning journey, but to further knowledge on the world around them.”
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.
