Festivities were well underway at Crescent Day Nursery in Edgbaston as families gathered at the setting for a fun-filled Christmas Stay and Play, all whilst raising vital funds for charity.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Calthorpe Road, parents joined their children for a morning of Christmas crafts, with activities including bauble making and decorating, themed sensory play, a sparkly playdough creation station, letter writing to Santa, collage making and more, before ending with Christmas cakes for all to enjoy.
During the celebrations, pre-schoolers were also delighted to visit Santa Claus and his helpers in the specially decorated grotto area, where they spoke to him about their hopes for the new year and each received an early present ahead of Christmas Day, with the session raising over £280.00 for The Trussell Trust food bank network to help local people in need.
Crescent Day Nursery Manager, Laura Whittingham explained;
“We have had a fantastic time getting in the Christmas spirit here at Crescent and it was wonderful to involve our lovely nursery families in some of these activities. We are so appreciative of all the support they’ve given us in fundraising for our charity of the year, The Trussell Trust, and are thrilled to be making this final donation to help feed the community.”
Crescent have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising and donation drive.
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.
