Following an interest in ‘people that help us’, children from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans were delighted to welcome local police officers to the setting to learn more.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on York Road, pre-schoolers were captivated as they listened to the officers speak about their important role in keeping people safe within the community, before giving the group a guided tour of the specialist police car and sirens.
As part of the exciting learning opportunity, the Hertfordshire constables showed children the equipment they used as part of their role, which inspired role play activities back indoors, as well as answering questions, sharing tips for staying safe and posing for group photographs.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Manager, Claire Greaves explained;
“Lots of our children are fascinated with the police at the moment, so we are incredibly grateful to them for taking the time out of their busy day to create such a memorable learning experience. The visit really has had a lasting impact on our little ones and has given them a much better understanding, as well as fostering a real sense of admiration and respect.”
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.
