There was delight for children at Greengables Day Nursery in Owlsmoor as they received the generous donation of a Tonies box and accessories, having been nominated by a kind-hearted parent from the Yeovil Road setting as part of the ‘Tonies on Foot’ scheme.
The scheme, which appealed to members of the public to nominate worthy community organisations including schools, libraries and hospitals, was applied to by nursery parent, Steph Bowring, with her application granted for the nursery to receive a Tonies box, headphones and a total of four character figures complete with stories and songs.
The Tonies box is now being enjoyed by groups of all ages across the nursery, with figurines including Disney Baby Lullabies and In the Night Garden for younger children and Paw Patrol and Paddington for pre-schoolers, supporting interests and key skills ready for school.
Greengables Day Nursery Quality Manager, Shannon Axtell explained;
“We are so grateful to Steph for nominating us for this scheme as Tonies is such a brilliant resource which has already proved so popular within the nursery. As well as fostering creativity and imagination and helping develop communication and language skills, the Tonies box is a fantastic tool for introducing technology to the children. We are now looking forward to adding to our collection of figures to immerse ourselves in a world of new stories.”
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.
