There were exciting learning opportunities at every turn for children at Greengables Day Nursery in Owlsmoor as they received a special visit from a local author and dancer.
At the award-winning setting on Yeovil Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to welcome talented Katie Dawson, who read her new book ‘Mr Bojangles Loves to Dance’ to the captivated group, before teaching them a series of dance moves from the story.
As part of the experience and linking with the plot about a dancing dog, the children were also able to learn some basic safety tips, including how to correctly approach animals.
Greengables Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Julia Grant explained;
“The children were absolutely thrilled to have Katie join us and they loved listening to her passionate storytelling. This was a hugely memorable experience which we hope will inspire creativity and a further love for reading and writing amongst the group.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard.
