Festivities were well underway at West Cambridge Day Nursery as children and colleagues dressed up in costume to celebrate Halloween with a special bake sale, all in aid of charity.
With outfits ranging from skeletons and superheroes to cats and witches, pre-schoolers and practitioners from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Charles Babbage Road were delighted to raise over £200.00 for The Trussell Trust food bank network with the spooky sale, with sweet treats including ghost and pumpkin biscuits and spider cupcakes.
During the celebrations, children showcased their creativity by making spooky arts and crafts and carving and decorating pumpkins, as well as using the insides for sensory play and exploration and reading themed stories including ‘Room on the Broom’ and ‘Funny Bones’.
West Cambridge Business Administrator, Amanda Derouich explained;
“The Trussell Trust is a fantastic cause that helps combat food poverty by providing emergency food parcels and support to local people in need. We had a brilliant time celebrating Halloween in nursery and are thrilled to have made this impact with the help of our wonderful nursery families, who always show so much kindness and compassion.”
West Cambridge have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising 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.
