There were exciting opportunities at every turn for children at Highfield Day Nursery in Edgbaston as they showcased their skills during a special Sports Day at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Highfield Road, children of all ages were delighted to try a range of physical activities, from younger groups taking part in sponsored walks and exercises to develop motor skills, to older children trying some traditional Sports Day challenges including the egg and spoon race, sack race, relay and obstacle courses.
During the festivities, children worked together in teams to follow the rules and learn new techniques, whilst families and colleagues made donations to The Trussell Trust, raising a grand total of £273.00 for the worthy cause, which will help local people facing hardship.
Highfield Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Louise Walker explained;
“The children had a fantastic Sports Day and were thrilled to try some of these activities for the very first time. Not only was it lots of fun, but brilliant for developing key skills such as co-ordination, balance, teamwork and self-esteem. We are also incredibly pleased to be able to make this donation to The Trussell Trust with the help of our generous families, who do such crucial work in providing emergency food parcels to those who need it most.”
Highfield 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.
