Festivities were well underway at Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell as families and colleagues gathered for a ‘Very Royal Tea Party’ in the gardens outside.
As part of celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, parents were invited to join their children at the award-winning setting on Westbury Lane, where they enjoyed a selection of homemade treats, including cakes, sandwiches and scones, as well as taking part in a charity raffle to raise vital funds for Bliss, helping to support poorly babies.
Pre-schoolers were delighted to showcase their creativity by making their very own fabric bunting to set the scene, decorated with individual paintings, handprints and even race car tracks, making up over 150 triangles which were then sewn together by talented staff.
Meadow View Day Nursery Manager, Liz Hofman explained;
“We had a brilliant time commemorating this special event in history with a range of themed activities across the nursery and it was lovely to have parents join us too. The children loved preparing for the tea party and this presented a fantastic opportunity to develop language skills, learn more about British history and promote a wider understanding of the world.”
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.
