Festivities were well underway at Nature Trails Day Nursery in Cawston as children and colleagues took part in a range of activities to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
At the award-winning setting on Coventry Road, children were delighted to create their very own bunting and paper chain decorations, as well as crowns encrusted with jewels and diamonds for a ‘Very Royal Tea Party’, where parents joined in the garden for socialising and a selection of homemade treats, including cakes, sandwiches and scones.
Across the setting, pre-schoolers also took part in a range of themed activities to mark Her Majesty’s 70-year reign, as well as receiving a special visit from Circles Equine, a local organisation who use horses to help disabled and disadvantaged children and adults, who brought a group of their Shetland ponies for the group to meet as part of celebrations.
Nature Trails Day Nursery Manager, Vicky Stancer explained;
“We had a brilliant time commemorating this special event in history and this provided endless opportunities for the children to showcase their creativity, as well as learn more about the wider world around them. It was lovely to welcome nursery families to the tea party, and we were also thrilled to raise vital funds for Bliss with a special charity raffle.”
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.
