Festivities were well underway at Seabrook Day Nursery in Luton as families and colleagues gathered for a ‘Very Royal Tea Party’ to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
As part of the celebrations, parents were invited to join their children at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Lewsey Road, 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 babies who are born premature or sick.
Pre-schoolers were delighted to showcase their creativity by making their very own crowns and decorative bunting to set the scene, whilst a host of themed activities also took place across the setting, including writing a letter of congratulations to Her Majesty, which was replied to by the Queen’s Lady in Waiting, thanking the children for their well wishes.
Seabrook Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Gemma Bell explained;
“We had a brilliant time commemorating this special event in history and it was incredible for the children to receive a response from Buckingham Palace. We were thrilled to have parents join us for the special tea party and this presented a fantastic opportunity to teach them 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.
