There were smiles all round at Lavenders Day Nursery in Bedford as young reading enthusiasts received an exciting visit from the Bedford Borough Mobile Library.
With the library van visiting the local area twice a month, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bushmead Avenue were delighted to step onboard and browse the wide selection of books, before choosing a variety of titles to borrow for two weeks, with favourites including ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘What the Ladybird Heard’.
As part of the learning experience, children enjoyed a story time session on the bus with Nursery Practitioner, Attilia, before heading back inside the setting to discuss the value of libraries within communities, including why mobile ones are important for so many people.
Lavenders Day Nursery Quality Manager, Oli Baucutt explained;
“Our children have a real interest in books so this was a fantastic opportunity for them, and reminded us of the brilliant service we have access to in our area. The group loved selecting their own stories and this is a great way of teaching personal responsibly, as well as nurturing a passion for reading which we can continue to support in nursery.”
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.
