There was delight for pre-schoolers at Rowan Tree Day Nursery in Welwyn Garden City as they were surprised with a fun-filled day of design to celebrate International Lego Day.
Arriving to special creation stations set-up throughout their classroom, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Guessens Road started with a brainstorm session, where they discussed their exciting build ideas with practitioners and put pen to paper by drawing up blueprints, before letting imaginations run wild with their inventions.
From crocodiles and telescopes to dragons and flying machines, pre-schoolers showcased their creativity with a series of individual designs, as well as working together as a team to create bigger and more intricate builds, including a huge ten pin bowling alley structure.
Rowan Tree Day Nursery Manager, Claire Ovenden explained;
“Our children had a fantastic time celebrating International Lego Day and were so engaged and inspired when channelling their inner architects. Lego not only sparks creativity, but also encourages problem-solving, teamworking and fine motor skills. It’s incredible to see how these bricks can empower our children to think outside the box and bring their ideas to life.”
International Lego Day is celebrated on 28th January.
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.
