Following an interest in ‘people that help us’, children from Lime Grove Day Nursery in Hemel Hempstead were delighted to welcome a police officer to the setting to learn more.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Park Road, pre-schoolers were captivated as they listened to the officer speak about his important role in keeping people safe within the community, before giving the group a guided tour of the specialist police car and sirens.
As part of the learning opportunity, the Hertfordshire constable showed children the equipment he used as part of his role, which inspired role play activities back indoors, as well as answering burning questions from the group and sharing top tips for staying safe.
Lime Grove Day Nursery Team Leader, Robyn Shuck explained;
“This was a hugely insightful experience for the children and we are extremely grateful to the police officer for giving up his time to come and visit. This provided a brilliant opportunity for the pre-schoolers to find out more about the positive impact the emergency services have in our community, whilst focusing on language development and safety messages.”
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.
