There were learning opportunities at every turn for children at Green Park Day Nursery in Reading as they enjoyed a visit from local dentists.
At the award-winning setting on South Oak Way, the over two’s were captivated as they learnt about the importance of good oral hygiene from experts at nearby Olive Tree Dental on Green Park Business Park, who arranged a series of exciting activities including quizzes and a teeth brushing masterclass with chance to practice.
To aid learning, children listened to songs about brushing and were delighted to receive a goody bag at the end of the visit, filled with helpful resources with information and ideas, as well as a toothbrush, toothpaste, stickers and treats.
In the New Year, Green Park families will also have the opportunity to visit Olive Tree Dental for further support and advice in engaging children in the subject.
Green Park Day Nursery Team Leader, Grace Critcher explained;
“The children had a brilliant time with the dentists and we are so grateful to them for taking time out of their busy schedules to impart their wisdom on this important topic. We aim to make these experiences fun and memorable for the children to ensure they have a lasting impact and help them to make healthy choices for the future.”
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.
