A guided yoga session and mindfulness exercises were just some of the wellbeing inspired activities that children from Lime Grove Day Nursery in Hemel Hempstead enjoyed as they marked Mental Health Awareness Week at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Park Road, dedicated colleagues were surprised with an array of pamper gifts including shower gels and face masks from their grateful managers, as well as sweet treats and bunches of flowers to take home, whilst staff also decorated communal areas with positive affirmations and quotes to inspire each other.
Lime Grove Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Yasmin Diver explained;
“Mental Health Awareness Week provides a brilliant opportunity to remind ourselves of the small steps we can take to improve the wellbeing of ourselves and those around us. The children had a fantastic time taking part in the activities and its always lovely to show our colleagues how much they mean to us and open up the dialogue on this important topic.”
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.
