Following an interest in ‘people that help us’, children from Nene Valley Day Nursery in Northampton were delighted to welcome local firefighters to the setting for a special visit.
At the award-winning setting on Northampton General Hospital Complex, firefighters spoke to captivated pre-schoolers about the equipment used to extinguish flames, before showing them the protective clothing worn and giving a guided tour of the fire engine and its sirens.
As part of the learning experience, children were able to ask the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service heroes any questions to further their knowledge on the topic.
Nene Valley Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Hayley Baverstock explained;
“We are so grateful to the firefighters for taking the time to come and visit. The children were overwhelmed with excitement on their arrival and listened intently to everything they had to say. This was a lovely learning opportunity and has given the group a much greater understanding of the important work they do within our community.”
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.
