Cedar Park Day Nursery superheroes help clean up the planet
Young eco-warriors from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford are on a mission to help prevent global warming by cleaning up the local area around them.
After discussing the topic of litter and recycling as part of their Eco-Schools curriculum, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road decided to take action by dressing up as superheroes and collecting rubbish from the area outside, before finding the appropriate ways to dispose of it.
The initiative, which was inspired by Keep Britain Tidy’s ‘Litter Heroes’ campaign, encourages people to dress up and make a difference within the community by creating a better environment for all, right on their own doorstep.
It is for these continuous efforts that Cedar Park has received not one, but two prestigious Green Flag awards as part of the internationally recognised Eco-Schools scheme, which is given for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices. The nursery is also powered by green electricity from the sun and wind and prides itself on sending nearly zero waste to landfill.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Deputy to Area Manager, Rachael Main explained;
“The children are very environmentally conscious which is lovely to see and we believe this will stand them in brilliant stead for the rest of their lives. They have a wonderful time taking part in these special activities and sharing their knowledge with others at nursery. Not only is this benefiting the world around them, but helps build personal, social and physical skills which are essential to development.”
