Cedars Day Nursery celebrate World Environment Day
Children and colleagues from Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard were delighted to celebrate World Environment Day with a series of themed activities, following the news that the setting had gone ‘Climate Positive’ after saving more greenhouse gas emissions than it generates.
From creating their very own recycling centre to flower arranging and exploring plastic pollution with sea animals, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Mentmore Road were immersed in exciting learning experiences.
At the setting, children take part in sustainable activities all year round, from crafting with natural and recycled materials to creating habitats for wildlife, leading them to earn a prestigious ‘Green Flag’, the highest accolade in the internationally-recognised Eco-Schools programme, which is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices.
Cedars Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Laura Farrell explained;
“We are committed to giving our children the best possible start in life and that includes creating a greener future. We had a brilliant time celebrating World Environment Day and took part in so many exciting activities which taught important messages on recycling, pollution, electricity, plants, endangered animals and more.”
World Environment Day is celebrated annually on 5 June and is the United Nations' principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of the environment.
