‘Decking the halls’ at Cedar Park Day Nursery
Children at Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford have been ‘decking the halls’ by making their very own handmade Christmas tree decorations, using recycled materials.
Pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Bridge Farm Road, which holds the prestigious ‘Green Flag’ award for environmental awareness and conservation, have been showcasing their creativity before taking the decorations home for Christmas.
Cedar Park Nursery Manager, Emma Kemp said;
“The children have made some wonderfully artistic designs using the resources available to them. We take pride in being environmentally considerate and it’s amazing to see their talents via these festive ornaments.”
Children have also been learning the story of advent with their very own pastor and nursery practitioner, Henry Mensah-Brown.
“The children have loved learning more about the meaning of Christmas with Henry, and have had a special advent calendar and candle which is used to support the teaching behind the story. All of these activities help to develop the children’s expression, physical development and general understanding of the world.”
Cedar Park is powered by green electricity from the sun and wind, and has nearly ‘zero’ waste to landfill.
