Delving into Diwali at Crescent Day Nursery
There were festivities all round at Crescent Day Nursery in Edgbaston as delighted children joined millions of people worldwide in celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali.
At the day nursery on Calthorpe Road, Pre-Schoolers took part in an array of exciting activities to mark the ‘Festival of Lights’, including making beautiful Rangoli patterns using rice, creating salt dough Diva lamps, designing their very own henna and reading the story of ‘Deepak’s Diwali’ to gain a better understanding of the meaning behind the celebration.
Crescent Day Nursery Team Leader, Amie Draper explained;
“The children have had a wonderful time joining in with the Diwali festivities and this has offered countless opportunities for us to showcase our creativity. We love to mark a range of cultural and religious events throughout the year to give the children a broad understanding of the world around them and to celebrate the diversity within our local community.”
