Eco-inspired baking at Seabrook Day Nursery
Children from Seabrook Day Nursery in Luton are showcasing their creativity by making and decorating an array of eco-inspired cakes.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Lewsey Road, children have taken inspiration for their designs from their ‘Eco-Schools’ curriculum, which is operated by ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ and followed at the setting with the aim of promoting behaviour and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the planet. This includes learning about biodiversity, litter, transport and more.
With the guidance of Nursery Chef, Sue Thackham, pre-schoolers have created their very own insect designs in fondant, motivated by the creatures they have seen in the setting’s large garden and ‘bug hotel’ outside.
Seabrook Day Nursery Team Leader, Gemma Bell explained;
“The children have a great deal of care and respect for the environment which is lovely to see, and they have really enjoyed making their cakes in relation to this. We are really excited to explore more ways in which we can learn about these important topics going forward.”
Seabrook Day Nursery holds a prestigious ‘Green Flag’ award as part of the internationally recognised Eco-Schools scheme. The accolade is the highest achievement in the programme and is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation efforts.
