International Women’s Day at Cedar Park Day Nursery
In order to mark International Women’s Day, children from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford have been learning about remarkable ladies through history.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road, pre-schoolers celebrated the annual day by learning about the life of the iconic American aviation pioneer, Amelia Earhart, who was the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic.
As part of the festivities, the children also discussed the important women in their own lives, including mothers, grandmothers, aunties, sisters and friends.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Manager, Emma Kemp explained;
“The children have been fascinated to learn more about influential female figures and how they have helped to shape the world we live in today.”
“We have also linked the learning experience to other topics such as air travel, in reference to the extraordinary flying career of Amelia Earhart herself, and have even created an aeroplane with the children which they can use in activities”, she added.
