Maples Day Nursery children create spa day experience
Massages, face masks and meditation were just some of the wellness activities that children from Maples Day Nursery in Winchester enjoyed as they created their very own spa day experience, complete with treatments and exercise sessions.
From creating foot spas with an array of scents and coloured petals, to applying cucumber eye masks and taking part in yoga classes to encourage mindfulness, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Hatherley Road were delighted to pamper their friends and discuss the importance of self-care.
Maples Day Nursery Team Leader, Danni Markwick explained;
“The children love re-creating real world experiences in nursery and the spa day was no exception. This provided a brilliant opportunity to use our imaginations and reflect on the steps we can take to improve the wellbeing of ourselves and others, especially in the current circumstances. The yoga was also a great success, and studies have shown this offers many benefits to children’s development, including improving balance, concentration, posture and self-awareness.”
