New arrivals at Meadow View Day Nursery
Children from Meadow View Day Nursery in Newport Pagnell are learning all about life cycles with the help of some special new springtime arrivals.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Westbury Lane, ducklings are being cared for by the delighted children who have watched them hatch from their eggs.
As well as being given key responsibilities to ensure the ducklings are well looked after, the pre-schoolers have been able to watch them learn to swim for the first time.
Meadow View Day Nursery Manager, Elkie Taylor explained;
“The arrival of the ducklings has been an extremely positive and insightful experience which has given the children a much greater understanding of life cycles. Seeing the care and respect everyone has for them is lovely and teaches the responsibility in caring for other living creatures.”
