Rosa Parks inspires Cedar Park Day Nursery children
Children from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford are taking a step back through history to learn of some of the inspiring figures who have helped shape society today.
After hearing the story of civil rights activist Rosa Parks and her involvement in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road were inspired to make their very own bus using recycled materials, complete with a ‘no’ number plate and on-board passengers.
Children created the passengers and placed them across the bus without segregation to honour the actions of Rosa in 1955. Pre-schoolers also drew portraits of the activist and discussed the importance of treating everybody equally.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Deputy to Area Manager, Rachael Main explained;
“The children have been captivated by the story of Rosa Parks and it’s been lovely to see them engage in conversations about why her beliefs were so important. We will next be looking at Martin Luther King Jr, and the impact he’s had across the world.”
