Spreading joy in the community at Cedar Park Day Nursery
Thoughtful children from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford have been showcasing their creativity by making artwork for the residents of Bridge Farm Care Home.
Before the coronavirus outbreak, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road embarked on regular visits to the care home as part of an intergenerational project, where the two groups would enjoy a range of activities together such as reading, drawing and clay modelling.
Whilst missing their absent friends, pre-schoolers decided to write to them and draw pictures to spread joy, before eventually being able to meet once more.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Deputy to Area Manager, Rachael Main explained;
"The children have really been missing their visits to Bridge Farm and wanted to let the residents know we were thinking of them. This project is wonderful for increasing social interaction and encouraging friendships regardless of age, giving the two generations a better understanding of each other and their specific interests. We are hoping to get back to these sessions in the future as they are so valuable to all.”
