Theatre Visit for Highbury Lodge Day Nursery children
Children from Highbury Lodge Day Nursery in Hitchin were delighted to pay a visit to their local theatre to watch a pantomime performance of Beauty and the Beast.
Pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Highbury Road travelled by train to reach the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage, where they enjoyed the ‘tale as old as time’ of enchanting village girl Belle, who falls in love with a Beast and as a result, reverses the ancient curse he has been living under.
Highbury Lodge Team Leader, Lynsey Biddle explained;
“We had a wonderful time at the theatre and this also offers a range of benefits to the children, including encouraging communication, extending vocabulary, inspiring creativity and lengthening attention span, to name just a few.”
