West Cambridge Day Nursery mark World Environment Day
Children and colleagues from West Cambridge Day Nursery in Cambridge were delighted to celebrate World Environment Day with a series of themed activities, following the news that the setting had gone ‘Climate Positive’ after saving more greenhouse gas emissions than it generates.
From potting plants and recycling water to creating masterpieces using natural resources from the garden, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Charles Babbage Road were immersed in exciting learning experiences.
At the setting, children take part in sustainable activities all year round, from planting and growing vegetables to creating habitats for wildlife, leading them to earn a prestigious ‘Green Flag’, the highest accolade in the internationally-recognised Eco-Schools programme, which is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices.
West Cambridge Day Nursery Manager, Lesa Clare explained;
“We are committed to giving our children the best possible start in life and that includes creating a greener future. We had a brilliant time celebrating World Environment Day and reminding ourselves of the small steps we can take every day to help our planet and preserve it for future generations to come.”
World Environment Day is celebrated annually on 5 June and is the United Nations' principal vehicle for encouraging awareness and action for the protection of the environment.
