Westwood Day Nursery mark World Environment Day
Children and colleagues from Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry 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 making sea animals using recycled materials and discussing plastic pollution in oceans to bedding plants and creating nature masterpieces, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Business Park, Westwood Way, were immersed in exciting learning experiences as part of the festivities.
At the setting, children take part in sustainable activities all year round, from crafting with natural and recycled materials to creating habitats for wildlife, leading them to earn not one, but two prestigious ‘Green Flag’ awards, the highest accolade in the internationally-recognised Eco-Schools programme, which are presented for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices.
Westwood Day Nursery Manager, Carly Ward explained;
“We are committed to giving our children the best possible start in life and that includes creating a greener future. The World Environment Day activities were hugely popular and each room also enjoyed litter picking in their gardens to promote ownership, responsibility and being proud of our the area around us.”
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.
