Following an interest in animals and their life cycles, children from Devonshire Day Nursery in Chiswick were delighted to make a visit to their local pet shop, Chiswick Pets.
From rabbits and guinea pigs to bearded dragons, fish and stick insects, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bennett Street were able to observe a range of creatures up close, as well as learning about their daily care routines from the experts.
During the trip, children were thrilled to meet the resident pet shop cat and watch as dogs had their hair cut, before purchasing hay in order to create their very own replica birds nest.
Devonshire Day Nursery Manager, Emmy Avery explained;
“The pet shop visit was hugely exciting for everyone involved and a brilliant extension of our learning on the topic. This was also a fantastic addition to our work on cultural capital and providing the children with rich experiences to further their understanding of the world around them. The group couldn’t wait to tell their families all about the trip.”
We prioritise the importance of outdoor play at Cedars Day Nursery in Leighton Buzzard. All children at our Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery have access to our large, natural garden area on a daily basis as we recognise the impact that being outdoors has on a child’s social, emotional and physical development. The children enjoy planting vegetables and tasting their produce, served by our dedicated Nursery Chef.
