Children from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford have been learning all about road safety, having been inspired by the life story of renowned artist, Frida Kahlo.
After discovering that Kahlo had been in a traffic accident as a young adult, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Bridge Farm Road were intrigued to learn more about the subject and how to keep themselves safe.
From practicing ‘crossing the road’ in the nursery car park to finding out more about the role of a lollypop person, children were immersed in practical activities which helped to reinforce the importance of staying alert when out and about.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Manager, Rachael Main explained;
“We are always keen to follow the children’s interests in nursery and this is a topic which they have particularly enjoyed. This has not only provided an excellent opportunity to refresh our existing knowledge, but practice the Green Cross Code and discuss why we should hold hands and wear reflective clothing where possible.”
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.
