There were exciting learning opportunities at every turn for children at Westwood Day Nursery in Coventry as they welcomed a series of special visitors to impart their knowledge.
Following an interest in ‘people that help us’, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Westwood Business Park were delighted to welcome Charlotte, a local paramedic who is the sister of an apprentice at the setting, who delivered a masterclass on the important work she does and brought uniform for the children to try on.
Children were also thrilled to welcome Bemma from company ‘African Ark’, who gave the captivated group a better insight into African culture and taught a range of traditional songs and dances, before helping the pre-schoolers to create their own African inspired artwork.
Throughout February, children at Westwood have also showcased their creativity through a range of themed activities, including making biscuits, salt dough and greetings cards for their loved ones on Valentine’s Day and showcasing their culinary skills on Pancake Day.
Westwood Day Nursery Team Leader, Sue Zaparaniuk explained;
“We have had a fantastic few weeks in nursery and are so grateful to our amazing visitors for taking the time to create these rich learning experiences for the children. Both visits were hugely insightful and really captured the interest of our pre-schoolers.”
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.
