Celebrations were well underway at Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford as delighted children and colleagues dressed up for their very own Wildflower Festival.
Having recently earnt themselves a prestigious Green Flag with Distinction from Eco-Schools, the highest accolade in the international scheme, children from the setting on Bridge Farm Road were tasked with making festival outfits, where their creativity shone through with an array of colourful designs made from recycled and natural materials.
Each nursery room created one outfit for a child and one for a staff member, before taking to the stage for a special catwalk performance, as well as fun and games throughout the day.
It is for such activities that Cedar Park have scooped yet another Green Flag, which is awarded for exceptional environmental awareness and conservation practices, with initiatives including growing vegetables and creating habitats for wildlife year-round.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Manager, Rachael Main explained;
“Everyone had such a brilliant time making their outfits for the Wildflower Festival and we were so impressed with the effort that all our rooms went to. This was a fantastic way to celebrate our Green Flag victory and we are so proud to have our efforts recognised once again. Our children love the activities, which provide so many rich learning opportunities.”
