The Cat in the Hat, Paddington Bear and The Gruffalo were just some of the beloved characters that children and colleagues from Windermere Day Nursery in Kettering embodied as they marked World Book Day with a series of themed celebrations.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Haweswater Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to share their favourite stories with friends, whilst practitioners delivered exciting storytelling sessions complete with props to commemorate the annual event, which looks to celebrate the magic of books and encourage a lasting love of reading.
Windermere Day Nursery Manager, Amy McCulloch explained;
“Every year children and colleagues make an amazing effort with their costumes, and this year has been no different. World Book Day provides a brilliant opportunity to showcase our creativity, build literary confidence and celebrate the power of reading.”
World Book Day was created by UNESCO on 23rd April 1995.
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.
