Following an interest in ice cream shop role play, pre-schoolers from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon were delighted to showcase their entrepreneurial skills and make the most of the last of the September sunshine with a special ice lolly sale.
After creating posters in arts and crafts sessions to advertise the occasion, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park excitedly helped practitioners set up the stand, before making their sales of treats including rocket lollies, choc ices and homemade lemonade, created by talented Nursery Chef, Paul May.
During the exciting experience, children used their language and communication skills to sell the ice lollies and practiced their mathematics by counting the money exchanged by their happy customers, with all proceeds from the sale going to The Trussell Trust charity.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Kayleigh Blaylock explained;
“This was the perfect way to round off the summer and the children were so thrilled to be able to serve some real customers after all their practice. Not only was this opportunity brilliant for building on their interests and key skills, but a great chance to talk more about the important work of food banks and the positive impact our donation will have on local people.”
Windmill Hill have adopted The Trussell Trust for a year-long fundraising and donation drive.
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.
