Young storytellers from Windmill Hill Day Nursery in Swindon were delighted to receive the gift of a puppet theatre, thanks to the kind-hearted family of a child leaving to go to school.
The generous present is now being used by pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Windmill Hill Business Park to put on their very own puppet shows and re-enact their favourite stories for captivated audiences using a variety of props.
The new puppet theatre has also inspired children to put pen to paper and create their own imaginative stories to role play, all whilst enhancing cognitive and social development, as well as building confidence and language and communication skills ready for school.
Windmill Hill Day Nursery Manager, Lora Worthington explained;
“We were so flattered to receive such an amazing gift for the nursery from one of our school leavers and the children have had the best time letting their imaginations run wild using the puppet theatre. We always strive to create exciting and stimulating learning environments and this present has really helped take creativity to the next level whilst nurturing key skills.”
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.
