There was excitement at Woodberry Day Nursery in Winchmore Hill as delighted pre-schoolers made a special overseas delivery on ‘Send a Card to a Friend Day’.
After bidding farewell to one of their classmates who moved to France months previously, children from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Church Hill were thrilled to write an array of letters and messages with the help of their practitioners and phonics cards, which have now been posted to him in Europe, complete with their questions and picture drawings.
As part of the learning experience, children showcased their creativity by making their very own post box using recycled materials and decorative red paint, which they used to post their letters, before delivering them to the nearby train station post box the next day.
Woodberry Day Nursery Quality Manager, Nikol Moravova explained;
“Send a Card to a Friend Day presented the perfect opportunity to write to our friend in France and update him on everything we’ve been doing lately. This also allowed us to practice school readiness skills such as holding a pen and writing names. The children are now hoping to receive a reply so they can hear all about the adventures abroad.”
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.
