Wilmslow kids celebrate Chinese New Year

Date: 08 Feb 2016

Children from Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool in Wilmslow (recently renamed from kidsunlimited) celebrated Chinese New Year by learning about Chinese culture and making a selection of delicious cupcakes.

 

The children were told that is was the Year of the Monkey, and staff explained the story of the Chinese zodiac and how the Monkey finished in 9th place.  The children also learned about Chinese clothing, food and writing.

Nursery Manager, Laura Brown said: “The children loved celebrating Chinese New Year and learning about the Chinese culture.  Activities like this encourage the children to build on their natural interest and curiosity of the wider world around them.”
