Children celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday

Date: 26 Apr 2016

The youngsters at Bright Horizons Tytherington Day Nursery and Preschool (recently renamed from kidsunlimited) in Macclesfield joined the Queen in her birthday celebrations by hosting a tea party.

The children had a great time and were busy playing fun games, making their own bunting and baking biscuits. To finish off the day the children had a delicious picnic in the large nursery garden and enjoyed a special ice cream cone treat afterwards.

During the day, nursery practitioners presented the children a selection of photos of the Queen during her reign. Amelia, age 3 commented on the Queen’s grey hair "When I grow up I will colour my hair purple."

Nursery Manager, Lorraine Roberts, said: "The children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday, and learning about the Royal Family.  It’s important for children to learn about current affairs and the world around them."
