Preschool children at Bright Horizons Wishing Willow Day Nursery and Preschool in Banstead have been experiencing the scene of a post office, after taking part in their own role play.

The children wrote postcards and letters to their families and friends, as part of the company’s Growing Writers programme, put them inside an envelope and then placed a stamp on the front.

The letters were then posted in the preschool post box which was created by the children, who will now wait for them to be posted and then delivered.

“This was a fun way to take part in the Growing Writers programme,” said Nursery Manager Rageena Abbas. “Sending postcards and letters to their own recipients for the first time is always an exciting task for the children. They did a great job in creating their own post box as well.”

Bright Horizons’ Growing Writers programme aims to support nursery children to become a creative writer.
