Preschool children become gardeners at Crewe

Date: 15 Aug 2016

Preschool children at Bright Horizons Crewe Day Nursery and Preschool have been interacting with and learning about the natural world, as part of the organisation’s Green Gardeners programme.

The children felt the soil, spoke about what plants need to grow and analysed the different-coloured plants in the nursery garden. They have studied what is required for plants to survive and will continue to look after them in the weeks ahead.

“The children took turns to explore the plants and are looking forward to nurturing them moving forward,” said Nursery Manager Claire Chadwick. “The Green Gardeners programme aims to encourage their natural interests.”
