Preschool children at Bright Horizons Teddies Maidstone Nursery were thrilled to receive correspondence in return from The Queen, after sending Her Majesty a birthday card.
In order to celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday, the children wrote and sent a card to Buckingham Palace through the post. The children wrote about The Queen’s family and the palace itself, among other things.
In her official response from Buckingham Palace, The Queen thanked the children for taking the time to write to her.
“The children got a lovely surprise when they received a letter of thanks from The Queen herself,” said Nursery Manager Lisa Beaney. “They were so excited to hear back from the palace, and it’s really boosted their confidence skills when it comes to writing.”
The letter writing exercise was part of Bright Horizons Growing Writers programme, which looks to support children’s magical journey to becoming confident writers.
