Maidstone children celebrate Remembrance Day

Date: 17 Nov 2016

Children at Bright Horizons Maidstone Turkey Mill Day Nursery and Preschool celebrated Remembrance Day this year by creating their very own poppies.

As well as making their poppies, the children were all involved in a discussion around the meaning of Remembrance Day and the importance of it. A two-minute silence was also held in the preschool room, during which some of the toddlers joined in.

“We were delighted with the children’s ability in making their own poppies and they each enjoyed the responsibility of doing so,” said Nursery Manager Jenna Spring Gay. “They fully understand the importance of Remembrance Day and were keen to pay their respects to those who served in the war.”
