Children at Bright Horizons Footsteps Day Nursery and Preschool in Farnborough, Hampshire have taken part in their nativity play and hosted the annual fete.
The traditional play saw all of the children have a role, while the parents also chipped in to help make the costumes. The fete followed and featured a Christmas barbecue as well as a visit from Father Christmas. All of the activities raised more than £500 for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
“All the children done so well learning all the songs and performing them in front of all the families,” said Nursery Manager Tara Gatford. “The parents made the most amazing costumes and were a great help on the day.”
Set up in 2005, the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children’s sole purpose is to help children and families in crisis. They achieve this by working with local community groups, shelters and with Bright Horizons clients to create Bright Spaces®, which are indoor and outdoor play spaces located in homeless shelters, domestic violence refuges and refugee centres.
The spaces are created in order to provide children and families in need with a special place to play, have fun and most of all feel safe.
