Sale children make their own post box

Date: 14 Dec 2016

Babies at Bright Horizons Sale Day Nursery and Preschool have made their own post box fox the baby room.

Staff arranged the exercise to help improve the children’s fine manipulative skills, with the box having various holes to post things through. The babies were able to spend long periods attempting to post objects through the holes, including plastic balls.

“The babies had fun trying to move each of the objects through the holes and figuring out which ones would fit,” said Jenny McDougall, nursery manager. “The exercise was also beneficial in developing their hand-eye coordination.”
