Children at Bright Horizons Ladbroke Grove Day Nursery and Preschool in Notting Hill, London have celebrated Australia Day alongside five native butterflies.
Australian fathers of children were also invited to the nursery for the day, bringing items such as an Australian football and books from the country. Staff also baked a an Australian pudding cake while some of the children dressed up in clothing linked to Australia, such as a koala outfit.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Australia Day and learning more about another country’s culture,” said Nursery Manager Sandra Smith. “We are grateful to our Australian dads for the input and look forward to looking after the butterflies in the weeks ahead.”
