Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool visit their local library

Children at Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool in Wilmslow recently the local Handforth Library, in an initiative part of the organisation’s Growing Readers enhancement.

Upon arrival, the librarian read a couple of stories to the children. They were then able to choose books to take back to the nursery and share with their friends.

“We have decided this will be a monthly trip, choosing 6 different children each time,” said Laura Brown, nursery manager. “One of the highlights of the trip was going on the public bus, as a lot of the children have never been on a bus before. We are looking forward to our next visit.”

The Growing Readers enhancement emphasises the importance of reading aloud and aims to cultivate a love of books within a child.
