Englefield Green Day Nursery and Preschool observe eggs hatching

Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey were recently excited to watch chicks hatch from their eggs on March 29th.

The children were tasked with naming the chicks and then staff moved to teach them more about the life cycle of birds. The latter was an imitative part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Scientists enhancement.

“The children that were in that day were very lucky that they got to see the chicks hatch,” said Charlotte Martin, acting deputy nursery manager. “They were very excited to do so and had great fun when holding them afterwards.”

The Growing Scientists enhancement aims to help children identify scientific activities that occur in their everyday lives.
