Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey have been treated to a set of stories by their parents, a theme which is set to continue.
As part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Readers enhancement, nursery staff have begun a scheme called ‘Secret Storytellers’ which sees parents come into the nursery during intervals and read to the children.
“This scheme helps grow a love of reading and shows the importance of sharing stories,” said Charlotte Martin, acting deputy nursery manager.
The Growing Readers enhancement aims to cultivate a love of books and emphasise the importance of reading aloud.
