Summerfields children embrace gardening programme
Date: 16 Apr 2018
Children at Bright Horizons Summerfields Day Nursery and Preschool in Wilmslow have been making the most of a newly created gardening area, as part of the organisation’s Growing Gardeners enhancement.
The children planted their own grass seeds into cups and stuck a picture of their faces onto the front, which they then called “grass heads.”
“The children really enjoyed taking care of their own plant by planting the seeds, watering them and watching them grow,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Karlie Wilde. “We have talked about what the grass needs to grow and have been using scissors to cut the grass.”
Bright Horizons’ Growing Gardeners enhancement aims to provide children with opportunities to interact with the natural world.
