Date: 11 May 2018

Children at Bright Horizons Church Crookham Day Nursery and Preschool in Fleet, Hampshire recently took part in a planting exercise as part of the organisation’s Green Gardeners enhancement.

The children have planted both sunflowers and sweet peas, as part of the enhancement which aims to provide opportunities to interact with the natural world.

“The children have been planting seeds and learning about the importance of watering the flowers and giving them lots of sunlight to help them to grow,” said Deputy Nursery Manager Abi Culver. “The children have also been practising using their mark making skills to write to their names for the labels on their sunflowers.”
