Englefield Volcano

Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey have been exploring a volcano-style experiment, in an activity part of the organisation’s Growing Scientists enhancement.

A parent had made a play volcano as part of their child’s learning development at home and brought it in for the preschool children to experiment with.

“We enjoyed predicting what we though was going to happen before pouring the lava in and watching it erupt,” said Charlotte Martin, preschool room leader.  

Bright Horizons’ Growing Scientists enhancement aims to help children identify scientific activities which occur in their everyday lives.
