London nursery children interact with pet chickens
Date: 24 Sep 2019
Children at Bright Horizons New Eltham Day Nursery in London recently enjoyed interacting with chickens as part of their forest school activities.
Forest school is an inspirational concept providing learning opportunities through practical activities in an outdoor environment. Children enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers. Forest school embraces an approach of nurturing, supporting and developing the self-esteem of participants. It is an ideal environment in which to develop innovation, problem solving, risk taking, creativity and teamwork.
“Our forest school instructor brought in some of his pet chickens and the children had a great time interacting with them,” said Nursery Manager Michelle Gregory.
