Harpenden nursery children observe caterpillars

Children at Bright Horizons Harpenden Luton Road Day Nursery and Preschool have been looking closely at caterpillars having been inspired to do so after reading a famous story.

The children have been reading the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” as part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Readers programme. The programme aims to cultivate a love of books and emphasise the importance of reading aloud.

This particular story also sparked an interest in caterpillars themselves, so staff brought some into the nursery for the children to observe.

“The children will be waiting will be waiting patiently for the caterpillars to turn into butterflies,” said Nursery Manager Lucy Dunton.
