Young Friends Nursery shared Early Years & Childcare in Brighton & Hove's post.
We believe in the importance of instilling a sense of community in our children and using our local area as extended learning opportunities. To this end, we regularly take children on trips outside the nursery as well as invite people in.
Visits – Visits in to the nursery are organized by our trip coordinator. Visits have included children and teachers from a deaf school, local mosaic artist Sue Penrose who led a session with the children, and the RNLI boat rescue service who brought in dressing up materials and carried out an activity identifying beach safety hazards. Visits into the nursery by our families is also welcome as we have a great many parents who, not only love the opportunity to see what their children get up to at nursery, but are also happy to contribute to our themed weeks and talk about their professions or share their cultures and festivals.
