Children from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans sent Easter greetings cards to their friends who are being forced to stay at home because of the coronavirus pandemic.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on York Road, pre-schoolers were supported by practitioners as they wrote the messages to their friends, before putting them safely in the post box.
The children also created cards for the residents of Strathmore Lodge Care Home, who they regularly visit, to send their well wishes.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Team Leader, Jodie Smart said everyone enjoyed the activity
She added: “Currently we only have the children of key workers in nursery, which has been a huge change for everyone. The pre-schoolers were thrilled to be able to create cards to stay in contact with their friends, and we hope to receive some replies soon. On our walk to the postbox we were stopped by some neighbours who expressed what a good job we were doing, which was so lovely to hear in these challenging times.”
