Community Relationships

The children of Merrydays Montessori Nursery have always liked visiting the pond in the grounds of Dell Court, Henley in Arden. Over the last few months relationships between the residents and the children have developed and the staff of the nursery wanted to be able to give something back to the community. Firstly, in December the children sang Christmas songs with requests from the residents and then shared afternoon tea. When the weather was more favourable, they were invited to play croquet. Last Thursday, they took along their puzzles and song spoons and shared them. A good time was had by all, the residents enjoyed the interaction with the children giving them something different to  focus on and the children developed their communication skills.
We are looking to develop this as a more regular programme.
