Pre-school children at the Nurserytime Hebburn setting are reaching out to the community after months spent in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of plans to link up with the community following the pandemic, children were able to work with Friends of Hebburn Cemetery to take part in some socially distanced gardening, planting spring flowers as the season changes.

Nurserytime is looking to bounce back from months spent in lockdown by putting an emphasis on togetherness and giving children exciting opportunities to interact with the local community.

Elena Wood, Manager of the Nurserytime Hebburn setting, said: “It’s very important to have that sense of community, especially at the minute. We always try to do as much within the community as possible but it’s been difficult with the lockdown and the pandemic.

“The children loved working with Friends of Hebburn Cemetery and took so much from the opportunity. The children were kindly gifted their own plant that they planted themselves, an Easter egg and they’re own mini-hand gel.”

Nurserytime Hebburn, in Victoria Road, provides early years education and childcare for preschool children, aiming to support kids to learn and develop at their own speed with unique and exciting opportunities and open ended activities.
