Nursery kids learn how to help in community
As part of a programme of harvest-time events, children at Nurserytime in South Shields and Hebburn, and their families have been collecting donations for the borough’s Hospitality and Hope and Hebburn Helps foodbanks.
Helen Coulson, manager at Nurserytime in Beach Road, South Shields, said: “The children have been learning all about harvest and its significance at this time of year.
"Not only have they been learning harvest songs to sing in celebration but their families have been contributing towards collections which have since been donated to the food banks run by Hospitality and Hope and Hebburn Helps.”
She added: “As part of this, it has also allowed the children to learn the importance of showing kindness and consideration towards those less fortunate than us.
“We would like to say a special thank you to all of our children for their fabulous kindness and tuneful singing voices and to our lovely families for their generous contributions.
"We do hope that such experiences stay with our children for many years to come.”
Nurserytime’s nursery in Hebburn is in Victoria Road West.
