South Shields nursery children welcome spring with Easter bonnet parade
Children at Nurserytime South Shields have been celebrating the change in season in their own unique way by taking part in the Easter bonnet parade at their community garden in North Marine Park.
The Nurserytime children designed and created their own bonnets and also marked the Hindu festival of Holi, otherwise known as the 'festival of colour' or the 'festival of Spring'.
Helen Coulson, manager of Nurseytime, said: “The children of Nurserytime have been very excited to see signs of spring appearing as they venture into their local environment for their regular outings. Within their Springtime celebrations, the children had designed and created their own Easter bonnets and decided they would like to show them off.
“What better way to show them off than by directing their own Easter bonnet parade?! The children went to their own community garden space and danced around to some springtime music and songs, wearing their bonnets with pride!”
In March, the Nurserytime group paid tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore as they reflected on the last year of the pandemic.
The Nurserytime Hebburn group have also been strengthening their bonds with the community by taking part in a community gardening project.
Nurserytime South Shields, on beach 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.
