Little ones attending the Geoffrey Morris Day Nursery in Ellerton, St. George can expect a well-rounded education there, said Supervisor, Heather Fitt.
They participate in devotions, water play, nature play, sand play, table talk, reading, story telling, learning the Lord’s pray and this week, during the open week, the entire island will have an opportunity to view some of the work resulting from their daily activities.
Every three months the children depict work according to a particular theme, this time the theme coincides with the national theme for child month: Healthy Families A Brighter Future For Our Children.
Fitt told Barbados TODAY because of this, from the end of April to the beginning of May as they prepared for this week of activities they decided to focus their work on healthy families. So the work depicted for the week included things that would incorporate a healthy life: such as, families praying together, reading to one another and interacting to develop lasting relationships.
The art from the one and one-and-a-half year-olds was of scribble, foot paint, hand paint and potato print. The older children, two to four year olds made a family tree, drew various parts of the body, scenes of families at the beach, and with the help of aunties, also sketched a healthy food chart along with an unhealthy one.
“The children are enjoying themselves. I encourage parents and relatives to visit and view the work that was done and let persons see that in this day care we give them a head start for when they go on to primary,” said Fitt. (KC)
