It may have been a buyers club they walked into, but Eden Lodge Nursery School students learned about much more than shopping when they visited Cost-U-Less recently.
Responding to an invitation from management of the Welches, St Thomas warehouse club-style store, the 85 students and teachers went to learn about “community helpers”.
They visited the meat department where they met the butcher and got a chance to help grind meat and the bakery department where they saw how bread was made. The tots also stopped in at the receiving area where goods are delivered for sale in the store. Teacher Shelley Leacock told Barbados TODAY the visit fell in line with the school’s theme for this year: Our Heritage, Our Roots.
“They were able to learn about community helpers, as well as some concepts. They even got to show off their artistic skills because they got to decorate their own cupcakes and so on,” she explained.
The Cost-U-Less tour is the latest in trips being taken by the Eden Lodge Nursery School students, as they are given practical lessons about the country in which they live.
