Cedar Park Day Nursery create ‘reverse advent calendar’
Parents and practitioners from Cedar Park Day Nursery in Twyford are embracing the season of goodwill by collecting toys for those less fortunate.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Bridge Farm Road, families are donating brand new toys as part of a reverse advent calendar initiative for the Salvation Army, where each day something is given instead of received.
The Christmas present appeal, named ‘toys for tots’ allows children who may not otherwise receive a present to enjoy a gift at this special time of the year.
Cedar Park Day Nursery Manager, Emma Kemp explained;
“Christmas can be a magical time of the year, but also one of real financial hardship for many, which is why we’ve chosen to make these donations. We’ve had a brilliant response, and this also sets a wonderful example to the children about the importance of both giving and giving back.”
