Whole Nursery Harvest Festival
Harvest Festival is a time where Christians thank God for all the good things He gives them. It’s important for your child to learn about various religious beliefs so they understand and accept them. Harvest Festival also teaches children the value of sharing and giving to those who are not so fortunate.
We will have a box within nursery for any donated items such as tinned soups, dried pasta and fruit make good contributions as they are easier for foodbanks to store and give away over time.
