Harvest festival at ABC Nursery Telford
17th October 2013
... Comments

The children from ABC Day Nursery at Hoo Farm, Preston On The Weald Moors enjoyed singing songs for their parents at the outdoor performance on Thursday 3rd October 2013.


They also collected a large amount of tinned and other non-perishable food, which was then collected by the Reverend Edward Ward from the nearby St Lawrence Church.


The church will distribute the food among the older members of the community to help them stock up for the winter ahead.


Penny Hustwick, director of ABC nurseries, said the children had a fantastic time rehearsing for their performance and had been incredibly excited to perform for their parents.


“A few years ago we always used to have a harvest festival but then stopped for a long time. This year we have brought it back and hope it will become a permanent fixture in the ABC at Hoo calendar once again,” she said.


“The children had a great time practicing for their singing performance and were absolutely brilliant on the day. All the mums and dads had a great time too.


“We collected a really good amount of food for the church to give to the older people in the community and the children were really happy to know they were helping others.”


ABC at Hoo opened in August this year, having moved from the nursery’s original site in Wrockwardine, where it first opened more than 20 years ago.


It now has four nursery sites in total, providing childcare and early years education for children aged from three months to five years, plus after school clubs for children up to the age of 11 .


In addition to Hoo Farm, others nursery sites are in Lightmoor, Hadley and Hollinswood. All the nurseries have an ‘Outstanding’ rating with Ofsted, the highest possible.


“Since moving from Wrockwardine to the new premises, we have already filled two thirds of the places at Hoo Farm,” added Mrs Hustwick.


“It is a fantastic new site and a really great environment for the children, with them able to do a much wider variety of activities than they could before.”


Anyone looking for a nursery for their child is welcome to attend Hoo Farm and have a look around.


“We are very proud of the quality of childcare we provide and believe that the good feeling parents get when visiting a prospective nursery is hugely important when making their choice,” said Mrs Hustwick.
