Nursery to celebrate heroes in half term

Have your say

FOR many working parents, finding affordable and reliable child care during the school holidays can be a real struggle.

But one mum is hoping to fill that void by offering an action-packed play scheme during February half term.

Hero Week will see Dream Catchers nursery open its doors in Farlington to police, firefighters, St John’s ambulance, guide dog trainers and coast guards.

Leah Cardey, manager, said: ‘I wanted to offer not only a safe and fun space to play, I also wanted them to have the chance to meet and be inspired from the heroes we share our city with. The bravest ones don’t wear capes.’

During the week-long scheme, run from 8am until 6pm, children will get time to role play, art and craft and engage in sports. They will get hands on experience of fire safety, first aid, the importance of dogs for the visually impaired and water safety.
