Family at the Heart of Learning
We know from research that there are many factors which have a positive impact on children and their learning. One factor is family engagement and this is why we work alongside families with our children wherever possible. We were lucky enough to have our new bike mechanic Diego come to visit the nursery. Diego was amazed at how engaged, eloquent and independent our children were. He normally works with older children and adults and this was a first for him. Children, families and staff explored the parts of the bicycles, dismantling, exploring, handling and naming them. Inner tubes were changed, tyres removed, air pumped and gears and pedals altered. Everyone (Diego included) learned so much and two punctures and a flat tyre were mended as a result. As we have many proficient two wheeler cyclists in the nursery this meant they could cycle home last night. Our bike rack is already heaving under the weight of the scooters and bikes used to commute to school; we may need another one soon.
