We welcomed our local mounted police officers and their horses, Q and Minty into our nursery. Children and staff were so excited to get up close to these powerful, gentle horses who help to keep our community safe. The police officers explained how to stroke them. Some children were brave enough to feed the horses with apples and carrots (some of which came from our own allotment!) Experiences like this serve to help develop children's understanding of the wider community we live in and all the people who serve it. We appreciate the time they gave up to include us on their beat this week.
