The Gruffalo arrives in MK for 1st Birthday

The Gruffalo at Childcare HubThis weekend, The Childcare Hub in Milton Keynes, the home of nature-based play, run by Kids Play Nurseries, celebrated it’s 1st Birthday and The Gruffalo was there to host the party!

Over 100 Pre-Schoolers were on the Guest List and the event was packed full of giant sized Gruffalo fun. After meeting The Gruffalo, the children joined in with special Forest school activities, listened to Gruffalo stories, and had their faces painted with a finale being a themed birthday cake and special guest, The Gruffalo.

Sharon Elliott, Childcare Director said, “The Childcare Hub has been a fantastic venue over the last year, giving children a great opportunity to learn more about our natural world. The Gruffalo seemed the perfect guest to host our children’s party”.

The Childcare Hub is the home of nature-based play and opened to the public in July 2017. The newest venue for Kids Play Childcare, this site really is the beacon for their ethos of nature-based play. The Childcare Hub plays host to Forest School sessions for all MK nurseries, has natural resources for all ages of learning and a rooftop garden!  At the event, the children had the opportunity to wear their best Gruffalo fancy dress costumes.

 


The Childcare Hub incorporates a Nursery, Pre-School, After School Club and during School Holidays, Camp MK Activity Day Camps.
