Nursery children aged just three and four years old, were given an exciting opportunity to see our new homes that are under construction at Victoria Grange in Monifieth as part of learning more about their local area at nursery.
Youngsters from the morning session from The Grange Nursery in Monifieth explored our development to see how we build new homes. There was a chance to see some of the various machines that help to move materials on-site, and the children had the opportunity to visit the two show homes and had fun picking their favourite bedroom.
Our team enjoyed having the opportunity to inspire the next generation of future homeowners as Duncan Currie, Site Manager leading the delivery of the construction of the affordable homes at Victoria Grange adds: “We are really proud of our Victoria Grange development as well as the part we play in the local community here, and we really enjoyed meeting the children from The Grange nursery.
“The group have been learning about new homes and how they are built, so this was an ideal opportunity for us to let the children see some construction activity and some of our machines in action at the development from a safe area. We had lots of fun and received some great questions, even although the children are only three and four years of age. We even hope that we have inspired a few of the youngsters to consider the housebuilding industry in the future.“
Whilst the children were at the development, the team took the opportunity to remind the children never to play near a building site and that a nursery school visit was extra-special because normally there are no children allowed near any construction at the development. Never playing near a construction site is a message that Taylor Wimpey is keen to reinforce to the wider local community especially ahead of the October school holiday.
Senior Early Years Practitioner Carolyn Grant, said: “Our children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Taylor Wimpey’s Victoria Grange, and we would like to thank the team for their time in helping the children to explore the development. We’ve been learning all about our local communities, and the team have really helped to bring the children’s learning to life.”
