Farndon Nursery enjoys life in the fast lane

Children at Dandelions Day Nursery in Farndon, Cheshire, are enjoying life in the fast lane thanks to the contribution of seven brand new outdoor didi-cars from our North West team.

The toys, which have proved popular with the children, promote team work and role playing, as well as help children to practice parking and filling up at the petrol pump and the importance of stop and go.

Steve from Dandelions Day Nursery explains: “The nursery has the most amazing outdoor space for the children to play in and explore. This currently includes a sand and water play zone and a baby sensory garden and we constantly strive to improve our provision.

“These toys will add a new dimension to our outdoor facilities as we develop a garage and workshop area to spark the children’s imaginations and build on real life experiences in their play. The cars will become part of this new area.”

Opened in August 2015, Dandelions Day Nursery currently has 70 children regularly attending and another 38 who join the Holiday Club.

Stuart Craig, Sales Manager for Taylor Wimpey North West, adds: “We understand that the facilities which we build are hugely important to new and existing residents within the local community, which is why we’re only too happy to support such creative and worthwhile initiatives.

“Steve and the team do a fantastic job teaching and interacting with all the children at Dandelions Day Nursery and we’re sure the addition of the new cars will go down a treat.

“With many family homes currently available at our nearby Wellington Green development in Farndon, we hope to see many of our new residents stop by Dandelions and see what great work the nursery does.”

The ride on toys will also help with the children’s physical development and encourage sharing and turn taking as they ride, clean, mend and park the toys.

Steve adds: “On behalf of everyone at Dandelions Day Nursery, we’d like to extend our thanks to the Taylor Wimpey team for their generous donation. As a newly established nursery a contribution like this enables us to buy high quality toys that will last.”

Wellington Green currently has a range of three and four-bedroom homes available.
