Nursery manager Hannah Oxley organised the event at Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery to encourage positive conversations regarding people who help us and what the NHS is.

The children enjoyed a rainbow menu which included colourful vegetable rice and blueberries, peach and strawberries for morning fruit snack, and both staff and children all dressed up in rainbow-themed outfits.

They also made rainbow artwork, used doctors and nurses role play outfits, and took part in different colour-related activities.

Owner Amanda Griffiths said: “As the owner I am so proud of all my staff, we have made no redundancies over lockdown and have welcomed back our community...

“The nursery is an extremely happy place at a tricky time.

“Staff have said that they have loved Rainbow Day as it allowed such positive learning.”
