Dig this! Woodborough Pre-School children can’t wait to get stuck in at new allotment space

Woodborough Pre-School children have their very own allotment


Woodborough Pre-School now has its own village-based pre-school allotment and the children are SUPER excited.

The pre-school, that caters for two, three and four-year-old children, has so many exciting ideas about what they are going to do with their new allotment – and the possibilities are endless!

Children will now be able to plant and nurture their own fruits and vegetables, which they will eventually be able to eat.

They will also plant and nurture flowers and make homes for local wildlife.

Woodborough Pre-School Manager, Jade Topliss, told Gedling Eye that the children were keen to get to work.

She said: “We’ve already planned which delicious fruits and vegetables we are going to grow and children are particularly excited about the possibility of spotting frogs in the pond! Wellies at the ready, we’re excited for Spring!’

Preparation has now begun and planting will start on the allotment during February and March.

The pre-school would love people to help with the project and is urging people to get in touch.

They are also looking for donations of garden tools and / or seeds etc. to help the children gain as many exciting opportunities and experiences as possible.
