kidsunlimited celebrate Chinese New Year in style

Article By: kidsunlimited

kidsunlimited nurseries up and down the country celebrated Chinese New Year in style, with Chinese inspired food, drawings, games and stories.

kidsunlimited believe it’s essential that children within their nurseries learn about different cultures and traditions, and with Chinese New Year being the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar it seemed only right to celebrate. A Chinese specific menu was created for the day with Chinese soup, Asian pears, pak choi and noodles all on the menu. The children were also told the story of The Great Race: the story of Chinese Zodiac Animals and encouraged to draw pictures of this year’s animal, the snake.

In addition to celebrating Chinese New Year and other festivities, kidsunlimited have introduced a Language and Culture programme which aims to support children’s overall learning and development. The specially designed programme will include exciting sessions to help children from all ages to learn an additional language such as Spanish, Polish, French or Mandarin Chinese.

Caroline Wright, kidsunlimited’s Head of Early Years said, “The children loved celebrating Chinese New Year, learning about Chinese traditions and tasting new foods which we’re made in-house by our Chefs. This all bodes well for our new ku:language and culture programme which aims to build on this natural interest and curiosity to encourage greater understanding of the wider world.”
