Edinburgh nursery children enhance reading skills to prepare for school


Preschool children at Bright Horizons Bruntsfield Nursery in Edinburgh have been getting ready for the transition to school by reading a book they will also study in Primary One.

The children went to a local book store and purchased 'The Snail and The Whale' book that they will also read in their first year of school. The initiative was also part of the Bright Horizons Growing Readers enhancement.

“The children liked listening to the story and commented on how the whale helped the snail,” said Nursery Manager Karen Bell. “We will be making a wall display on this transition story and reading the book often for the children to understand the importance of helping each other.”

The Growing Readers enhancement aims to cultivate a love of books and emphasises the importance of reading aloud.
