Grantham nursery transforms into 'cinema' for youngsters during lockdown
A Grantham nursery transformed into a cinema last week to provide some light entertainment during lockdown.
Youngsters at Children 1st Nursery, in Trent Road, Grantham, tucked into a variety of traditional movie refreshments including popcorn, crisps and drinks at the mock cinema, which had been set up in the pre-school room.
After collecting their home-made tickets from the ‘kiosk’, the staff members and children all settled down on cushions and beanbags to watch ‘The Land Before Time’ film to coincide with their current dinosaur topic.
Senior nursery nurse Sarah Ward came up with the idea.
She said: “We thought it would be nice for the children to have a fun experience at the cinema as they are currently unable to go due to the lockdown. We wanted to give them a real-life experience of being at the cinema.
“They had such a good time watching the film and enjoying it with their friends.”
The nursery is currently open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children amid the coronavirus pandemic.
