Diwali Celebrations At Kiddi Caru Matford Green
The children and staff at Kiddi Caru’s Matford Green day nursery have been celebrating Diwali.
Diwali, the festival of lights, takes place each year in the autumn. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, it celebrates the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.
As well as making lanterns and designing their own Rangoli patterns, the staff helped the children to make a delicious curry using the nursery’s child friendly oven. They were able to do everything from weighing and measuring ingredients to enjoying the scent of the aromatic spices while they cooked the curry themselves.
Amanda Vardy, Nursery Manager, said: “The children loved hearing all about Diwali and why it is such an important time of year. They very much enjoy getting involved in different calendar events, and we regularly organise activities to help them to learn more about their own and other cultures.”
