It’s Good To Talk At Kiddi Caru Taunton
The children at Kiddi Caru’s Taunton day nursery received an exciting delivery recently – a collection of talking tubes for the nursery’s garden.
Each tube has a phone on the end so the children can use them to talk to their friends. Anyone who’s tube has a phone attached can hear what is being said too, so different children can join in the conversation. The children helped to unpack the talking tubes and work out how everything fitted together then set them up in the garden with the staff.
Once everything was in place the children used the phones to tole play calling their families, working at an airport and even managing a fire control centre. They also played a game where they had to guess which child was talking on the phone.
Julia Gale, Nursery Manager, said: “The children helped to decide where the tubes should go in the garden and couldn’t wait to start using them. The staff put one tube through one of our tunnels, so the children couldn’t see who was on the other end of the phone and had to guess. There are so many ways that the children can use the talking tubes that I’m sure they will be a very popular fixture in the garden!”
