Kiddi Caru Basingstoke Enjoy Caterpillar Capers
The children at Kiddi Caru’s Basingstoke day nursery have been learning all about caterpillars and butterflies.
Inspired by their love of the Hungry Caterpillar the children have spent the past few weeks nurturing caterpillars, feeding them and watching them grow, ultimately turning into butterflies. The final step of the cycle saw the children releasing the butterflies into the wild.
Helen Kinch, Nursery Manager, said: “The Hungry Caterpillar is one of the children’s favourite stories so we thought we would create it for real for them. Watching the lifecycle of the butterfly has proved fascinating for the children and I think that when it came to releasing them, some of our children were a little sad to see them go.”
