A summer of fun

Watching water being bottled, seeing piglets suckle and watching fish follow their human feeder were just some of the fun activities 21 children experienced this summer.

Miss Nadine’s Pre-School held summer camp from 1-12 August for children three to six years old.

The children participated in daily field trips to places such as the Airport Post Office, where they were able to learn how the mail is processed, Savannah Springs to see how water is bottled and to Nautilus Undersea Adventure.

The children saw many fish and were delighted to see how the fish followed the captain throughout the water as he fed them, states a press release.

At Botanic Park they had a picnic and during a visit to Mr. Willy’s Pig Farm, the children had fun watching piglets and very big pigs.

At the Airport Fire Station the children rode on fire trucks and even had to disembark one of the fire trucks as the firemen were called out to an emergency during the tour.

The children visited the Butterfly farm and saw many varieties of butterflies and learned about the four stages in the life of the butterfly.

Another highlight was the visit to the Pines where the children sang to the seniors and performed the song they had learned titled ‘Old and Young Can Be Good Friends.’

They also presented the seniors with a paper dove they had coloured and had written on it ‘this gift of love I give to you, hugs and kisses.’

Attached to the dove was a chocolate kiss. This brought a smile to the residents’ faces and what followed were many real hugs and kisses.

The children also got to interact with a Royal Cayman Islands Police dog and heard Ms Virginia Foster from the library read them stories.

They also learned about recycling at the Department of Environmental Health.

The trips were provided by Tropicana Tours and the RCIP.

Each day the children participated in activities based on the event they participated in.
