Children are happier, healthier and more creative when they are connected to nature. We always aim to inspire people about Norfolk’s wildlife, but a new project which started this spring hopes to go a little bit further.
‘A Sure Start with Nature’ introduces children to the natural world at the very start of their lives. In partnership with Sure Start Children’s Centres in Great Yarmouth, Thetford and Corpusty, we will run indoor and outdoor nature-focused activities such as monthly interactive sessions and sensory play.
We are aware of the current consultation given the recent announcement about plans to close 46 out of 53 Sure Start centres in Norfolk and the intention for changes to come into effect from October 2019. We will still be able to work with these and additional communities in settings alongside children’s centres, such as schools and village halls.
