Cossington Park opened its gardens up to a local nursery, Cherrytrees Montessori, last week. The youngsters, along with their parents and guardians, spent an enjoyable time completing a treasure hunt organised by Cossington Park under the watchful eye of Cherrytrees Manager, Margaret Dobbs.

House Manager, Dave, commented “It was a wonderful time for all involved. Seeing the joy on the children’s faces and hearing the laughter was an absolute delight.”

Manager of Cherrytrees Montessori, Margaret Dobbs, stated “This is an exciting opportunity for us to enhance our outdoor and learning experiences and we are very grateful to the owner, Graham Wason. Within the Cossington Park Estate there are beautiful trees we can sit under with the children to have stories, lots of space for them to run about, even goal posts, picnic sites, nature trails, a wooded area and also a play area.”

Graham Wason, owner-manager of Cossington Park estate, added “Part of the Montessori curriculum is nature study and we are delighted that we have been able to help the children from the village playschool not only with the treasure hunt but we have now dedicated an area in our walled garden where the children can come along to grow vegetables and flowers.”
