The Butterfly Patch wants your old stuff
Give us your unwanted items to help our nursery inspire awe and wonder.
The Butterfly Patch – our nursery and preschool based in Shirley, Croydon are asking for donations of everyday and cultural items that would otherwise be thrown away.
This can be anything from old plates, cutlery, clothes all the way to old computer parts.
Got an old pillow you’re going to throw away? Stop by our nursery to donate it!
Please email or call us to arrange a drop-off – 03300 438273, email@example.com
No, we’re not doing this for a charity drive – although that is definitely in our sights for the summer.
We’re doing this because we are joining the Curiosity Approach programme!
This programme encourages little ones to play with everyday objects to inspire awe and wonder in everyday items.
A spokesperson from The Butterfly Patch said: “This approach offers little one’s fantastic sensory opportunities to learn through real life, natural, holistic objects and thingamajigs!
“This enables them to use all of their senses to play and explore to further their development, offering great imaginative play opportunities whilst simultaneously promoting recycling, upcycling and reuse.”
So, something like a plate that would end up as landfill can now be transformed into a wonderful piece of art.
By doing this we are not just helping the environment but also teaching our little ones to see the beauty in the everyday.
