Pre-school’s val­ues cap­tured in logo

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MARY­LAND pre-school, in Glebe Way, Amer­sham, is launch­ing a new logo to cel­e­brate its links with the an­cient wood­land of Chesham Bois and neigh­bour­ing St Leonard’s Church, which re­cently had its 800th an­niver­sary.

The pre-school is bid­ding a fond farewell to its old logo – a child’s draw­ing of a train – and is in­tro­duc­ing the de­sign of a tree cre­ated from a cross and chil­dren’s hand­prints.

The tree was cho­sen to re­flect the sig­nif­i­cance of the nearby wood­land and Chesham Bois com­mon.

Both are vis­ited reg­u­larly by the chil­dren and form a key part of their out­door play ex­pe­ri­ence and na­ture ex­plo­ration.

Mary­land has also an­nounced For­est School ses­sions will be in­tro­duced by trained mem­bers of staff from Septem­ber. This is an in­spi­ra­tional pro­gramme of­fer­ing learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties through hands-on wood­land play.

But it is not just the wood­land that has an im­por­tant part in the dayto-day life of the preschool, so does its owner, St Leonard’s Church.

Mary­land is the only Chris­tian-run and led nurs­ery in the area. Its Chris­tian val­ues are at the heart of its care for each child while chil­dren from all faiths are wel­comed.

Chair­man of Mary­land pre-school com­mit­tee, Andrea Hay­ers, said: “We feel the new logo en­cap­su­lates what’s re­ally im­por­tant to us here at Mary­land: our Chris­tian val­ues, the im­mi­nent launch of our own For­est School and, of course, our chil­dren, who we hope to see grow and flour­ish just like the im­age of the tree.”

The logo will be launched at the Chesham Bois Vil­lage Fete on Satur­day, where the pre-school will be run­ning a stall.

Chil­dren help to launch the new logo for Mary­land pre-school.
