“My mum wouldn’t let me climb right up to the top. Climbing trees are more fun than tablets,” said five-year-old ‘Up a Tree’ participant Hidde. Together with his classmates, Hidde had the chance to spend a couple of hours at Ebben’s nursery during the first ‘Up A Tree’ tree climbing afternoon. After some climbing tips and tricks, Toon Ebben sent the children into the tree. And he didn't have to ask twice. As soon as they were given the green light, the group of children from De Waai primary school in Cuijk stormed towards the trees and clambered upwards like agile little monkeys.
The ‘Up a Tree’ event by Ebben Nurseries will be a recurring annual event for primary school pupils. On the last day of the school year, the group of children from De Waai primary school was picked up in a real American school bus and brought to the nursery. With some handy tips on how to climb higher safely, the children were challenged to try out different kinds of climbing trees. First a bit of practice with the smaller tree species, ready to then conquer the very biggest trees in the nursery.
