Marlborough Mid-Week : December 3rd 2014
NEWS Preschoolers in business of shopkeeping The children at St Mary’s Preschool have been showing off their business savvy and stocking their library with their profits over the past three weeks. They run a shop twice a day for fellow pupils and parents to buy produce like lemons, eggs, herbs and sweet treats, learning about working with money and customer service. Head teacher Hazel Shapcott says the idea for the shop began when they cut a branch from their bay leaf tree and some of the children said they should sell the leaves, and lemons from their lemon tree. The idea quickly grew as parents and teachers got on board to provide more produce and treats to sell. The money all goes towards buying new books for their library, with the children being given the chance to choose the books. ‘‘Everything is sold for $1 and the chil- dren take turns looking after the shop. ‘‘It’s been a wonderful teaching tool and they have learned all sorts of things like advertising and we even have little ‘‘business management meetings’’, it’s been great fun,’’ Hazel says. They plan to run the shop until the end of the term. Booming business: St Mary’s Preschool children, from left, Gareth Sheard, 4, Aiden McKendrick, 4, and Idena Schultze, 4, man the preschool’s shop.
