Halloween

Hi all,

It’s Halloween soon and we’re going all out for it. Each room are having a competition to see who can design and create the best Halloween decorations and displays. The winning room will get a prize for their children! Not only this, we will also be taking the children trick or treating around the nursery. Each room are decorating their doors as we speak. Instead of providing the children with lots of sweets during this activity, each room will be baking a variety of tasty treats beforehand and these are the items that the children will be taking home.

More details will be provided nearer the time.

I hope you’re as excited as we are!

See you all soon.

Toddlers Room (2-3 years)

Hello again,

I mentioned last week that our maintenance man decorated our Pre-School room, well, have a look at our Toddlers room. How lovely does it look? The Toddlers team have worked so hard to ensure the children have a vibrant and welcoming environment to play and learn in. A variety of activities are planned according to the children’s development and next steps, therefore the children’s progression is continuously encouraged.

The good new is, we still have spaces! So, why don’t you bring your children to come and have a look around our nursery.

See you soon!

New and improved Pre-School

Hi there!

Guess what? We have improved our Pre-School room. Our maintenance man has done a very good job at painting our room, which has given it a bigger and fresher look. The new Pre-School staff have taken advantage of this and changed the room around, adding in new areas of learning for the children.

Pre-School now consists of:

  • A thinking area: this is a comfortable space for the children to go to, when they need to think about their behaviour or calm down. It’s full of age-appropriate books for the children to look through and learn how to be a good friend, the diversity of their peers, hands are not for hitting and teeth are not for biting. As well as this, there are a variety of stress realise toys to help the children with calming down their behaviour.
  • A reading garden: the Pre-School team have brought the outdoors inside to create a calming and enticing reading area for the children to explore their favourite stories. Not only does this area encourage reading, there are also finger puppets for the children to act out their favourite stories with their peers, to support their imagination.
  • Circle time: the children now participate in a daily circle time where they discuss the day, date and month, as well as the weather and season. The children are given specific jobs to be responsible for, for that day; chair monitor, end of the line, line leader, cloakroom monitor and water monitor. The leading adult will also go through the children’s daily activities and add the required pictures to our visual timetable, which allows the children to understand what comes next in their routine.
  • Independence: we now have cereal dispensers for the children to choose and make their own breakfast in a morning. Moving through to dinner, the children now have their own dinner trays, identical to the ones they have in schools! Therefore, the children are encouraged to self-serve their dinners, as well as having a water dispenser for the children to access at any time of the day.
  • Academic activities: after our morning circle time, the children are split into smaller groups to participate in academic activities. Monday and Wednesday mornings are for mathematics, where as Tuesday and Thursday mornings have a literacy focus. Fridays are our fun days where science experiments are carried out during the morning and planned P.E. lessons in the afternoon.

Why don’t you come down and have a look for yourself. You can see the children in their environment learning and having fun, as well as speaking to the Pre-School team themselves.
