Latest News

We value all feedback as this helps us look at all aspects of the nursery, what we have done well and what potential improvements that could be made going forward. These were some of the comments put forward to us for last year:

“We cannot praise the team enough for everything that they have done to aid my sons learning and development. Each staff member having their own unique expertise which in turn makes for a strong team”

“My child has flourished since starting at nursery and we can only put this down to the range of activities she is exposed to and the outstanding care.”

“The staff have cared and supported our son extremely well, with kindness and a real interest in him as an individual.”

“My son is always welcomed at nursery with a smile and a friendly welcome.”

We would have no hesitation in recommending you as a setting and would like to thank you for being part of our child’s life.”

“We are sad to be leaving, the environment that is created makes me and my husband feel confident and reassured that our child is safe and happy.”

“We couldn’t ask for better day care – welcoming, dedicated and an unwavering team, fantastic facilities….the nursery is second to none.”

Our Monthly Newsletter is sent out from Denise our Nursery Manager to all parents/carers . This contains all Nursery updates, reminders and important information.

Term Dates are found here, these are of the current academic year.

What did we do through the month of January?

“The children have settled back into Nursery really well – both the returners and the new starters, welcome to our new families.
The children have enjoyed independently accessing craft materials from our new trolley and it has meant that materials that were tucked away for storage are now freely and visibly available for them to use as they wish.  There have been some fantastic creations, wrapping up items in paper and covering paper in stickers.
Outside, we have been exploring the ice and frost  – noticing what items had frozen within the ice.  What happens when it breaks or if the sun shines on it. 
There have been more activities on offer as always and the children have explored them all!

We opened up our newly refurbished sandpit to the children and they have flocked into it – laying in it, jumping into it, digging, building sandcastles – you name it they have done it and all with so much enjoyment!  The staff have enjoyed it as well – reminding us how much learning, development, talking and interactions happen in the sandpit – it’s been great!
Water play has been a feature inside, with various resources for the children – fishing for fish, purring from jugs into waterwheels.

We have come back to a fun filled week with new opportunities – Pancake Toddle and Forest School – both of which have been thoroughly enjoyed by all!  

Thank you for coming to watch the children toddle around with their pancakes – it took a lot of effort to keep their pancake on their plate and balance, bend low and weave in and out of obstacles.  Well done to them all!” Helen Honeyball – Deputy Manager

What did we do through the month of March?

“Forest School has been a great adventure and the children readily accepted getting kitted out for the outdoor experience with such independence – it was great to see.  In Forest School the children – balanced on and jumped off logs, climbed trees, hid in the undergrowth, drew in the mud with sticks and more!” Helen Honeyball – Deputy Manager

Fundraising

We have various fundraising activities throughout the year, many are ones that the children can participate in making it a fun way to raise money for Nursery resources.

We have already started our fundraising for the year with our ‘Sponsored Find’ where the children are set tasks to find or draw various items, we then held our ‘Pancake Toddle’ where children navigated an obstacle course with their pancakes in hand. We have since then held our Easter Raffle where we have raffled off 4 hampers of goodies and raised £75.

This year to date we have raised a fantastic amount of £1175.00!

A huge thank you to all parents/carers for your continued support!
