Our Early Days toddlers have been extremely creative in helping us turn our story corner into the stick mans family tree house.
They used our story baskets which are filled with various props to recreate the story, adding in a little bit of their own imaginative thinking along the way.
Imagination is everything!
Our toddlers at Early Days have designed their own painting objects using a variety of outdoor materials.
We collected lots of exciting things during our walk to Dean Village which we took back to nursery so we could paint with nature.
It was so interesting to see the different paint patterns each of our new brushes made.
Our children at Walker Street Nursery were lucky enough to explore Maureen Crandles garden today.
We were there on a very special visit – to help harvest the apples and pears from the beautiful fruitful trees.
We filled five huge tubs of the fruit which we donated to businesses for everyone to enjoy.
And of course we kept a load back for Suzi to make some yummy fruit crumble.
The children at Walker Street had a very special visit from the Fire Brigade last week.
We were all very excited to sit inside the fire engine, try on their hats and play with the water hose.
Even though firefighters had 2 emergency calls while they were with us and had to rush off, they came back each time and answered all our questions.
We are so lucky to have such dedicated emergency service teams.
One of our parents owns a local florist and kindly asked our toddlers along to visit her shop, Rogue Flowers in the West End.
The children were given the opportunity to smell, touch and describe the various flowers, plants and herbs.
There were so many colours and beautiful scents.
It was such a great way to link with our topic and learn about the life cycle of plants.
The Melville Street preschool children have been helping out with different routines in the baby room.
Here is Sally helping to prepare and feed breakfast to baby Rose.
