Happy World Book Day

It is lovely to see all our nursery children dressed up as different book characters today.

We have been reading some of their favourite books from home which all of the children are enjoying.

Reading is vital to the growth of a child’s imagination and such an important part of growing up.

Let us all spend some time appreciating our most loved books today and encourage our children to do them same.

Christmas Has Arrived At Early Days Nurseries

With only 20 sleeps until Christmas, things are in full swing at all of our nurseries.

We have lots of festive fun coming our way in the next couple of weeks.

The children are so excited for their parties, nativity and the panto.

The staff can’t wait either!

 

 

Colourful Crayon Art

We had an amazing visit from Jenny Knight, a local artist who specialises in crayon art.

The children and staff were buzzing with excitement, creating their own crayon art masterpieces.

We can’t wait to display these in the nursery for all our parents to see.

We also learned all about how art can affect how we feel and bring out different emotions.

What a fantastic day, thank you so much Jenny!

Moulding Magic

The children at Old Coates House love using loose parts in our play-doh area.

We have have collected lots of autumnal objects and are getting creative.

Play-doh is a brilliant way to engage children with developing fine motor skills, hand eye coordination and imagination skills.

It can also be calming and therapeutic with the children smashing, squeezing and rolling the play-dough allowing them to release extra energy or stress.

What A Great Idea!

Our Doune Terrace Children’s Committee is up and running and the boys and girls have made a great start.

They have been collecting daily numbers, washing dishes, looking after the babies and tweenies and have even shown a new parent around the nursery!

This month their focus is friendship and helping to settle new children into the pre school room.

Keep up the good work!

Apples and Pears

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.

 

Our Heroes Next Door

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.
