Merry Christmas and a happy new year from everyone in the Preschool room! ... See MoreSee Less
🎉🎄🎁🎀 On Thursday the toddlers all had so much fun at their Christmas party. The toddlers got into the Christmas spirit by dancing to the Christmas music and dressing up for the Christmas party!
We had a very special visitor come to the nursery too (Santa Clause). All of the children were very polite to Santa and gave him a big wave, some of them were even brave enough to go for a cuddle! After lots of party fun they all sat down for a Christmas snack and a drink. Thank you to everybody who came. ... See MoreSee Less
The children were very excited to see the amazing police dogs come and visit. The police dog handlers explained all of the different jobs the dogs do, the children thought the dogs were very clever. Thank you very much to Nicki and Rupert and their dogs. ... See MoreSee Less
The Pre-school children have enjoyed taking part in different activities throughout the week all to do with Children In Need. They had lots of fun making a big 'Pudsey Bear', using sponges and the colour yellow.
Also, they got sticky and messy making 'Pudsey Bear' faces and they were able to use different materials to decorate the eye patch such as buttons, paint dobbers and glitter circles.
We raised money by having a pyjama day and going on a charity walk around the community. Thank you everyone for taking part and donating!! ... See MoreSee Less
The toddler room have been very busy this week raising money for charity. The events that have occurred included 'spotty Monday'. This gave the children the chance to wear spots to raise money for children in need.
On Tuesday Jody did a sponsored silence, Jody completed this silence and managed to raise lots of money, well done Jody!
On Wednesday both of the children and staff wore their pyjamas, everybody was very cosy for the day.
On Thursday there was a cake sale held, many people were very generous to donate resulting in a sell out of cakes!
Friday all of the toddlers got the chance to join in on a sponsored walk. One group went to the coop, who let us stand outside and ask for donations. The second group took a walk down to Allandale Road, this resulted in all the kind people donating lots of money. A big thankyou to every person who has donated, sponsored and taken part in our children in need week😁 ... See MoreSee Less
Children in need is approaching next week and Jody from the toddler room has agreed to do a sponsored silence for this great cause. (For those who know Jody, you will know how difficult / impossible this will be!!) 🙂
The sponsored silence will be held on Tuesday 13th November. If you would like to sponsor Jody, please fill in the sponsorship form on the door of the toddler room. All donations are welcome, thank you very much 😁 ... See MoreSee Less
The Preschool had an amazing Halloween today! The children and staff both had lots of fun dressing up in different costumes and everyone looked great! We carved some pumpkins and the children enjoyed exploring what was inside and feeling the seeds with their hands. It was a very sticky activity!
Jody also brought her black cat, Lowkey, in to visit us. He was very well behaved and enjoyed lots of strokes from the children.
Everyone made handprint spiders and had lots of fun painting their own hands and drawing faces on their spiders.
Later Linda brought her face paints in and the children loved being transformed into lots of different things, including a unicorn, a cat, a fairy and a tiger! ... See MoreSee Less
The baby room have had lots of Halloween fun today. We carved some pumpkins and the babies took part in messy play, exploring the insides by feeling the cold texture and scooping the seeds.
We also had a very exciting guest visit in the baby room, Jody's cat Loki, who the babies were in awe of and some were even brave to stroke his soft fur.
In the lead up to Halloween, the babies had made some spooky crafts, including footprint ghosts and handprints spiders and pumpkins, they enjoyed exploring the texture of the paint between their fingers and toes! ... See MoreSee Less
The children have had lots of fun for Halloween today. The theme has been black cats and pumpkins. All 3 rooms have had the experience of meeting Jody's cat from home, 'Lowkey'.
The children got to touch Lowkey and explore how to treat animals using their kind hands. Lowkey got a little bit scared so some of the children gave him some cuddles. This has shown the children have started to understand emotions and how to react to them. ... See MoreSee Less
