Children In Need and Parents sharing week 13.11.17

This week some parents came into nursery on those days where our heating was working to share their skills with the children. We listened to stories, decorated gingerbread men and decorated cakes. On Friday for Children in Need we have a disco outside with pom poms and the children came in wearing something spotty. We raised £47.91!


Family Gardening Day

What an amazing transformation in our nursery sensory garden, mud kitchen area, digging area and forest school!

Thank you so much to all of the children and families who came along to give their help and support to transform the areas in nursery for the children. We worked so hard and just take a look at what we accomplished in just 6 hours!

We even had time to put the spare wood chippings all round our forest school path.

Leo and Max found some worms!

We also ate some of our raspberries! They were lovely an juicy!

We also found 2 big green caterpillars!

I wonder what had been eating our apples?


09.11.17 Nursery Drop In Session

Another successful nursery drop in session completed today. Thank you so much to the parents and families who attended, we will be hosting the workshops that you require soon and look forward to seeing you and other families who could not make today at them in the future. We thank you kindly for your continued support.

Nursery Drop In Sessions

This morning Miss Reed held a drop in session for our parents in our studio to discuss anything that the parents wanted to! We talked about the different types of workshops that parents would like us to host, what is going well in nursery, any concerns parents had and discussed the needs of their children. We also arranged for 2 parents to become our parent helpers to sort out the children’s story sacks when this type of library is ready to be available. Parents will be invited to a story sack workshop before this begins. Gemma from Primrose children’s centre came to offer her support and discuss how she can support families in her role as an outreach worker. Her flyer is below with the details of her support. For further information about anything we offer for parents and families at nursery, visit our ‘Parents and Partners in Early Years’ display board in reception or ask any member of staff. Alternatively you could attend another one of these sessions on Thursday 9th November 2pm!

Harvest Festival 3.10.17

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Harvest celebration this morning.  It was lovely to see so many people there.  Thank you for all of the Harvest gifts which you have sent in.  They are going to the Food Bank in South Shields to help those in need of a little support.
