Each group has explored lots of fantastic opportunities today outside. Baby unit went over to the green area and collected leaves and twigs to add to their tactile. They then further enhanced their provision by following through with a creative activity. Tweenies got messy as they painted using different tools, whilst other children walked along the stones listening to the sound their feet were making. Toddlers challeged their children to take risks as they balanced along the wooden plank. They created a wet sand tactile, whereby the children generated ideas and made marks. PreSchool encouraged the children to use their imaginations as they built castles, and used the space around them to role play. They also prompted the children to recall by drawing their own ideas. What a lovely day, full of quality activities and plenty of learning opportunities!

Parents we will be open as normal today. The estate roads around the Nursery can be extremely icy, if possible leave your car in a safe place and walk the last little bit of your journey. The steps leading to the front of the Nursery will be gritted so please use these instead of the slope.

What an fabulous afternoon we have had. The Preschool children have amazed us with their confidence to stand on a stage in an unknown room with over 100 faces watching them! Every child said their line and all sang happily to the music, no tears in sightπŸ‘πŸ». It was certainly a La Petite Academy super proud moment, a big well done to all the children. I would also like to thank all the staff for their hard work and dedication this year, you were all amazing, 😊

The nursery is conveniently situated away from the main road, in a small crescent opposite the green, and has parking spaces directly in front of the building.
