    We are delighted to announce that nursery has been awarded first place in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. The grant money will be used to create our new sensory room. Thank you for your support.

    Baby room

    During the recent warm sunny weather we have spent time on local walks, we have explored Crank Caverns and the surrounding fields and gardens, this has encouraged vocalisations, pointing and smiles from the babies. We will be enjoying more topics about nature and the natural world, please come and look at our artwork when you get a chance. We will also be learning about the seaside, we will be exploring water, sand and shells.

    Welcome to our new starters, let us reassure parents that we will make the transition from home to nursery go as smoothly as possible. Thank you.


    Little Toddlers

    Our new starters have settled in very well and are really enjoying exploring their new surroundings and making new friends. Now the weather has started to improve we will be spending more time outdoors, could you please make sure your child has a hat, sun cream and shoes with them in nursery. Thank you

    Big Toddlers

    This month we will be learning all about the great outdoors, focusing on ‘The Curiousity Approach’. This is  a new approach  to children’s play and learning, using children’s natural curiosity. Please check out their face book page for more information.

    We would also like to introduce more real items into our home corner, if you have any items to donate e.g. cushions, photo frames, bric-a-brac etc they will gratefully received.  Thank you.

    Little Group

    Amy is about to go off on maternity and Jemma’s boys will be joining us so we have gained 2 different members of staff, Liz and Louise will be joining us and continuing the fantastic work that Amy and Jemma started.

    This month we will be looking at mini-beasts and creating some fabulous art and craft work, we will also be going on bug hunts and holding a bug hall tea party.

    Middle Group

    Over the next few weeks the children will be exploring the world of mini-beasts. We will start by introducing one of the children’s favourites – The Hungry Caterpillar. The children will observe our classroom caterpillars and watch them grow into beautiful butterflies. The children are very excited to look after our butterflies and we will keep you updated as they grow.

    We would also like to ask if you could provide your child with a sun hat and sun cream as the weather is becoming warmer.


    We will be continuing with our new beginnings topic this month ,we are currently learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and hoping to follow this with the life cycle of a frog. This will then lead nicely onto ‘The Farm’ this is always a popular topic with the children. We will be learning about animals and hoping to get a real tractor to visit the nursery. If anyone has recently visited a farm we would love it if you could share any pictures with us for our group discussions. Thank you.
