Marvellously Messy Fun

We have had a marvellously messy day today in the reception room.

The children were exploring textures through sensory play using spaghetti and other foods you could find in your own kitchen at home. We were also promoting the children's fine and gross motor skills using tools such as tweezers and ladles to fill and empty small cups and large buckets.

Sensory Play in the Baby Room

The babies had great fun today exploring our story trays in our sensory area.

Sensory play helps babies to develop curiosity about their environment and its sounds, shapes and smells. Exploratory play is also beneficial for their ever-evolving fine and gross motor skills, and also for developing self awareness, self confidence and self esteem. It encourages babies to discover their likes (and dislikes!) and form independent skills...

Teamwork Makes The Dreamwork

Our generation are used to fast living, speed and multitasking as we cram a million things into each and every day.

When a Parent finds the time out of their busy schedule to sit and write a thank you to my wonderful team, it never fails to stop me in my tracks and takes my breath away.

Regardless of the countless measures and controls I have in place to monitor my business success, this is at the end of the day the only thing that matters.

I would like to share this with any Parent who feels the struggle and guilt trying to meet your childcare needs. Don’t give up... the right Nursery is out there for you.

Summer Family Holiday Tips Learnt This Year

Past family holidays at the Jones’s aren’t quite like the Thomas Cook adverts. Each year I imagine the pool splashing, the laughter, the sandcastle, the cocktails and the sunsets. Yet... they never quite materialize how I imagined. Add into the equation my Mother who seems to become a human cocktail calorie calculator at the first sniff of Malibu, and I literally want to drive myself off the cliff of sanity.
