What we've been up to...

Staffing

We would like to wish a warm welcome to Casey.
Casey holds a childcare level 3 qualification and will be based in pre-school.

Pre-school pirates

We had some empty boxes and tubes in the garden which led the children to start roleplaying and pretending that the boxes and tubes were pirate ships.

We extended their learning by reading a pirate story outside.  While the story was being read a staff member dressed up as pirate to surprise the children. The children absolutely loved this! 

The children enjoyed looking for treasure around the garden, finding different silver pots and pans and singing and dancing with the pirate!

Toddlers taking care of baby dolls

The toddlers have enjoyed taking care of the baby dolls recently.

They have been washing the baby dolls using cloths in soapy water and using the toothbrushes to brush their teeth. 

This encouraged lots of communication and language development. The children used phrases such as “all clean”, “wash”  and “teeth brushed”. 

Staff also spoke to the children about why it is important to brush our teeth and wash our bodies.

Visit from the photographer

The children had a lovely experience of having their photos taken by Photography by Carrie and we look forward to seeing and sharing your child’s photos with you.
