Our Little Tinkers have been enjoying their new wood working experience. The children have been learning to use the hammers and nails, using the vices to hold their wood pieces, and gaining control of their hammers.

Woodwork helps to provide essential skills for life. Personal, social and emotional development is at the heart of wood working, and also aids physical development, creative and mathematical thinking, investigating and developing children’s language.

Our children are learning to self-regulate their behaviour at the workbench and this allows them to experience risk in a controlled way and to self risk assess, by learning how to use their tools safely.

When the children are familiar and have learnt to use and handle their hammers and nails safely, more tools will be added for them for use.

Well done guys you were all fab and used your hammers very safely 🔨 🔨 🔨

🧡🧡🧡We have a donation bucket at nursery for Jeffrey and his family if any parents wish to donate🧡🧡🧡


🧡Batten’s Disease Jeffreys Soldiers🧡

This is to raise funds for such a lovely little boy Jeffrey who attended Little Tinkers, but left for school in September 2020 - some of our current parents will remember him 🥰

Jeffrey is almost 5 years old and after almost 2 years of being diagnosed with epilepsy, doctors have now diagnosed him with a very rare genetic disorder known as late infantile Batten disease. The symptoms of this disease mean that Jeff will lose his ability to talk, to walk, lose his sight, memory and be unable to eat. Children with Batten disease have a life expectancy of 6-12 years. The news has shattered Jeffrey's family. The initial step was for Jeffrey to have an MRI scan in London, he has had an operation on his brain. Now Jeffrey will need to travel to London every single fortnight for the rest of his life for an injection in the hope to slow down the process of the disease.

We are wanting to raise as much money as possible for Andy, Sheryl and Jeffrey. No parents should ever have to receive the news that they have and finances should not be something for them to ever worry about. We want to help provide them with the best memories with Jeffrey, help them with travel costs, living costs and hopefully towards some treatment if given the chance.

Jeffrey is such a lovable, funny and adorable little boy, who does not deserve what is happening to him

🔨 🦺 We are so excited to be introducing Woodwork at Little Tinkers ☺️ 🔨 🪵

Woodwork provides a unique learning experience for young children. It is rich in so many areas of learning and development and it is an activity which children really enjoy doing, being absorbed for extended periods of time. It encompasses creative thinking, maths skills, scientific investigation, physical development and coordination, developing language and vocabulary, and much more ☺️

Hello everyone. 👋 this is Jeffrey. Jeffrey attended Little Tinkers Day Nursery from the age of 2 years until he left for school in September 2020.

Jeffrey is the most resilient child I have ever come across. His cheeky smile is constant and even after an awful couple of years he still takes everything in his stride.

Jeffrey is such a lovable, funny and adorable little boy, who does not deserve what is happening to him - life is just so cruel.

Please dig deep people and help this lovely family through this absolutely devastating time 😢.
