Zohaib has been missing nursery and asks after Saima and Chris everyday ⭐️⭐️

So we made a butterfly for them at the weekend and a rainbow to say thank you to everyone 🦋🌈
Hope everyone is keeping safe...At the Sledden house we're going on an Easter Egg hunt around the house and back garden as the Easter Bunny has hidden eggs everywhere! #staysafesavelives
Can't belive today has come around so fast. My boys last day at nursery. Thank you all so much for everything. You have been a big part in my son's life for the last two year. It's going to be so emotional saying our goodbyes later on. Thanks again lovely ladies ######

The children absolutely love outdoors and they love climbing and exploring the equipment we have set up daily in the garden...

They have enjoyed having a go at shadow drawing today and using the wonky walker climbing frame.

At Little Oaks we Nurture, Inspire and Have fun everyday... So today we have had lots of fun with Bubbles both inside and outside!

We even sang a rhyme about Bubbles,

I have a tiny turtle and his name is Tiny Tim,
I put him in the bathtub to see if he can swim,
He ate up all the water and ate up all the soap,
And now he's ill in bed with a bubble in his throat!

This week the children have been looking at numbers in the preschool room. They have been collecting leaves and placing the correct number of leaves with the correct numbers. The children have been learning about number recognition and different quantities.

In baby room the children had lots of fun playing in blue and pink foam. The children enjoyed clapping their hands, blowing the foam off their hands and also mixing the colours together. All the children loved getting messy during this activity and exploring the different textures.

So we had some Saturday morning excitement outside our house this morning with fire engines arriving at a neighbours house... Ada-Mae and William went into the garden to say hello. Ada-Mae said they are here because there's an emergency. The fire fighters were friendly and said hello, we even heard them sound their siren!!!! I wonder if one of our parents was on shift, they are very brave doing this dangerous job!!!!

Following the Prime Minister’s statement last night confirming the relaxation of restrictions we are now awaiting detailed Government guidelines on how this will be applied to nursery settings.

Once we have received these and had time to digest their implications we will issue further details and revise procedures where appropriate.

Our priority remains the wellbeing of our nursery team and the families we support.

The babies have enjoyed exploring crazy soap, they used the soap to make cupcakes, they sprinkled their cupcakes with sprinkles using their fingers tips, they especially enjoyed squishing and squashing the soap in their hands and between their fingers, they laughed and giggled when the crazy soap was squashed and it made floaty bubbles in the air!

So we are through to the semi-final and our next match is on Wednesday at 8pm so with this in mind to celebrate our success so far, we are inviting everyone to come to nursery on Wednesday dressed in red and white or England shirts if you have one!!!!

So yesterday some of our children were telling us that they were going to be watching the England match last night, with this in mind the staff decided get the footballs out in the garden and the children used them to paint on a very large piece of paper!

The children took it in turns to roll and kick the ball across the paper and they talked about how far the ball went, comparing which person managed to get the ball to go the furthest.

Yay!!! 2-0 our boys did it! We're through to the quarter finals!!! Did you watch the match? Footballs coming home!!

The babies celebrated National Picnic Day the other day by having a picnic.

The intent of this activity was to encourage the children the explore different textures and taste and try new foods!

Rebecca provided the children with an area to have their picnic and a variety of resources including utensils and different types of fruit, she talked to the children and described the fruit, the children they explored the activity independently.

The impact of this activity was a positive one as all the children were engaged in the activity, they were supported to understand sharing and turn taking and they seemed to enjoy the tastes of the fruit that they were given to eat.

It’s that time of year where we say goodbye to some of our children as they take their next big step and leave for Big School!😢

We’re now busy making plans for graduation and also ensuring all our paperwork is up to date.

If your child is due to leave this year please email us to confirm the date of their final day in nursery and also to let us know if you are going to need any additional sessions of care to cover for the staggered starts that some schools have in the few weeks.

The preschool children have been getting artistic today and they have been creating pieces of artwork using their fingers, cotton buds and twigs, to explore how different mark making implements create different marks and textures in the paints.
