The Nursery Family

There is no priority greater than your family. We are a small group of six day nurseries offering home from home care and education in safe, secure and vibrant nursery facilities where your child can be nurtured and cared for throughout the whole day.

Operating as usual

Our Lancing setting are certainly leaving marks in their invitations to learn today. 🖍

Children explored shapes, numbers and marks by using large movements on the floor. They then extended their learning by drawing around each other.

Some of the children also enjoyed exploring numbers outside in sensory trays!

All of our invitations to learn are based on interests the children experiences either within the setting or at home. By educating the children based on interest from home, this builds strong parental partnerships between parents and the practitioners.

If you can’t get to the airport for a holiday…… why not bring the airport to you! ✈️

Our Lower Beeding setting have been busy creating their very own planes to jet them off to any where in the world!

From Bournemouth to Brisbane, these guys have been everywhere!

Given the children opportunity to create their own role play based on previous events allows them to share their experiences with others!

Forks aren’t just for enjoying meals with.

Within the baby room at our Shoreham setting, they have been expressing themselves through free art by using utensils you may find around a kitchen!

When an interest keeps on giving! 🥋

The children at our Purbrook setting received a visit from two Karate teachers who gave them a special lesson in the art!

By exposing children to new and exciting activities, it allows them to not only extend on their experiences but it also gives them huge opportunities to build upon physical, hand to eye coordination but also encourages children to follow complex instructions from others while maintaining focus for a period of time

And so the adventures begin 🎓

Especially for some of the children at our Ashington setting! Over the past few weeks some of the children are completing their chapter within the Nursery Family and starting their new chapter at school.

These children have bought nothing but laugher, adventures and most of all memories at the nurseries! We are going to miss you!

No better way to start the week than surprise visitors! 🐌

Over the weekend our Shoreham setting’s resident African snails had babies! By having animals in the setting, it gives the them to opportunity to focus on well being and how to care for the world around them.

What else could you use a wheelbarrow for?…… 🥰

Our Lower Beeding setting know how to have fun by simply using a wheelbarrow as a mode of transport for little ones instead of flowers!. What an amazing way to bring joy and create memories during on their days at the setting to tell their families! ☺️

With the Olympic’s continuing in Tokyo and team GB doing extremely well. Our Shoreham setting today have been exploring field sports!

With Hockey being the focus over in Tokyo, The Nursery Manager Hannah Simpson bought in her full hockey kit to show the children! They really enjoyed being able to hold the equipment and have a go at being a part of a team! Well done team Shoreham #thenurseryfamily #inthemoment #eyfsearlyyears #shoreham #westsussex

Who doesn’t love a bit of colour and create your very own version of connect 4! 🎨

Our Purbrook setting has been extending on their colour and number sequences. By using resources found around them they worked together to connect the blocks to 4 while linking together ideas on colour mixing!

What a way to brighten up a rainy day! #thenurseryfamily #inthemoment #eyfs #earlyyears #purbrook #hampshire #logcialthinkers #connectingthedots

Potions, lotions, bricks and mortar 🧱

Our Ashington setting have been busy little builders and wizards 🧙🏼. The children have been using their creative skills and logical thinking to build their own structures and special spells!

By inviting the children to achieve these goals, it opens up a variety of different learning aspects!

If you were an Olympian, what sport would you compete in?.

This week our Purbrook setting explored and experienced the Olympics. From Olympic ring painting, opening ceremonial torches to even rhythmic gymnastics, they did them all! 🤸🏼‍♀️.

What a lovely way to broaden the children’s learning by talking giving them the experiences based on special sporting events around the world. Well done Purbrook!

Today we are visiting our Lancing setting and no better way to get through a Thursday is to play with crazy soap! 🧼

The children really enjoyed exploring the way it moves by using a variety of resources (and even their taste buds 🤣).

What a lovely way to bring teaching outside! 🌸

Our Lower Beeding setting have been exploring paint by mixing colors using different flowers and herbs. By inviting the children to expand on their senses of touch, taste, sight, sound and smell this brings a whole element of extending their learning just by simply sing the environment around them

What a colorful way to start a Tuesday 🦋

Our Shoreham setting has been exploring the life cycle of butterflies and today the butterflies were strong enough to be set free 🥰.

By allowing the children to investigate first hand by nurturing these beautiful creatures from a caterpillar to a butterfly. This exposes them to understanding how we care for others, along with building upon their functional development skills. #eyfs #curiouserandcuriouser #thenurseyfamily #shoreham #earlyyears #inthemoment #lifycycles

Happy Monday!

Our Purbrook setting certainly know how to keep cool in this lovely weather! The children source the ingredients and worked together to make their very own ice lollies! This kind of activity helps to promote their mathematical skills by weight, adding and subtracting along with their physical, communication, Personal social and emotional elements of their development!

This morning at our Ashington setting we had a very special visitor come and play. Ruby Dog!

As part of the extension to the children’s interests of animals, habitats and how we look after them! The children took it in turns to brush her and give her a little treat. Afterwards the children played a group activity of catch with Ruby which not only was very enjoyable but also helps to build upon their communication and physical skills!

Today we are heading over to our Shoreham setting 🥰

The children have had a fun packed morning filled with exploring how we nurtured the world around them. They experienced this by watering their plants using water cans, feeding the birds in the garden and also washing up the pots and pans in the mud kitchen after they finished making their mud smoothies.

The children have enjoyed the sunshine so much they wanted to bring Shoreham beach to the setting! They created their very own beaches by transporting sand to different areas in the garden and simply adding water! 🏖

Lots of mid week fun happening at our Lancing setting!

In the caterpillar room, the children have been working on following simple instructions while building upon their physical skills. They have achieved this by creating super yummy rice Krispy cakes 🧁.

In the butterfly room the children have been getting in touch with their inner architect by exploring different ways to build structures by using different resources they find around their environments. 👷🏼‍♀️👷🏾

Lancing certainly know how to build upon the children’s interests (see what we did there). ☺️

No better way to make the most of this sunshine then spending it at the mud kitchen and in the outdoor art studio! 🎨

At our Lower Beeding setting, some of the children at have been making wombat stew in their new mud kitchen while others have been creating observational art by expressing their own interests in famous artists.

This gives the children the opportunity to express their own ideas either as individuals or working together. #earlyyearsoutdoor #earlyyears #thenurseryfamily #lowerbeeding #westsussex #inthemoment #sunshine #eyfs #curiouserandcuriouser #curiousminds

Happy Friday! ☀️

Today, our Hampshire setting has been filled with little investigators. In the cottage garden, the children have been creating their own observational art by looking at bugs they have found within the garden. By creating their own observational art, the children are building on their pen control while expressing themselves through meaningful marks.

The children have also been exploring solar power at the water station. This is a great way for children to explore cause and effect while working together as a team to find out why and how it works!. This is also a great way to cool down in this glorious weather 💦. #thenurseryfamily #earlyyears #causeandeffect #curious #curiouserandcuriouser #inthemoment #rockinghorse #eyfs #waterplay #observationaldrawing #expressing #hampshire

This is what happens when you provide toddlers with resources and choice. 🥰

In the toddler room at our Ashington setting, they have been promoting individuality and independence by inviting the children to create their own potions and lotions. Today they opted for conditioner, shaving foam, pasta, green food colouring and peppermint essence!

Today the children at our Shoreham setting enjoyed going on an adventure to their local park while making the most of this glorious sunshine ☀️.

By visiting local parks, this helps the children to build upon their gross motor skills, balancing and co-ordination skills! #earlyyears #thenurseryfamily #explorers #curious #curiouserandcuriouser #inthemoment #thenurseryfamily #sussex #hampshire

Football has certainly been the main focus of interest in the pre-school room today. ⚽️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

The children worked together and created the idea of using tables as goal posts and a whistle from the investigation station. They were certainly competitive when Kerrie the Nursery Manager wanted to join in 🤣. #earlyyears #earlyyearseducation #wonderandawe #curiosityapproach #curiosity #workingtogether
