🐉 Zog 🐉

Over the past two weeks as well as celebrating the football we have been looking at the storybook Zog, the children have had such wild imaginations listening to the story.

This afternoon we explored the cut out characters identifying colours and features, as Princess Pearl in the book takes care of Zog helping to bandage him up when he bumps into trees, we had a go ourselves using them on our friends talking about accidents we may have and how we can help patch each other up 😁

What will sink and what will float❓

This afternoon at nursery we have been very experimental investigating shells and corks finding out what will sink and what will float?

After our little experiment we decided to make a treasure map all together using teabags and coffee to stain the map before marking the treasure with a big ❌

🏴‍☠️ Map Making 🏴‍☠️

This week we are continuing to enjoy our Pirate story!

This week in small groups we are creating treasure maps using tea bags to stain them before we design our maps and hunt for the buried treasure 🪙

⁉️ Chicken pox ⁉️

We now have a few more confirmed cases of chicken pox in nursery. If your child has chicken pox please let a member of the nursery staff know.

During this period if your child is away from nursery with chicken pox and you pay privately fees will be non payable or if you are being cautious and decide to keep children away from nursery as a precaution.

💦 Water Play 💦

Hi everyone! As the weather has been so nice we have been enjoying lots of water play! We do apologise for any wet clothing however once the water is available for the children they are drawn to it and have so much fun splashing and exploring!

If anyone would like to send children in swim clothing such as the pictures that would be fine whilst the weather is so nice or just provide spare clothing so children can be changed if they are wet.

Please also remember hats and shoes which secure children’s feet in them such as sandals/crocs with a strap. Flip flops are not appropriate for nursery as with all the running around we do accidents will happen with feet slipping out of flip flops.

⁉️ Chicken pox ⁉️

We have a suspected case of chicken pox at nursery, please monitor children for small lesions on their body that could be chicken pox. They predominately appear on the belly and under arms at first. If your child has chicken pox please let us know at nursery, the exclusion period from nursery is a week or more depending on lesions healing over.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

We have lots of different containers included a bath, wellies, planters and today we managed to secure ourselves a boat that needs a little decorating and plants added to 😁

Thank you to all of our families who have donated seeds, flowers and planters for our Doncaster in bloom we will take pictures and update our display next week.

Planting more flowers and vegetables, enjoying the sensory experience of ice and natural resources in our play tray!

🍃 Nature week 🍃

Over the next two weeks at nursery we are discovering the world around us and our environment, exploring bug hotels 🐞, matching bugs to our scavenger hunt list, planting more flowers ready for Doncaster in bloom 🌺

Our children have been excellent at accessing the new water machine, showing lots of independence and a can do attitude. Having access to the water machine consistently ensures our little ones have access to water and gives them a little pride knowing they can do this themselves which encourages them to drink a lot more throughout the day 💦

🌼 Doncaster In Bloom 🌼

Hi everyone!

We have some exciting news! As a nursery we have decided we would like to enter Doncaster in Bloom, the children have shown so much enthusiasm in our gardening activities recently and have done so well growing their own sunflowers at home.

We have decided that for our display we would like to pay tribute to all of our key workers who have done such an amazing job over the past year keeping our community going and supporting each other, we have started creating scarecrows which will be decorated as key workers, we have been in touch with a number of services in and around Askern that have been so supportive in offering donations to our display we have uniforms from Doctors, Dentists and the Fire service on their way with much more to come.

We would really love our children to be involved so if there is anything our nursery families would like to see/donate to our display please feel free to and let us know.

We have been very busy planting some of our donated seeds already in wellies, water cans and dinosaur planters.

We will keep you updated with our progress and hopefully when it is time we can invite all of our nursery families in to join our celebration in June. 🥰

Please feel free to like and share within the community as we would love for as much of the community to be involved with our displays as possible 🌼🌸💐🌺🌹

[05/07/21]   ⁉️ Nursery Q&A ⁉️

Afternoon everyone, we know with the restrictions still in place it has been difficult to hold parents events and as drop off and pick up is so busy we don’t always find the time to answer your questions, as a lot of the questions from families are more or less the same we hope the answers below help.

How often do children play outside?

We encourage the children to play outside in all weathers and have the opportunity to access outdoors at all times. Therefore we ask that you ensure children are wearing weather appropriate outfits and shoes. Shoes must have backs on and if the weather is hot please ensure children are wearing sun cream.

What do the children drink and eat?

Children have access to water at all times throughout the day. Breakfast consists of cereal and toast, milk and water, please ensure children have a little something before attending nursery as once children arrive at nursery there is so much to do that they do not always choose to sit and eat breakfast. We have snack in the morning and in the afternoon session. Along with a rolling snack consisting of fruit, sandwiches and biscuits again milk and water are provided.

What does my child need to bring to nursery?

A named bag to contain a spare change of clothes. Your child’s comforter if he or she has one. A lot of children are getting mixed up with water bottles as a lot of them are the same so to reduce the occurrence of children drinking from bottles that are not their own and especially during this time to reduce the risk of the spreading of coughs and colds we are asking that water bottles from home are not brought to nursery. We do always have named beaker for your child to drink from at any time of the day so you need only bring your own bottle if you think your child is more likely to drink from it than from the beaker provided by us. These are filled consistently throughout the session and as we have a sink that is at child height children are encouraged to refill their own water bottles supporting their independence and importance of staying hydrated.

What happens if my child has an accident at nursery?

Any accidents will be logged and a accident form is completed by the member of staff who witnessed the accident, parents/carers are informed on all accidents by a phone call. Accident forms must be signed on collection of the child, we can not provide you with the accident form as these are kept in children’s files however the original can be photocopied on request.

Are all your staff DBS checked?

Yes, all our staff have been DBS checked. We also request health checks for our staff and a minimum of two references. All of our staff are
paediatric first aid trained and first aid training is renewed every 3 years. All our staff regularly attend in-house and external courses, to ensure they are kept up-to-date with their knowledge and maintain the highest professional standards.

What happens if my child is ill?

If your child becomes ill at nursery, his or her condition will be immediately brought to the attention of the manager or a senior member of staff. Symptoms, including any visible signs and body temperature will be closely checked and monitored, and you will be immediately informed. We will discuss with you how best to deal with the matter, including whether you will need to collect your child from the nursery.

We recognise that it can be frustrating when a child is excluded but it is important to bear in mind that the exclusion is for the benefit of all children in the nursery. The Burrows Nursery adheres to the Department of Health guidelines regarding incubation periods and exclusions.

Will I get regular feedback on my child’s progress?

Your child’s progress will be recorded in their online Learning Journey Tapestry. This will include items from their activities, photographs and observations. We encourage parents to add items to the online Tapestry too, we love to see what everyone gets up to our and about and at home. Tapestry is made live towards the end of the half term. Our page is consistently updated with pictures and information on activities children have taken part in.

What happens if my child’s key worker is not at nursery?

We have a Buddy system in place ensuring that key groups are consistent and planned activities are still completed along with observations for tapestry.

How do you monitor access to the nursery?

Only people who are pre-authorised by parents can collect children from our nursery (collection authorisation forms have to be filled in and signed) we have a password system in place. If for any reason you require to change your password please speak to a member of the management team.

Do I still have to pay if we’re on holiday?

Yes - you do still have to pay while you are on holiday to preserve your child’s place at nursery.

What is the EYFS?

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are the statutory curriculum guidelines for all early years providers. The EYFS provides guidance and support for childcare providers on meeting the overall emotional, physical and developmental needs of all children.

Who should I talk to if I have a problem?

Should you have a problem, however big or small, your child’s key person and/or nursery manager will always be available to talk to.

What happens if my child is upset or won’t settle?

No child will ever be left distressed at any time. A few tears on separation from a parent can easily be overcome but if a child became very distressed, and staff were unable to comfort or distract them, then parents would of course be contacted.

What about toilet training?

When children are ready to start toilet training, our staff are happy to support parents and children in this process.

How can I become involved in my child's early education?

We welcome observations on tapestry, at the end of every half term a next steps is generated for each child. If you would like a copy of these next steps these can be added onto tapestry and downloaded so parents/carers can see where children are developmentally and next steps we need to take to progress children’s development.

If you have any questions please speak to a member of the management team.

Thank you

The Burrows 🐰
