A wonderful turn out today! And the weather stayed dry too β˜€οΈ A huge thank you to everyone who came to our Summer Fayre, bought raffle tickets, and donated prizes - we couldn’t have done it without you!

So far we have made a whopping £1060 profit, which is absolutely incredible and will all go back into the nursery for new experiences and equipment for the children 🌸

We still have some ice creams leftover so we will be selling these at home times over the next few weeks until they are gone (we will still have the card machine if needed).

And lastly a huge thank you to our helpers Gemma, Sarah, Amanda, Dan, Tom, Jo, Charlotte, Hannah, Heather, and Ted - you are all amazing for giving up your Saturdays to raise money for our children, we really appreciate you all πŸ’š Stay tuned for our Christmas Fayre coming up at the end of the year πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ


Our Summer Fayre is tomorrow! Looking forward to seeing you all πŸŽπŸ­πŸ¦β˜€οΈ


Happy Father’s Day to all our wonderful nursery daddies. Hope you’re all having a lovely day with your little ones πŸ’š


πŸŽ‰ It’s our 4th Birthday today πŸŽ‰

On the 17th June 2019 we opened the doors to our nursery for the first time. We welcomed in 6 happy children with Pauline, Jade and Yasmin, and our journey began. Fast forward to today, we have 6 more amazing staff members and a nursery full of clever, funny, cheeky little ones! 4 years later and we still absolutely love every day we get to spend doing the job we are so passionate about πŸ’š

Next year is our 5th birthday (half a decade!!! 🫒), so plans are beginning for a birthday bash for all current and past children, and their families - more details to follow πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽ‰

A massive thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 4 years, we couldn’t do it without you. Here’s to many more happy years and unforgettable memories πŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰

The lovely lady who adopted our ducklings brought a couple back to nursery today so we could see how much they have grown! We loved stroking and cuddling them (when they didn’t run away!), watching them swim in the water, and feeding them lots of frozen peas and spinach! πŸ¦†πŸ£


β˜€οΈπŸ¦This year our Summer Fayre is on Saturday 1st July between 11am and 3pm. Lots of amazing stalls planned including a BBQ, ice creams and scones, games for the children, and a raffle with some amazing prizes including several free cleans of your home from local cleaners, restaurant vouchers, vouchers from cake makers, vouchers from local hairdressers, activity vouchers (Mead Farm, Planet Ice and Bletchley Park) and lots more!

We are still on the look out for bottles/cans of alcohol for our alcohol Tombola; any raffle prizes (chocolates, new toys, vouchers from local businesses, gift sets), and prizes for our Tombola (toiletries, tins, packets, sweets etc). Please let us know if you have any of these at home you no longer want/would like to donate - thank you! πŸ¦β˜€οΈ

Recently the children have been fascinated with seeds. At snack time, they have been asking to take the apple/watermelon seeds outside to plant in the garden so we can grow our own; some of them have even taken the seeds home to attempt to grow their own apple trees in their gardens. We have potatoes and carrots almost ready to plant, but whilst we are waiting patiently, the children really enjoyed our seed activity this afternoon! Children loved using tweezers and spoons to collect seeds from a variety of fruits, and it was nice to have a little taste too! πŸŒ±πŸŽπŸ‰πŸ₯

Yesterday the children harvested our first batch of potatoes that they had grown and taken care of over the last few months. After the children found all the potatoes, we washed them, cooked them, and then ate them for lunch! πŸ˜‹πŸ₯”πŸͺ΄

Happy World Book Day! Although we celebrate books every day, World Book Day is a great way to promote this further with our children.

The last two years have been nothing but the best πŸ‘πŸΌ Even if we did have a global pandemic in our first year!!
