A huge thank you to all the parents who donated to the hygeine bank appeal. Alongside the Walsh Memorial Infant school in Ash we managed to make 22 bags of goodies for the charity!
Can’t believe it’s her last day at nursery today and she starts reception next week 💖😢 ###x thank you for everything ladies, we are going to miss you all so much ###
Lauren says thank you so much for her birthday present and card 💓😘 xx
So today was my son Danny's last day at caterpillas I was a tad emotional 😓 he starts his new journey of school in September.
I just want to thank you all for your support, encouragement and making Danny's pre school time fun and enjoyable, he will miss you all.
We loved everything about the nursery and would highly recommend to friends and family :)

We are a new Nursery in Farnham Surrey which is near Aldershot and Farnborough Hampshire. We offer day care for children from birth to 5 years.

Operating as usual

Wednesday was our Christmas Dinner Day!🎄✨
I think it’s safe to say it went down very well!
The children and staff enjoyed a home cooked Christmas roast dinner with chocolate Yule Log slices for pudding.
We celebrated with some traditional christmas cracker pulling and some christmas tunes to make if feel even more like christmas.
Tina did an amazing job with all of the food, and the staff made their classrooms look so festive.
What a lovely treat on the run up to the best time of year! 🎅🏼🎄

The children got to enjoy some very wintery and festive activities. It even became a bit of a competition as to which activity was the best!!! Which one would you like to play with? ☃️❄️☃️❄️

A couple of weeks ago Environmental Health came to undertake their regular inspection of the kitchen. I am pleased to be able to share that we maintained our 5 star award. 🎉

Well, what a wonderful morning our Christmas Fayre was!
Thank you to everyone who joined us, helping to make it such a great morning and to anyone who donated any yummy treats/ gifts to go towards the stalls.
It was lovely to see everyone getting into the Christmas spirit, getting together and having such a great time! It was especially great to see all of the children enjoying themselves, and getting to meet Father Christmas as well as enjoying the delicious treats🎅🏼🎄
A special thank you to Santa’s little elves, who worked very hard to make sure everyone got a chance to meet Santa. They did a fabulous job!
We look forward to all of the further Christmas celebrations yet to come over the next month🎉

Wow! what a great day we have had, supporting Children in Need. The children all looked great in their cosy pyjamas with some especially cute dressing gowns and matching onesies!
Preschool got involved in some creative activities, all Pudsy themed. They were all taught why we support Children in Need and enjoyed every minute of it.💛
We would like to thank all of the parents and children for getting involved and donating towards Children in Need.
We hope you enjoyed the cookies too!! 🍪

Last Week was a busy week at Caterpillars Childcare!
We celebrated two very special events that bought some amazing activities, sparking many areas of learning.
✨DIWALI ACTVITIES✨
We love to teach the children about other cultures and religions and what better way to do it than through some inviting activities that the children can get involved with.
We introduced Rangoli patterns through a sensory tuff tray in Preschool. They used different coloured rice to create some beautiful patterns. Aswell as some Mendi hand painting made with face paint.

In the baby room they enjoyed some Rangoli colouring, allowing the children to cooperate using their fine motor skills. They then enjoyed a mini light festival using their beautiful projector and light cubes to spark their senses.

🎆BONFIRE NIGHT🎆
The children were all extremely excited about firework night! And enjoyed all of the creative activities set out for them allowing to get even more involved.

Preschool created some wonderful bonfire rockets, that they decorated with lots of bright colours and sparkles! Alongside this, was a barbie bonfire and a bonfire tuff tray.

The Babies and 2-3s made some eye catching firework and bonfire pictures using mixed materials to create the sensory aspect.
And as a super yummy treat 2-3s made some edible sparklers. Of course the children absolutely loved this, and loved eating them just as much☺️.

Thankyou so much to everyone who came to Afternoon Tea this week and those of you who purchased scones and donated cakes! It was such an honour to host you all and the children just loved tucking into all the goodies with their mummy’s and daddy’s.
Seeing everyone laugh and getting to know each other was such a highlight of the week and we will do it all again at Christmas!

I will reveal the amount raised for Macmillan on Monday which I’m sure will be greatly received.

Have a lovely weekend.

In our two to threes room this week, the staff have reintroduced yoga which is a big favourite with the children !!! They all sit on their mats and can confidently complete each yoga move including meditating monkeys, the mermaid pose and down wood dog.

Did you know that there are many benefits for children who do yoga, these include :

⭐️ helping children to manage anxiety
⭐️ improving children’s emotional regulation
⭐️ boosting children’s self-esteem
⭐️ increasing children’s body awareness and mindfulness
⭐️ enhancing children’s concentration and memory

This week in preschool the children were talking about bar codes (a spark of interest that we tuned into, practitioners have big ears 😉) so we went for a little walk to our local shop and the children had great fun scanning items at the till!! The most exciting item they found was an avocado which went home with this little one as he was so excited with his purchase.

Today, Holly had made a special game where the children could throw bean bags through the avocados tummy and they all got to try it on and dance about 😂 🥑 Next week we shall be making an avocado cheesecake, yummy!!

⭐️ Caterpillars Weekly News Bulletin!! ⭐️

With the new Early Years Framework due to start this September 2021, there is a renewed emphasis on Oral Health and how we as a setting encourage good oral health within the nursery. Therefore, as well as promoting good eating habits, we have purchased a number of resources for each room which the staff can use to talk about what our teeth do and why we need to keep them healthy.

In the near future, we are also hoping to have a local dentist visit our children so the children can ask questions and feel more confident about having their teeth checked.
