📚Our Monday trip to the library was fun! The children enjoyed listening to a story, colouring in and pointing out pictures in the books!
Why we love libraries:
📒 Provides a great learning environment
📒 Promotes language and discussion
📒 Ignites a passion for reading
📒 Makes reading fun and interactive
A glorious day out last week to feed the ducks 🦆 The girls really enjoyed themselves and had a beautiful day ☀️
A wonderful day yesterday in the sun 🤩
A day out in Gillingham to start our week here at Gleaming Stars 🤩🏞 We enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and had our lunches out today!
An afternoon in the garden 🥰
We all love snack time 🧃🍎🍌🥐🧀
Teaching the children to sit together at the table to eat can be a challenging process when they are this young. However when one child sits down, it inspires others to join in too. It’s important to teach them good habits now before they start big school.
This cheeky bunch are doing wonderfully well 😊
Boys bonding 😄🤗👬
A lovely morning at playgroup to start our weeks. The children enjoyed a variety of resources: water, sand, construction area, arts, soft play, sensory and pretend play. 🤩🖍🥁🎨🧩⚽️🏀
🇬🇧 👑 Coronation Tea Party Celebrations!! 👑 🇬🇧
A wonderful end to our weeks today with a tea party to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III. The children had fun blowing balloons, helping with the preps and then indulging in some party food and music 🥳
This week we welcomed a new friend to our cozy little setting. Ed had been brave boy staying away from his parents and has done well settling in and has started making new friends 😊
Early on in the week we did a variety of activities.
The children always love music time as they get to make lots of noise and try different instruments 🎹🥁🎺🪘🪕
Friday vibes today. 😎😄

🐣 Our term time only children took home their Easter goody bags from us today. Wishing those who we won’t see over Easter a wonderful Easter break with their families 🏻 We will see you soon 🤩
Happy Monday folks!! We spent our mid day at the Riverside park today, enjoyed feeding the ducks and throwing stones into the water 🤩
“Look look they are wriggling around!!!” The children screamed with excitement 🏻🤩
2 weeks ago we started our live butterfly growth lifecycle at Gleaming Stars! The children are enjoying seeing the stages of the lifecycle. 🐛
We started off with eggs and tiny baby caterpillars. They have seen the baby caterpillars grow in size and start to move around their jars over the past fortnight.
We will be sharing our journey with you all 🤩
A Thursday morning .. 😄
The children did very well during this activity. They had to dress the shirts matching the colour on the cards ensuring that the correct colours were used in the correct order. This activity required hand and eye coordination, colour recognition, patience and a steady hand. A job well done 💯😃
Off to the library in the afternoon to play and do some reading 📚 As adults in a modern world we don’t use libraries often which is a shame. Going to libraries are great for pre schoolers and provide many benefits some of which are listed below:
✅ Offers a change of environment for them
✅ Encourages group reading
✅ Promotes better use of vocabulary
✅ Creates an early love for reading and imaginative thinking
✅ Teaches children to be quiet in an educational setting
✅ Sets a solid foundation before starting reception
Yesterday we took a visit to woodlands park.. lovely bit of fresh air and fun 😊
Celebrating St Patrick’s day today with our tots! 😍💚💚💚
Enjoying some fresh, spring weather today at our local park. The children are running around and working up their appetites for lunch!! 🥗🧀🥕🧈🥖🍞
We love it when we see the children forming bonds. Since our youngest tot has joined us he has really taken to the others and especially to Maisie 🤩
For babies and young toddlers this home based interaction with older toddlers is crucial to their development in so many ways. We’ve already seen Oli improve on his social skills massively.
His confidence around others is a world apart from when he first came to us a couple of months ago, he was shy and wouldn’t want to be near other children 🤩 Well done to the elder tots for being so welcoming and caring 👏🏼⭐️
Yesterday we enjoyed being invited to another setting, the children had fun playing with different toys, being in a new environment and making new friends 🤩
Happy Monday wonderful people!! We can’t wait to see what this week brings 😃🤩
Wonderful day spent at the childcare expo today, exploring new resources for the spring/summer terms, networking with other childcare providers, bouncing ideas off of one another and attending lectures. Really looking forward to using some of our new resources over the next few weeks with the children 🤩❤️
Friday at Gleaming Stars can only mean one thing …!
DISCO TIME!!! We had so much fun setting up our disco, choosing our songs, setting up all the props and changing our lights!
We danced most of the afternoon and learnt some new moves 💃🏽✌🏽😎🤩 Perfect way to end our week!
An outing to our local leisure Centre today with the children 🤩
Some fun with Indoor Hopscotch!! 👣👣👣
