Sensory bags for the under 2's. These will enable the children to develop their sense of touch and fine motor skills as they manipulate the small objects around the bags.
I have used flowers, dried orange slices, cinnamon sticks, fir cones and acorns, and shiny balls, but the list of objects that can be inside can endless!


We are opening our doors in October for you to come and visit our nursery and experience our wonderful learning environment.

Call on the number below to book in and make an appointment, so you can see for yourselves as well meet some of the team.

We look forward to welcoming you.

As summer fades away the outdoor environment and nature is still important to all childrens learning. At Haddenham we explore our garden space with all ages as much as we can and in all weathers. Preschool and toddlers were caught in the rain during the week but all the children had an adventure hiding under the tree until the rain subsided and they could run in.

Being outdoors supports children’s intellectual, emotional, social and physical development. Surrounding ourselves with nature,which throughout the seasons is every changing, stimulates all our senses. Not only does it enhance our motor skills like balance, coordination and physical health, it also supports childrens growing inquisitiveness as they explore, finding insects and snails hidden in the leaves and flowers. Social skills and confidence are developed as they cooperate with each other, communicating and learning together.

In our under 2's room we use treasure baskets to stimulate the babies curiousity and interest in the world around them as these create a fabulous learning opportunity. The babies can select their own objects to experiment, roll, squeeze, drop, examine and investigate. A treasure basket contains a variety of everyday objects for the babies to interact with and are safe for them to explore with ‘awe and wonder’, being excited and fully focussed on what they are doing. They can explore independently, supporting their interest as well as their senses. They offer different objects to feel, put in their mouth, smell and make noises with and offer varying textures and shapes to discover.

Just had to share what our amazing Baby Room Leader, Louise, has created for her play room.
It has proved to be very popular this morning!!!!
A great invitation to exploring trains, transport and natural life.

The children had a really special experience on Friday - Hannah from Zoolab came to see us! She was accompanied by a few friends including a snake and a tarantula! The children had the opportunity to really closely examine different animals and a few brave friends even stroked/held them. It was also great to welcome some parents to the session as well!

What a lovely way for us to learn about our natural world! The children showed lots of care and concern for them all and used great communication and turn taking skills 🐌🕷️🪲


To all our wonderful Mums and special ladies have a lovely day of memory making moments. (And have 5 mins fun with the word search below).

What an amazingbopen day we have had at Haddenham Day Nursery today.
We invited possible new families to a guided tour and chat about our provision, and the response was amazing.....
#"A warm and cosy place"
#"So calm and friendly"
#"Just wonderful"
#"We love the continuity between playrooms."
#"When can we start?"
#"Such professional, caring and passionate staff"


At Haddenham Day Nursery, we value our apprentices greatly, so today to acknowledge National Apprentice Week, we treated them to some goodies....
Both girls have been learning about and developing their communication and language skills with the children, with parents and with colleagues. They understand the importance of different styles of communication that they will use whilst being a practitioner and fulfilling the many roles within that.
Keep up the good work!


Our lovely apprentice, Millie, has qualified as Level 2 Early Years Practitioner. We are so proud of her and wish her all the very best for the future.

It's been a too cold to take our non-walkers out side to explore the ice and frost, so...... we brought the ice indoors!

We invited all parents to join their children for morning sessions this week to explore,investigate and be creative with festive resources .….some pics from our baby room all set up ready for parents and children to engage ….


Following the unexpected closure of the nursery on Tuesday morning due to water issues with Thames valley …we had an unexpected visitor in the afternoon who the children were very excited to see ….and they were all very polite with lovely manners thanking him for their present !!
Never a dull moment in the life of early years practice !!!!!!!!!!

When a water issue from Thames valley stopped us opening on Tuesday morning ..staff made good use of their time and re arranged the toddler room to create a more stimulating and inviting environment for the children’s learning and development …

I'm sure it will be a lot of fun......and nice and warm and cosy!!!!

To help support one of our Pre-Schoolers to prep for an hospital stay and operation we made a medical centre on the home corner. The children loved dressing up as hospital staff, taking x-rays and administrating lots of TLC.
We set up books and puppets to reflect varied occupations which included doctors and nursing staff.
The child's parents were very thankful for our help in making the experience less daunting.
Please let us know if there is a "first experience" that your child is due to under go and we will do all we can to support, eduacate and prepare for this.


We would like to share with you some of our video evidence that helped us achieve our "Curiosity Approach" accreditation. We are all very proud of our amazing out door learning environment.

A few images of our amazing playrooms ready for our Open Day today.


Whatever the weather, we believe in the importance of out door play and discovery.....

Photos from Haddenham Day Nursery - Aylesbury's post 19/10/2022

Babies have discovered the textures,colours ,sounds and sights of autumn ,through sensory play with pumpkins and leaves ,while posting confers through tubes of various sizes .
They have also explored the geeky books .


At our nurseries we strongly believe in "process over product" when it comes to craft and design projects.
Hope this helps to explain why.


Please join us for our open day and pop along to view our beautiful "Curiosity Approach" accredited nursery.


Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with the Queens family tonight


We congratulate one of our Apprentices : Megan, on the completion of her level 2 in childcare .
Megan had a tough time like many coping with the disruption of the covid pandemic ,but lives to share and celebrate her success,saying..
‘’ Thank you to the team for supporting me ‘’

We have been getting in touch with nature at nursery.
The under 2's room have grown tomatoes in their garden and have an amazing crop ready for ripening.
The Pre-Schoolers had a close encounter with a caterpillar. He fell out of tree to great delight of the children. We studied him closely before releasing him back in the flower bed to continue his amazing journey and transformation.

The Pre-School children had a good idea this afternoon......to make flapjacks!
We learnt how corn and oats grow, how they are harvested and then made into porridge oats, flour and corn Flakes.
We observed the affect of heat on butter and syrup and saw that it melted. After baking in the oven, it was decided that it would be good to have one flapjack after tea and take 2 home to share!
I think you will agree the end results look delicious.

Thank you The Curiosity Approach for the congratulations post, we are still all so very proud 🥰


We have been learning all about florists and flower arranging today.
Following on from a child's comment about Wedding flowers, we set up this provocation.
Fresh flowers, herbs,leaves plus a few other resources were set out along with colanders, scissors, straws and tape.
The children designed and made their own table decorations, posies and bouquets.
We talked about the parts of a flower, their scent and textures.
What followed was an array of weddings, parties, fairies and even "Wizard Lizard" (The baddy from "Superworm") role play scenarios.
The morning was full of design skills, descriptive language, understanding of occupations, development of fine motor skills and, of course, a hole lot of fun!!!!!

Our Pre-Schoolers have been investigating textures in the garden.
They discovered, lumps, bumps, smooth, knobbly and ridges.
They then made wax crayon rubbings to transfer the pattern onto paper.
Their favourite was the patterns and writing from the tyres
