Huge thanks to Nicola Withers for the generous donation from Tiggy’s to the Disasters Emergency Committee towards the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

The UK government has currently agreed to double donations through its match-funding scheme, so well worth giving through this charity.

“In these times, more than ever before, our hope is that education will offer an aid to better the condition of the world”. Maria Montessori
Please spread the news Moonstruck Astronaut's LAMDA group acting classes for 10- 15 year olds are back up and running for a 2nd year! Thanks very much, Hannah de Q (mum of Barnaby who's just started at Tiggy's!)
So this happened last week
The yellow book is so well loved ❤️
Someone was asking about the picture of the 3 children doing hand painting that Kate had to advertise tiggy's ive found my copy if they want to have a copy Judi Clayton
Just over a year ago possibly one of your shyest ever girls left tiggys, this week she got voted on to the school council after writing and giving a speech in front of the school. A few months ago child number two left tiggys after finally allowing me to leave in the morning and last week she was awarded star of the week. One very proud mommy and daddy....... And very apriciative of the excellent foundations tiggys have given them!
Two years today :(
Miss you Tiggys ###
1st morning a success she loved it..... x
All smart. He was very excited to go today.
Looking lovely in the early morning sunshine
Why oh whyyyy did you trust ME with a sunflower!!!!! I can look after children but NOT plants!!!! I think I've killed it!!! :(

🇬🇧👑🇬🇧👑We had a Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea for everyone at Tiggy’s 🇬🇧👑🇬🇧👑
A fabulous turnout - 42 of our 51 families came along for cakes we had decorated and to watch our jubilee dance that we had practised. There were flags & hats for everyone too!

Thanks so much to all our wonderful families for supporting our little tea party. It was just like the old (pre-Covid) days with the nursery full with you all ❤️ lovely to see so many of you and be able to chat & mingle.
Have a great half term and enjoy whatever Jubilee celebrations you are having!

It’s been a week of lots of collaborative play, constructing dens, tracks and discussing poorly babies.
Lovely to see our youngest children refining their Montessori practical life skills - pouring, peeling, using tongs and spreading at snack time.

We’re sponsoring the child wristbands again and looking forward to entering the painting competition 🎨

We owe a lot to our sponsors for making The Newport Show a great family day event so we would like to say a big thank you to all our great sponsors this year.

We finally got back to Forest School this week🥳 and are now having our lunch there to give us more time to play. The Monday group had beautiful sunshine but the Wednesday group had rain! Thankfully it stopped and left some impressive puddles that simply had to be jumped and played in!

More trips to the woods, learning about Eid, planting and getting crafty - it’s what we do at Tiggy’s!

We’re back from our Easter holidays!!
We made the most of the warm weather this week to get everyone out & about around the the rugby club grounds and adjacent woods. We are so lucky to have all this on our doorstep ❤️
Fresh air + exercise = happy, healthy children.


For anyone free on a Thursday morning…

🐣 Happy Easter from everyone at Tiggy’s ❤️Thank you Carpet Loom & Newport Beds Ltd for a lovely display of our decorated eggs!

Photos from Tiggy's Montessori Nursery's post 10/04/2022

We’ve had an ‘egg’cellent last week of term 🐣
Every child painted an egg which are now on display in a High Street shop.....but which one?? Please have a look and find them as they are looking splendid.
At Forest School the two groups had an egg hunt with 40 to find around the site - expertly hidden by our nursery bear, who left a note that we read on arrival. If we found them all, everyone got a chocolate egg!
There was also time during a busy week for a chance to run off some of our energy on the Rugby pitch.
We’re all having a couple of weeks off now 😅 much needed for the staff as 60% of us have had Covid19 since the start of February ..... After 2 years it’s finally got us with just 2 staff yet to have it 🤞

March is always 📚Book Month 📚 at Tiggy’s - a day just isn’t long enough - and we finished with the Gruffalo at Forest School finding a log pile, underground and treetop house for 🐍 🦊 🦉.
We were thrilled to be able to have parents back in to read as this was rudely interrupted by Covid19 in 2020 and unable to happen in 2021.


A special message from us to all our current and ex-Tiggy’s families for the recommendations plus all the new families who are joining us in September or January.

We will now be starting a wait list for children born on/after 01/09/2019 in case any spaces become available before September 2023.

We hope Mummys everywhere have had a lovely day 💕
Our older children made seed bombs at Forest School, carefully wrote their name on the label of their Mother’s Day present and explained why they love Mummy ❤️
The younger children took inspiration from the nearby cherry trees to use their finger tips to create a blossom picture 🌸

Another busy week! We had 3 one week old lambs come to visit and we fed them their breakfast.
It was all about volcanoes 🌋 and a hands on experiment for our older children and everyone during ballet when we took off our shoes and socks for a sensory experience on the newspaper.
Our request to parents for donations to go to the Polish border for Ukrainian refugees resulted in a fabulous collection ❤️🇺🇦 Jo took it all on Friday to Stoke and it’s probably on its way across Europe now. We just managed to get it all in her car. Once again, amazing support from our Tiggy’s families - we can’t thank you enough for your generosity 👏
We are relieved to get the staff toilet back though as that’s where we stored it!

We are showing our support for Ukraine by collecting for Ukrainian refugees. If anyone would like to donate, the following are needed:

✅Essential toiletries
✅Packet foods

Jo has a relative taking a container out to Poland next week that will deliver much needed aid directly to Ukrainian refugees (he’s there at the moment having taken one this weekend).

Please drop items off with us by midday on Thursday 10th March. Thank you!

We’re back after our half term hols, just in time to make scotch pancakes on Tuesday for our snack! On Wednesday we explored the woods and for World Book Day on Thursday we created our own reading train, had a favourite story of Nicola’s and dressed up completely unrelated to WBD (we save that ordeal for school 😂) Our Book month starts next week......👏

We always provide lots of activities to help develop upper body strength - back, shoulders and arms so their muscles can then support wrists, hands and fingers to mark make and eventually write. It’s part of our Montessori Practical Life curriculum using real items - whisking and scrubbing in action this week ✅
Our older children continued their solar system journey by making their own planet 🌏 🪐
It was too windy for Forest School so the Wednesday group had a trip out and discovered water 💦 which required closer inspection 😂.
There was a treat for the staff as a thank you for all their hard work during our Covid19 affected start to 2022.
Some of the staff are off on their hols - London, Lincolnshire, Lake District and even Colorado 🇺🇸 ⛷ - whatever you’re doing, have a happy half term everyone!

Well - that wasn’t the week we were expecting at Tiggy’s HQ! 😫 Our usually fit & very healthy staff team were hit by various illnesses but as we always overstaff the nursery to provide our Montessori care & education (no minimum ratios here!) there were still enough left standing to carry on pretty much as normal 👍 apart from being able to go to Forest School - so it was off out round the Rugby Club grounds instead.
Just shows the importance of our regular lateral flow testing.... and yes 😂 it was the boss who tested positive on Monday morning!
Huge thanks ❤️ to Team Tiggy’s for keeping it all going and for sending photos of what they were up to - looks like a good week!

We started looking at Asia which led us to China and the New Year. A great week of lanterns, kites, dressing up, dragon 🐉 dancing & Chinese ballet, lucky red envelopes 🧧 and making & eating stir fry with chopsticks 🥢

50 bird seed cakes made and we’re ready for the Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend! Happy Twitching 😀

We’ve had lots of hibernating animals in nursery this week and we developed our skills further by making larger dens & shelters at Forest School.

Having an extended period of time & space for child initiated play enables children to be imaginative & creative, which often leads to some interesting constructions ….. and a few reminders about our Montessori ‘cycle of activity’ ! (Return everything to the correct shelves/baskets when finished)

We had a special welcome 🦢🦢on our return to Forest School this week and the resident robin came to say hello too!

Our baking used up bits & bobs left over from our Christmas cakes as well as some overripe bananas found in the kitchen for some fruity vegan flapjacks. Everyone from the oldest to the youngest helps if they want to👩‍🍳🧑‍🍳

We’re looking at hibernation for the next few weeks to give plenty of opportunity to explore & learn - the older children, after finding out about which animals hibernate, made their own dens for them. Can you spot who is sleeping? 🦔🐞🐍🐭

Happy New Year! We’re back!
3 days of catching up with friends, ice exploration, developing our fine motor skills, making predictions and geometry.
Best of all, our staff lateral flow test kits arrived 😂.
So here’s to whatever 2022 has got in store for us all 😉 after the last two strange years, who knows🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏼🙆🏾‍♂️

We had a wonderful Christmas celebration with our older children today. A small audience, altered layout with Covid19 protocols in place including our Government supplied carbon dioxide monitor 😜, enabled the show to go on! - a lovely end to the autumn term and 2021 which has been another ‘strange & challenging’ year …. but throughout, the children have been brilliant and our families so very kind and supportive ❤️ which makes our job that much easier.

From everyone at Tiggy’s, have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year xx 🎄

🎄Final day of our festive fundraising and final rehearsal for our Christmas celebration tomorrow plus we had 3 birthdays 🎉 We raised £140 which has been split between Save the Children & The Alzheimer’s Society. Thanks to our lovely parents!

🎄Christmas🎄arrived this week with our child decorated tree that takes on many re-incarnations throughout the week. Christmas stories are here and we even tinselled our pumpkin😂
Our final Forest School visit of the year was cancelled due to a fallen tree at the site but we all got to have the hot chocolate and chocolates that Michelle had very kindly provided for both groups 🤩
Today was Christmas Jumper Day - this year, the first of 5 days of our festive outfits, raising money for Save the Children and the Alzheimer’s Society.

We had a Tuesday afternoon run around the rugby fields - think this may have been more for the staff who had filled up on cake earlier in the day 😂.
Beginning of December means only one thing - our annual Christmas cake making.
Our nursery bear, Brown Bear, who has been with us since 2008 😱 was back from another exciting home visit. He took time out for a ‘spa’ day (washing machine 🤫 but don’t tell the little people…) and had a wardrobe sort out. We’d forgotten how many lovely clothes have been made for him over the years by our families - this is just a selection being packed back into his suitcase for his next adventure!

Another fabulous Newport foodbank collection which ran alongside our Children In Need fundraising. The Wednesday afternoon children had lots of sorting practice packing it all up ready to be delivered 👍

Thanks to all our fabulous families for helping us raise a terrific £376, which we will round up to £400, for Children In Need.

Another busy day in our Pudsey shop today! So far, our fabulous little people have raised over £350 🎉😍 As we have had a few off poorly, the shop will be staying open for a couple more days next week as those parents also missed out on the shop last year due to Covid-19 restrictions. A huge thank you to our amazing families for your support ❤️
