Welcome to the world Flynn Jaxson who arrived on Friday weighing a tiny 5lb 5oz, just in time for Christmas.

Congratulations to Laney, Aaron & Aria. Thank goodness he didn't arrive during the Nativity, although I think there is a film about that โ˜บ๏ธ

We all send lots of love and can't wait for cuddles ๐Ÿ’™
Poppies had their annual Christmas meal on Saturday. We had a really high turnout this year and as you can see we scrub up pretty well. Those who did not attend were missed.

Thank you to the parents who made a donation so that we could have a Christmas cocktail, it was really thoughtful and very much appreciated.

This team right here is what makes Poppies the nursery it is and without them we simply couldn't function. We really appreciate them giving their all for Poppies and the children and families we care for.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our families ๐ŸŽ„

Our Ladybird room made the most of the lovely weather and had a little walk over to the Perham Down rugby pitches this morning.

As you can see they enjoyed running around, following the white lines, looking for the Gruffalo, watching the clouds and drawing the tree's. How on earth did they cram so much in? Hopefully they will sleep well tonight ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Children at Poppies Perham have been really busy developing life skills and their fine-manipulative control. Pre-school have been making snack for all their friends in setting including carefully chopping fruit and sharing out equally. Our toddlers have been using big and small movements to make their mark, and our Snowdrops have been in the role-play kitchen and exploring the properties of sand and water.

Just a few pictures from our holiday club so far. The children have been so busy creating, and making things and going out and about in the local community, they even had a relaxing day doing each others nails and wearing face masks ๐Ÿ’…

Now that we have a glimmer of sunshine you might be thinking about enjoying a picnic and making the most of it. Young children have a real threat of choking on certain foods because of their size and the size of your child's windpipe. You can manage this risk by cutting up those foods which have a higher risk for your child.

If you are sending in a packed lunch for your child please ensure that the food is prepared ready for your child to eat, so chopping grapes, cherry tomatoes, large blueberries in half, slicing sausages down the middle etc

Staff are always sat with the children while they eat but putting these measures in place will severely reduce the risk of your child choking, thank you

Here is our small photo round up from Perham Down. As you can see the children have been very busy exploring both inside and outside with lots of fun sensory activities.

For all of those parents whose children are starting school next September now is the time to see if your preferred schools are doing open mornings and to checkout the Ofsted reports.


We would like to clarify that Poppies Daycare Nurseries are not closing. It is just unfortunately the Before & after school club and holiday club.
The holiday club is running up until 18th August as planned and the cottage will sadly be closed there after.
