🦷National Toothache day🦷
Today activities were set up around the nursery promoting toothbrushing, using props and stories. The children were educated around the reasons for teeth brushing, and the types of foods and drinks that may cause toothache. The children also participated in toothbrushing using their own individual bamboo toothbrushes. The children used mirrors to look into to so that they could ensure they brushed all their teeth to make them clean and shiny.

A firm interest in the Explorers and Investigators room has been based around vehicles, with this in mind Lotty used the car mat as a base for the children's play, introducing car garages, and the large Tonka trucks to enhance the children's transporting scheme.
To enhance the children's play the staff then set up a car washing station to wash the cars and trucks, ensuring they were all sparkly and clean.

🌟 Exciting Visit for National Apprenticeship Week 🌟

We were delighted to welcome David Johnston OBE MP, Minister for Children, Families, and Wellbeing, along with Alan Mak, MP of Havant, to Tops Havant, one of our sister nurseries, as part of National Apprenticeship Week!

During their visit, Mr. Johnston and Mr. Mak had the opportunity to meet our dedicated apprentices and witness firsthand the incredible work they do to support our nurseries, like Tops Havant. From nurturing young minds to fostering a vibrant learning environment, our apprentices play a crucial role in shaping the future.

We were also fortunate to discuss the upcoming changes in funding set to take place from April, and both MPs were keen to hear about our experiences and insights.

A heartfelt thank you to David Johnston OBE MP and Alan Mak for taking the time to visit and recognize the importance of apprenticeships in our community as well as listening to our thoughts about the new funding.
