We had another busy day today, we went for a walk and to the playground..
The children showed a great understanding of a road safety; everyone walked very well, stoping at the end of a path to look both ways and to let us know if there were any cars approaching.

Once at the park, the children have all great fun, chasing each other, climbing, playing on the roundabout.

Safe to say, we are all worn out and enjoying a well deserve rest now!

The children voted on where to go today, we had a few choices available, which included: library, museum, art centre, park, train station and park. The library was the winner.
We took a bus to town and we went on a day trip, the children has enjoyed looking at traffic lights, building, bus stops, church and medical centre during our bus journey. At the bus station, the children has noticed that bussess comes in all sort of colours, some are bigger then other too. We counted and try to work out number/ letters on the busses number plates.
At the library, we have been greeted with a lovely lady, who gave us some drownings and explained, that we need to be using our inside voices, which the children knew already. We looked and read different books and the children behaved outstanding!
After these, we went to WH Smith, to surprise one of our lovely mummies who works there. πŸ’“
At the end, we've asked children if they would like us to get them a new stickers or a treats for being a super stars. The children decided, that cookies would be ideal so we let children pick the shop and find the cookies they wanted.
At the end the children paid for the cookies and they had a chat with a lady at the till. She explained very well, what her job was and what sorts of things this particular shop was selling. The children were very well mannered, said thank you and goodbye to the lady.
Then we went out, walk to the bus station and we had our treats there before our buss arrived.



Just a quick reminder to our term time only children. Week commencing 24.10.2022 half term starts!

Have a lovely time with your families and we will be here ready to welcome you all back on Monday 31.10.2022.

As a parent of a young child, you can request time of work for dependants, to look after your little one at home under the current government guidance, to help us keep our setting infection free.

If your child become ill under our care, we will notify you. It is important that you arrive swiftly to collect your poorly child to avoid passing to other children and myself or Katie. Please also make sure that emergency contact details are up to date.

* Fever 38 Β°C and over
* Undiagnosed rashes
* Constant runny noses with yellow/ green tint.

So today we've decided to bake! We got our children ready, and we went to the shop to get all baking ingredients ready. We didn't know what we wanted to bake, so we got some different things too.

Some of our children were able to hand a cash to a lovely lady on the register, and they all did great job in picking ingredients up and decide how they want to use them.

At home, we used our listening ears to listen to Diana and Katie, we used our gross motor skills to cut the dough with shapes cutters and we enjoyed mixing mixture and then icing together.

I am sure that all of our parents agree, that the children did marvelous job and their biscuits looked scrumptious!! πŸͺ
Then we went for a walk in our neighborhood!

I have attached some other pictures from this week too. The children have been enjoying cutting and sticking activity.

The benefits of baking with children include:

* promoting problem solving
* developing fine and gross motor skills
* encouraging following instructions
* gaining literacy and numeracy knowledge by finding ingredients and looking at measurements
* building confidence and esteem by seeing finished product
* exploring new flavours and tastes.

We have been very quiet here as we are still settling in new children but happy to report, that all of our children are superstars and they have been so helpful and nice to each other! We can see some lovely friendships forming, and the children are getting on well with our route.

The new term started very busy, so far we went to the pet shop, to the book shop and to the fields to play football and practice our kicking and throwing skills. We looked at the books, we did puzzles, we explored the signs of autumn! The children have been bringing home examples of their work and even some homeworks!😁

We would appreciate if parents this term can look with their children at different colours, shapes, body parts and animals, so that the children can make themselves familiar with all the words that we are using here as this will help them to extend their learning. If you are struggling with anything at home, please talk to myself and Katie and we will suport you.

Please keep an eye on your emails, we will be sending information soon regarding parents evening that will be held soon.



As the weather is very unpredictable right now, please could we ask the parents to make sure that they children come to us each day with: jacket, a water bottle, spare clothes, short sleeve t-shirt and a jumper in their bagπŸ˜….

Thank you for your support and we hope that you do understand that your child's wellbeing is our number one priority and we want them to be all ready for the day with us, no matter the weather❀️

As our older children will be leaving us soon for the school, I wanted to forward a "school radiness" checklist to our parents.

Please work alongside us and practice these important skills with your children at home before September.

We have been preparing the children for the school since their very first day with us, but the parents are also important in this process as they are their children's first teachers.

Please talk to your children about the school, what the day would possibly look like, about the teachers ( some of the children should meet their new teachers soon) will be like. Talk about the feelings, any worries that they may have.

Support your child understanding of this transition, as this is a big step forward for your child. New schools, teachers, friends, routine.

There is a lot of books available online about starting schools that you can share with your child as well to help them during this time.

If you have any questions or you are not quite sure about something, please talk to me.

Thank you

Making a playdough kind of day.

This activity supported children's muscle strength and fine motor skills, which the children will need when they are all ready to write.

We used our mathematical knowledge! Great counting, messuing and mixing! "More", "less" ,"tiny" etc.

The children used good words to describe the dough's texture e.g " sticky", "soft", "smooth", "spongy" and "mushy".

And of course the patterns! So much to talk about!

I think you all agree that the children did an astonishing job! πŸ‘ πŸ‘

We had a very busy week this week. The children have been exploring musical instruments and making their own. We looked at numbers, shapes and letters and we dance to music from different countries.

We also went for a walk in our neiberhood. On the walk we learnt road safety. We looked at the road markings and signs for pedestrians and cars. Then we went the Leakside to feed the ducks and catch the bubbles.

We will be back on Tueaday for even more fun. Have a great Bank Holiday weekend 😎 πŸ˜€

" Although I am not their mummy, I care for them each day.
I cuddle, sing and read to them and watch them as they play.
I see each new accomplishment, and help them grow and learn.
I understand their language and listean with concern.
They come to me for comfort, and I kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to me and I give the loudest cheers.
I am not their mummy, but my role is just as strong,
I nurture them and keep them safe, through may not be for long.
I know someday the time may come we will have to part.
But I know each child I care for is forever in my heart" ❀️ πŸ’™ πŸ’œ

The weather was so beautiful that we couldn't stay in today and we decided to go for a spring walk and than we went to feed ducks!

First we walked to the petshop to get a bird feed and than we took a slow walk to the leakside.
We have seen so many ducks, we've noticed that some of them were blue, some gray and some were even green! We fed them all, had a little picnic ourselves and than we walked back.

The girls has noticed different plants/flowers/bulbs in the shop next to the leak, so we went in and we got some plants and bulbs as well for our garden! 🌼 🌸 🌻


And just like that...We are spring ready :)

We had another lovely and very busy day today! We went to a per shop today, and we learnt a lot about different pets, what they eat, where do they sleep, how big they grow etc. I think our favorites were fishes and bunnies!

The children walked very well, holding our hands/pram, and looking left and right before we cross the roads.

Photos from Wise Childcare Scunthorpe's post 07/03/2022

We went for a walk in our neighbourhood today to look for the signs of spring.
We have seen lots of flowers blooming, lovely trees and bushes and some very interesting birds ( we weren't sure what they were, but we listean to they singing). πŸ˜…

The children showed great listening and understanding skills, and they have enjoyed the walk. The older children encouraged the younger ones to walk and explore too! πŸ‘Œ

After that, we went to our favorite place - a playground! Lots of physical skills used here, such as: running, climbing, skipping and turn taking. After all, there was only so many swings and climbing frames we could use!

We had a lovely time on Thursday and Friday with the children.
On Thursday it was a "donut day" so we made our own paper donuts and we had some yummy milka cakes from Amelia's mummy! (Thank you!)

We've made angel delight (nope, we didn't tried it at all!!πŸ˜…πŸ€­) which we later used as a mud for our toys animals! Lots of fun, great sensory activity for you to try at home!

Children leart where the milk come from, how to use measuring jugs and how to mix using forks and whisks.πŸ‘Œ
Some good mathematical language there and amazing sharing skills!

We also made playdough creations and painting.

Addtionally, we become interested in how to draw people, so we got busy with drawing "Bob".


Mixing mixing!

Please have a look at different benefits of drinking water in children. Please ensure that when you go out, during meals, during play your child have a drink available to them.

When you send your children to us, ensure that they have their own bottle of water with them, every time.
While the children are with us, they can access their water whenever they needed. We reminde them as well to stay hydrated during the day to suport their learning and understanding around healthy life choices.

We had a lovely day today, very busy and full of exploring. This morning we had a lovely visit - Nia's mummy came with her amazing pet - a ferret!! After all it was a pet day today!

We learnt a lot about what ferrets eat, where do they live and how big they get! Did you know, that ferrets eat hedgehog food and eggs and male ferrets are larger than females?
Everyone got a turn in stroking the ferret as well and all of the children showed great listening and understanding skills.
Thank you Misty 😊 πŸ’“

Here in the setting we have Bella the dog, Shelly and Bob the tortoises and two water turtles. We love our pets!

Later on, the children wanted to do painting so we painted the ice! We've noticed how cold it was and we wasn't very sure about it but we loved exploring and mixing the paint (sorry for messy chlotes!πŸ˜…).

I am wondering what tomorrow will bring


Please take extra care when coming to us today and tomorrow. There is a storm on the way, that will possibly affect your travel. Storm Eunice its expected to hit today and tomorrow, winds are set to hit speeds of 100mph.
The Met Office has issued a Red Warning for Storm Eunice, coming into force at 7am on Friday.

In the unlikely event that we can not open tomorrow I will notify you all

Stay safe everyone.

What a funny Friday, we've tried to make slime, it didn't worked it out as well as we wanted but we still managed to play with it. The girls truly enjoyed it. The mixing, pouring part was the best and of course exploring texture with our hands!πŸ˜…

Than my little beautis wanted to be hairdressers, so that what we've done as well. The girls put clips and brushed their hair! Even I got a lovely hair do!


πŸ€—Well done girls!πŸ˜€πŸ₯°


Another activity that we practiced today was wrapping the clear film around the table and exploring colours! As you can see, everyone has been very engaged!

Highly recomended if you want to try at home with your children to support their pre writing development and hand - eye coordination.

We found this activity to be great in suporting focus, persevarance, confident and communication too!

Once again! Who needs toys, when there is so many things that we can do! Right? β€πŸŽ¨πŸ–Ό

This morning we are looking at nature around us. The children asked a lots of questions about trees so we looked at how trees roots are different from the plants roots, how trees are growing so big and what animals may eat πŸƒ. Then we decided to pain trees and the girls did amazingly well!! Very proud childminder here.

Busy morning today! Looking at letters, numbers, and making a snowman art! Lots of fun!
We are using jolly phonics here, as this is what children's future schools are using. Please have a look at my link, you can practice with your child at home too to suport their phonetic learning.



Introduction to cuttingπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Photos from Wise Childcare Scunthorpe's post 26/01/2022

We've been very busy today! We went on the school run this morning and we had a look at the grounds, as the grass was "very white"!! This encouraged a lotssss of questions! πŸ˜…
We discovered the frost and it was " cold" and very "soft" to the touch but than once it was in our hands it become "hard like a snow".

Than we did some cutting (we practiced very hard and we listean to all instructions!) , we done playdough letters ( this one still our favorite!) and than we looked at "fun stones" and we learnt to follow patterns and copy what we could see on the cards. We counted our stones tool!

Today's activities suport our cognitive development, social and personal skills, school radiness. There was so much curiosity and engagement in this activities, that we haven't actually used any toys yet πŸ˜…. πŸ’–
