This morning our babies did some nature autumn painting.
we got leaves and sticks from the garden. we let the children choose their own colour of paint, they pointed and tried to say the colour they wanted.

Our babies have been interested in bugs this week, finding bugs in the garden. so we made a bug tuff tray and the teacher's hid different bugs in the tray and the children had to search for the bugs and told the teachers what bugs they found. They found lady birds and spiders.
This also extended the children's fine motor sticks, and art and design skills by with picking up the sticks and seeing the different marks they make with leaves and sticks and shovels.
Does your child like having the freedom to explore and learn through play?

Our pre-schools and 2-3 children wanted to do some painting with sticks and leaves.
The teachers took them to the garden to choose there own resources to paint with, some chose big leave, small leave, skinny sticks, and long sticks. the children then chose their colours of paint and began making there own garden pictures.

When creating our environments alongside our nursery teams we consider children’s learning through play, exploring the world around them and follow children’s natural curiosity and wonder to investigate.
At All About Children, Michelle Kendall our Director of Childcare and the team of Childcare Managers work alongside the nursery teams to create beautiful environments for our children to engage with, learn in, grow in and have lots of fun along their journey with us. Being conscientious and thoughtful in our approach to what children need, alongside a best practice approach to environments, guides us and empowers our teams to be creative and make the very best of their individual settings. The teams at All About Children achieve such high-quality environments and of the way that children so independently navigate their spaces whilst learning skills and strengthening independence that prepares them well, for their next stage of learning.

Here are some ways you can support your baby👶🏿👶🏼
In pre school we have been talking about being active, and how it makes us feel. We have been stretching our bodies and balancing. Our teachers extended our learning in the garden, and our teachers let us create our own obstacle courses. We used tyres, planks of wood, plastic boards, and logs. once we build our obstacle courses, we were able to try them out and using our balancing skills to get a cross, and we also are developing our turn taking skills and giving our friends support when crossing the course.
our pre-schools are becoming very independent, we are working on being able to complete tasks themselves. this morning we tried to put our coats on without help, This is all support us in our transitions to school.
Our babies celebrated moon day today, they spoke about when they see the moon, and told the babies that the moons comes out a night and changes shapes, the children looked out the window to see if they could see the moon.
the teachers then printed some real life pictures of the moon and created their own moon pictures, they wanted to use pomp, pomp's to support with their pictures.
We love to hear feed back from our parents every day.

Our pre schoolers enjoyed a bug hunt. They spoke about what bug live outside and what they think they will see. The children told their teachers they are going to look for 'spiders, worms, snails'. The children went and turn over logs, looked under leaves, and looked by the trees. They found lots of wiggly worms, they then have a look at the worms and we spoke about how they move and what their purpose is.

we were lucky enough to receive Level 1 and Level 2certificates from the RHS campaign for school gardening, we are currently working towards getting our level 3 certificate.
This afternoon the children wanted to do some painting. The children chose their own colours, squeezed them into the pots, and using their imagination to create their own pictures some chose to make dinosaurs, flowers, swirls and their mummies.
