High Ercall Day Nursery and Holiday Club
We provide nursery childcare for children 3months +

Operating as usual


Monday 17th October our preschool children will be going over to the church along with High Ercall primary school to celebrate the Harvest Festival. We will be leaving at 10.45am and returning for lunch.


Happy 30th birthday to Leah the children enjoyed opening up her gifts for her this morning! ❤️


I’m sure many of you are getting ready for back to school or maybe for the first time!

We love this brilliant idea which was shared by our lovely neighbours Mini First Aid Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire & Lichfield but was originally shared via The Motherload. 💚

If your little one is feeling nervous or worried why not try a Hug Button? Draw a heart on both yours and your child's wrist (there is always so much handwashing!), charge it up by touching hearts and tell them that if they feel sad or miss you while at school, to press the hug button and it will send you a hug - likewise, you can send your little one a big squeeze by touching the heart on your own wrist!


Good luck to all our little ones starting school tomorrow we will be thinking of you all 🥰



We are very proud to share with you all our latest Ofsted inspection! We received our first ever Ofsted inspection since opening in 2017 just before we broke up for summer and we are over the moon to say that we were graded as " good in all areas" this is down to staff and our lovely children and the wonderful support we receive from our parents ! The staff have worked incredibly hard to achieve this result and on one of the hottest days of this year too!

Well done everyone!
Leah & Jenna

There are some lovely ideas on here to keep you busy with you little ones this summer ☀️


It’s getting hot hot HOT 🥵

🌞 In very hot weather it is especially important the under 5's get plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.

🤒 It is quite common for young babies and children to become dehydrated and it can become serious if it's not dealt with quickly.

🏥 Take your baby or child to the GP urgently or go to A&E if they show the signs and symptoms shown here in the image.

✅Carry on breastfeeding or using formula - try to give small amounts more often than usual.

✅For babies on formula or solid foods – give them small sips of extra water.

✅Give young children their usual diet.

✅Give regular small sips of rehydration solution to replace lost fluids, salts and sugars – ask your pharmacist to recommend one.

❌Do not make formula weaker

❌Do not give young children fruit juice or fizzy drinks, it makes things like diarrhoea or vomiting worse.

We was very lucky to join the school this morning whilst they had a visit from a helicopter for careers week..

The children loved sitting inside and having a look around!

We have very happy children today 🙂


Knowing how to prevent an accident is just as important as knowing what to do should it happen… and preparing food is a great example of this!

Round slices of banana and whole grapes are the perfect choking size - they can easily block the entire space of the windpipe.

But chop them into long pieces, and all of a sudden you've hugely increased their chances of being able to manage if something did get stuck!

We have some good news! Ben has now finished all exams at uni this year and will be returning to High Ercall just for the summer until his next year begins!

We are very lucky that Ben is able to return and is fantastic with the children. His first day back will be Monday 16th May and he will then finish around the beginning of September to prepare for his return to Uni!

Welcome back Ben! ☺️


Just a quick reminder that this weekend is a bank holiday so we will be closed on Monday 2nd May and reopen as normal Tuesday 3rd may .

Enjoy your long weekend and this lovely sunshine 🌞

The High Ercall Team.


The mangetout the children planted a few weeks ago have sprouted!


We are so lucky to be based in a rural area with such beautiful surroundings for the children to be free and explore.
This was taken on a visit to the local church this morning.


Wanted - single or double push chair?

Does anyone have a spare one that we can have to allow us to take some of the younger ones on outing with us.

Many thanks

Here at High Ercall we have a weekly session with Vicki from hartbeeps.

The children have enjoyed using their listening and attention skills to go on a sound hunt, we got involved in a sorting game finding sizes such as small medium and large.
We also sang lots of fun song/rhymes supported by props and puppets and sensory products and twinkly lights. The children really look forwards to this session each week we have so much fun.

What is the Curiousity Approach ?

The Curiosity Approach aims to create ‘thinkers & doers’ by putting the child at the centre of their own development and education. Modern toys and technology are removed from the learning environment and replaced with everyday items to encourage children’s natural curiosity and eagerness to explore and create.

If you would like to explore some more information around the Curiousity Approach then please visit the link below.

Buddy has been up to no good again!


Due to the recent government changes we are asking parents if they could again kindly wear face masks when on the school grounds and on pick up/collection times.

Please remain vigilant with child illness and please keep us updated of any test results.

We really appreciate your guidance and patience during the pandemic.

We are open for October Half Term Monday 25th till Friday 29th, 8am till 6pm! We have lots of fun activities and events planned and cant wait to see lots of you 🙂

Leah and Jenna 🙂


Reflection time ( re share )

Last week in our Curiosity Approach Academy we shared this image & asked our members to reflect on practice.

To be mindful and consciously aware !

This is what we wrote

“Many of you have worked so hard to adopt ‘in the moment’ planning
To go with the flow of children’s thinking and ideas. To step away from a ‘planned topic’ for the month.

As the seasons change look to nature as your guide for invitations to play. For experiences and opportunities to explore.

Be careful NOT to get sucked back into, the THEME or topic of Halloween.

Filling our environments with plastic from the £1 shop.
Adding spiders and cobwebs to children’s play spaces. Plastic trick or treat lanterns.

Autumn is golden leaves and falling seeds, it’s not the TOPIC of Halloween.
