🎀Wear it Pink🎀

We have had a lovely day raising money for breast cancer awareness today, the children and staff wore their best pink clothes and did some pink related activities throughout the week such as pink sensory trays, decorating and making pink bows, and pink hand prints.

The staff all baked buns, cakes and biscuits for the cake sale which everyone enjoyed.
The staff also enjoyed some yummy pink treats on their lunch today.

Our judges came in this morning to pick our winner, which was Terri-Ann with her home made whoopies. Terri-Ann won a £20 gift voucher.

We will post our grand total raised next week 🩷

🧪 Science Experiments with Marvellous Monkeys 🧪

The Marvellous Monkeys have been busy over the last couple of weeks looking at different science experiments. They have used things such as shaving foam, water and food colouring to watch how the food colouring falls through the shaving foam to create different shapes and patterns.
They have also mixed milk and fairy liquid using pipette's to watch closely at how different patterns form and used the pipettes to change the patterns.

The children also celebrated national friendship day by creating friendship bracelets to share with their friends.


🎉 Preschool graduation! 🎉

This week we had our Preschool graduation party, the children took turns to get their graduation certificate, get a photo and collect a book and a Cliff Hill bear to take with them.
We did lots of party games including, pass the parcel and musical statues. The children then finished off by having a lovely buffet.

We wish all our graduates the very best in their school journeys, we will miss you all! ⭐️


The Bouncing Bears have enjoyed exploring the shredded paper this morning. The children enjoyed watching the paper been sprinkled down over the tray and tried to catch it.
They also enjoyed exploring the textures on their hands by moving them around the tray to search for different under the sea themed objects.
The children found fish, seaweed, sharks and underwater plants.
Well done Bears! 🐻


Here at Cliff Hill the toothbrushing scheme has been very successful! 🦷

The practitioner's in our Pre - School Room have done a wonderful job of implementing toothbrushing into the daily nursery routine for all children and also expanding the children's knowledge on the importance of toothbrushing and healthy living.

The children have adapted wonderfully and have all enjoyed taking part in the scheme alongside their peers! 🦷🦷

We are very excited to get started in our toddler room! 🦷

✨well-being activity✨

For April’s staff well-being activity, we asked our staff to write down 3 positive words to describe their fellow practitioners.

We then made some lovely well-being word cards with a little keep safe for each of our staff members as a thank you for all their hard work so far this year.

Well done team! 🎊

🦷 World Oral Health Day 🦷

Over the last couple of months we have been working hard across the nursery to introduce oral hygiene and toothbrushing into our curriculum.

As of next week our Terrific Tigers will be brushing their teeth throughout the day at nursery. Over the next term we will also be introducing this into our Marvellous Monkeys room.

The children have been learning all about the importance of oral health through exploring new resources and taking part in age appropriate focused activities in each room. Some children have also been learning key words such as ‘decay’ ‘plaque’ ‘toothbrush’.

Keep your eyes pealed for updates over the next coming weeks! 🪥🪥


💗 Happy Mothers Day 💗

Wishing you all the best on this special day!

“Of all the gifts life has to offer, a loving Mother is one of the greatest of them all” 💝




We have been busy this morning across the nursery doing activities for Comic relief.
The Cheeky Chimps, Marvellous Monkeys and Terrific Tigers took part in a ’pin the nose on the face’ activity.
The Bouncing Bears have been getting creative doing lots of red nose crafts.

This week we have been celebrating St Patrick’s day and Comic Relief across the nursery!
Each room has been taking part in different activities such as a green themed tray, gluing and sticking red noses and creating their own shamrocks 🍀

Recently in the Bouncing Bears we have been exploring various parts of the ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’ story.

We have been exploring different tuff trays to represent water, mud, grass etc.
The children enjoyed exploring their senses within the different activities for example, using their feet in the ‘mud’ and water.
Well done Bears! 🐻

***Early years underfunding: an interactive explainer for parents and carers***

Imagine you run a sandwich shop.

Let's say it costs you £1 to make a sandwich and you charge customers £1.10 per sandwich to make a profit to reinvest into your business.

Now imagine that one day, the government announces that it's going to pay for two free sandwiches a week for all working adults (in a bid to win votes).

The problem is they are only willing to pay sandwich shops like you 50p per sandwich to meet this promise. That's 50p less than it costs you to make them and 60p less than you normally charge for them.

Over the course of a year, this could result in your business losing thousands of pounds.

What would you do?


Our interactive explainer is a great way to explain why to help parents and carers understand the problem with early years underfunding - and the impossible choices that settings are being left to make.
