Our Small Street children had a special guest - a giant snail! One of our staff members brought it in for the children to learn about and care for.

The children were so excited to see the snail up close and they had so many questions. They learned about its habitat, what it eats, and how it moves. They also learned about the importance of caring for animals and how to treat them with respect.

The children took turns feeding the snail and helping to create a comfortable environment for it in its temporary home. They were so gentle and careful, making sure not to hurt the snail in any way.

It was such a wonderful learning experience for everyone involved...even the parents loved it!!

We believe that hands-on experiences like this are so important for children's development and we're grateful to our staff member for bringing in the giant snail.

Today at nursery, we had a wonderful celebration for the King's coronation. The children were very excited and enthusiastic about the festivities, and we had a great time together.

We decorated the nursery with colorful banners and balloons, and the children dressed up in their finest royal attire. We played games, danced, and sang songs to honor the King's special day. We also had a delicious feast fit for royalty that everyone enjoyed.

We hope that everyone has a lovely weekend celebrating the coronation. We would like to remind parents that we will be closed on Monday due to the Bank Holiday, and we look forward to seeing everyone back at nursery on Tuesday.

We have had new children start Nursery this term and have done really well during their settling in session.

Settling into nursery can be a big step for both children and parents alike.

We provide a warm and nurturing atmosphere, with friendly staff who are experienced in working with young children, can help children to feel safe and secure in their new surroundings. .

During settling in sessions, children are given the opportunity to play and learn in a supportive environment, with activities that are designed to promote their development and well-being. This might include sensory play, outdoor activities, music and movement, and creative arts and crafts.

Parents are also encouraged to be involved in settling sessions, as this can help to build a strong and positive relationship between the nursery and family. We provide regular feedback to parents about their child's progress, and involve them in discussions about their child's development and well-being.

Research has shown that positive experiences during settling sessions can have a significant impact on children's well-being and development.

Lots of our children have been allocated their School place this week, ready to Start in September. This is such an exciting time.

We have had lots of parents ask us about how they can support their child during this transition. Questions regarding writing their names, knowing their ABC's, being able to read etc.

The good news is your child doesn't need to be able to do any of these things before starting school. Preparation for school is much more about the everyday practicalities - skills that will enable your child to cope independently in the school environment and help them feel happy and relaxed.

Here are a few ideas to focus on over the Summer Term with your children.

* Read to them lots. Encourage a love of reading, to introduce new vocabulary and language.
* Talk with them lots. Encourage conversations about what they are interested in and the world around them. The natural learning that can occur daily through everyday conversations can have more of an impact than trying to formally teach them something.
*Prepare food with them. Cooking can really help foster a love of food. Weighing ingredients to support mathematics and mixing and cutting ingredients together supports their fine motor skills.
*Messy Play. This encourages childrens creative imagination, It also provides opportunities for them to hold pens, pencils and paintbrushes. Children dont need to go to school knowing how to write, but knowing how to hold and skillfully use mark making tools is key.
*Practice putting on their own coat and shoes. Wiping and blowing their own noses. To support and encourage their self care skills.
*Encourage children to drink water at home from a cup. Some schools don't have juice or milk available throughout the day.

These are just some of the things the children have had opportunities to do at nursery and skills they have been practicing. This will ensure they have a smooth transition to school and feel confident and ready for their next chapter.

If you have any questions please let us know.
