Here are some of the lovely creative activities that our toddlers have been taking part in to celebrate the Queenโ€™s Jubilee.
They have been working hard modelling with clay to create some beautiful sparkly crowns โ€“ the children rolled out the clay, before cutting out the crown shape and then when the clay was dry, they painted and decorated their crowns!
They also finger painted some red, white and blue flags, made a mod roc queens head (with help from Zenobia) and practiced their scissor control and colouring by decorating more lovely crowns.
Well done everyone! ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ‘‘

The dandelion's children have been talking about dental hygiene. Using the toothbrush and model mouth the children took it in turns to brush the teeth to make them all clean. The children then talked about the importance of caring for their teeth, and what they use to brush their teeth with, and also when we should brush our teeth, in the morning, at night, after food.

Rising 3's have really enjoyed making some gingerbread biscuits this afternoon with our nursery cook Jo. Firstly we discussed all of the equipment and the ingredients that we would be using. The children enjoyed watching the dial move as we began to add the ingredients to the weighing scales, they concentrated very well indeed and have had lots of fun! ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Preschool children have had lots of fun making yummy jam tarts with Jo the housekeeper. She spoke to them about what ingredients they would need to make the pastry. The children then measured, poured, stirred and rolled the pastry, then using the pastry cutters cut it into circles and filled them with tasty strawberry jam. Yummy!

The children in Rising 3's created some beautiful Easter baskets yesterday. They filled them with some goodies, discussing the patterns on the little eggs and then using descriptive language to talk about other things they added. "This feather is so soft and fluffy" ๐Ÿ’—

Today we had a lovely surprise, a parent from the old hall school brought a hot air balloon to the school field! ๐ŸŽˆ
The children were so excited to watch as it went up in the air, although not too high as it was tethered. ๐Ÿ˜„

The younger babies had the best time yesterday afternoon!
They loved splashing the soapy water in the baby bath and tipping the water out of the stacking cups, as well as catching it too! ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ฆ

One of their favourite things was tipping water on themselves and on Soph and Louise too!

What a fantastic time. ๐Ÿฅฐ Lots of cute excited faces and some lovely babbling to express our excitement. ๐Ÿ˜

Our Toddlers have been planting sunflowers today! ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป
They used their fine motor skills to scoop up the compost into the pot, place the seeds in and put more compost on top.
We then watered them all. Once they have grown a little, we are going to put them outside into our planters and see which ones will grow the tallest.

The Dandelions children had great fun using their imaginations in the Gruffalo tuff tray, acting out the story together.
They also enjoyed making animal footprint pictures, after they had listened to 'The Rumble in the Jungle' book! ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ

Our Story

Daisy Chain Day Care is a family business, caring for children in Shropshire since 1989.
We have founded our company on a deep sense of caring for children, parents & staff; professionalism; an endeavour to offer quality child care at an affordable cost; and an involvement in wider child care matters within Telford and Wrekin Borough Council and Shropshire County Council. We accept children from 0โ€”5 years of age, Monday to Friday. Our sessions are either full day or a short day and are either full year or term time only.

We use a variety of approaches to aid childrenโ€™s learning, including Reggio Emilia,
Te Wha-riki, and Curiosity Approach. We believe in the Reggio Emilia philosophy that โ€œchildren should be allowed to explore and discover in a supportive and rich environment where the curriculum is created round the childrenโ€™s interests.โ€ We value our partnerships with parents and carers and endeavour to build trusting and confidential relationships where the needs of the children come first.

Daisy Chain at Old Hall is a purpose built nursery, situated within the Old Hall Preparatory School which opened in 2006 in the grounds of Wrekin College.

The older children have a uniform which is both comfortable and durable and has been chosen to compliment the Old Hall School uniform. Whilst we hope that parents will choose the Old Hall School as the next stage of their childโ€™s development, there is no requirement to do so.

The nursery has superb facilities including four main, light and airy rooms for the children which all have direct access to the outdoor play areas. We are fortunate to also have access to the Old Hall facilities, including the hall for activities that require a large indoor space, and the onsite swimming pool. We have close links with the school. The children join the lower school for joint celebrations through music , songs and words of Harvest and Christmas. We are also lucky to have teacher participation with our older children. The younger children have their own outside space, away from the older childrenโ€™s outside classroom and play area. We have some beautiful wooden outdoor equipment, including a mud kitchen.
