Banana Moon Day Nursery

All Banana Moon Day Nurseries are family run, with the utmost emphasis and importance given to seeing everything from a parent and child's point of view.

Banana Moon Ashmore is owned by my mother Caroline and myself Charlotte. We opened the nursery in August 2016 after the birth of my first child. I could not find a nursery I was happy to put her in so we created our own.

Operating as usual

The children had been talking about the bin men which then started a conversation from a child about how mommy and daddy recycle โ™ป๏ธ at home ๐Ÿ 
Suki decided to set up a sorting activity for the children talking about each object and where they thought it should go ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ™

Hereโ€™s what our little Mini moons got upto yesterday๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ™

The children have been enjoying dinosaurs and small world so our team thought what better way to provide challenge for our little ones ๐Ÿฆ• ๐ŸงŠ

Lots of communication and team work was used during this activity giving children the chance to explore and think ๐Ÿ’ญ
It allowed them to be independent aswel as work together to free the dinosaurs ๐Ÿฆ– ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hereโ€™s what our parents say about us โ€ฆ.

โ€œIโ€™d like to say a massive thank you to laura, Beth, Mel and the rest of the team for making ourselves and our child feel so welcome over the last few months. I was hugely apprehensive about him starting nursery but I couldnโ€™t be more pleased with the progress and everything at Banana moon. The range of activities he gets to do is amazing and itโ€™s so clear heโ€™s having so much fun. Thank you for all your Patience whilst my child was settling in and we canโ€™t wait to see him progress furtherโ€

Having feedback is extremely important to us here at Banana moon Ashmore. We value and respect each and everyone one of our parents and receiving feedback helps us to be the early years professionals we are ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅฐ

Our Baby Moons are fortunate to have their own garden outdoor space to access regularly throughout the day.

Following on from the hair dressers in our full Moons the children have still been showing a keen interest in hair however moved onto colours ๐Ÿ’‡โ€โ™€๏ธ

The staff created masks with wool hair for children to cut and colour, the children were engaged for long periods of time mixing the colours and helping each other colour the hair ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

This then led to children colour mixing using a variety of resources to make different colours ๐Ÿ‘€

So who remembers Friday post from our full moons room ? ๐Ÿ”ฅ โ›บ๏ธ

The children had made a camp within the room and our staff had asked our parents to bring in camping related items ๐Ÿช‘ โ›บ๏ธ ๐Ÿ“–

This week so far the children have been enjoying exploring their camp and have added in sleeping bags, camp chairs and also a book about Bluey going camping โ›บ๏ธ

What a start to the week โญ๏ธ

We canโ€™t wait to share with you where the children take this next ๐Ÿ‘€

Engaging in play through childrenโ€™s interests is far more purposeful than sitting the children down and expecting them to listen for a long period of time, lots of language and communication has been observed throughout the day along with strong social interactions with their peers ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ™
