Thanks so much for seeing us all today and for being so helpful! we are very excited for Frankie to start with you guys and she enjoyed herself and kept saying nursery afterwards 🙂🙂
Thought this could be a good idea. Measure kids on there first day starting with you. Then when they leave give these to the parents. One day they can unravel the string to see how small there kids were xx

THANK YOU 💕😊

We have had a fabulous last day at nursery. We have been dancing to lots of Christmas music and getting in the Christmas mood. We had a little bit of party food for snack today too and enjoyed a visit from some special visitors.

Thank you so much to everyone who kindly bought in gifts for the staff. They are very much appreciated 😘

Can we just take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support this year. It hasn't been an easy one but we got through it together. We couldn't be prouder of our children for coping so well under the circumstances.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year ⭐🎄☃️🎅💕 See you on the 4th January.

From all the staff at Merry Go Round ❤

NATIVITY INFORMATION AND CRAFT EVENING.

Good morning everyone, please read until the end for information about next Thursdays Nativity performance and Tuesday's craft evening.

At the moment, we are allowing parents in. We are monitoring the covid situation very carefully and will have some protective measures in place. These will be as follows:

- Only 2 parents are permitted to attend the Nativity. This is so as we can try our best to keep households socially distanced and numbers at a minimum.

- Hand gel will be in dispensers upon entrance. Please use these before entering the main room.

- We kindly ask that if you are able, please take a LFT before attending the Nativity.

- We are also kindly asking that all parents wear a mask, unless medically exempt. No proof needed.

If anyone has any signs of illness, regardless of how mild. Please stay at home. We are trying our best to ensure that children are not missing out on experiences this year but this involves us all working together to ensure everyone is as protected as possible.

If you are unsure whether your child will play their part in the am or pm performance, please message Jess.

We also ask that parents take (if they are able) LFT before attending the craft evening and wear masks whilst in the building.

If this situation changes, you will be notified immediately.

I hope you can all understand why we have had to put these measures in place.

Thank you for your cooperation.

We are having such alovely afternoon, we've put our wetsuits on and wellies and went in the garden with Katie and splashed in muddy puddles and then enjoyed measuring, filling and emptying water with jugs, cups, pans and furthering it we used drainers to make the water run through like rain comes down from the sky, we spoke about how it rained today and how cold the weather is and the sounds we can make together.

We enjoyed making our own Christmas light pictures with Julie and Katie. And during spoke about our own Christmas decorations at home.

Then we've enjoyed gluing and sticking with Laura and playing with dinasours with Beth.

For rolling snack we've had 🍊 orange and apple 🍎😋

Photos from Merry-go-round's post 06/12/2021

What a lovely start to the week, we've been exploring our new goggles and pulling funny faces at one another, we have been role playing being chefs and mommy's and daddy's, some of us created our very own Christmas lights picture, and we have built towers and learnt about our construction vehicles, and we found our mischievous elf hanging from the ceiling 🤣🤣....

Photos from Merry-go-round's post 06/12/2021

Good morning everyone 😁,
Todays child interest is based from some of the children talking about their Christmas tree and their lights they put on their tree. We furthered this interest through a fun and creative craft activity, using a variety of paint colours, glitter and sensory ball to dip into the paint and roll it over each child's chosen paper.

This activity encouraged fine motor skills, hand and eye co-ordination, communication & language, turn taking, sharing throughout.

05/12/2021

Don't forget your Christmas jumpers this week. We have been seeing lots of you wearing them already🎄

We still have some spaces left for our festive events week next week. If you would like to book your child in for an additional session, please speak to Jess.

Our Christmas party day will be on Friday 17th December where we will be joined by Mickey Mouse and Elf on the Shelf mascots.

We are absolutely loving to build a variety of structures with our magnetic Lego, along with being creative within the free painting station and exploring the puppet's and construction vehicles with our carers😁, just take a look......

Photos from Merry-go-round's post 29/11/2021

We've been talking about snow ❄️ and how ice is created🤩😍 we have used our senses to touch, smell and explore both. We found out that both are cold and snow melts quicker then ice does. We also spoke about how we can play safely in and with ice and snow, and what might happen if we don't play and explore safely with both. We've all have loved learning whilst playing outside with carers, Laura, Katie and Julie.

Within our indoors environment we have created cosy Dens and enjoyed looking at books, and explored the wooden cars with Zuzanna and Chelsea.

Our self selection tables we've been learning our colours and numbers together 😁.
And enjoyed the choice of apple and cucumber.

Happy 😁 Monday everyone, we've enjoyed our child interest activity with Katie today, creating our very own Christmas trees 🎄🎄🎄, our carers Katie and Julie decided to further our interests, about us all talking about putting up our Christmas trees over the weekend, through a fun and creative activity, using a vibrant green paint colour chosen by the children and a variety of glitter, whereby we all had choice to choose our own glitter to decorate our handprint Christmas trees 🎄😁😁😁 take a look at us enjoying our activity...

We've been amazing having our photos taken by the photographer today. We finished off our day with a story about Santa and his reindeers. Have a lovely weekend everyone x

We've had a great day looking at different foods from Poland. We learnt how to say 'Hello' in Polish. Make sure to ask us, we've been practicing really hard. Thank you Zuzanna for sharing a little about your culture and the AMAZING Poland 😄

Photos from Merry-go-round's post 24/11/2021

. 🇵🇱 P O L I S H T A S T E R D A Y 🇵🇱

. This is Zuzanna 👇🏼

She has been a valued member of our team since July this year following a long term student placement since 2019. Zuzanna was born in Poland, like a few of our fantastic children also and moved to England when she was 9 years old.

Zuzanna has been teaching us some Polish words recently and tomorrow we will be engaging in a Polish tasting session. We will be trying a variety of different foods and enhancing our knowledge on different cultures and traditions.

Here at Merry Go Round, we like to teach equality and diversity to our children every single day. This will also be a great opportunity for the children to develop a wider understanding of the world we live in and to experience the differences we share with other communities across the world.

Zuzanna - "My favourite part of Poland is the polish sea. I also love Kraków also known as as Cracow. Kraków is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Kraków was the official capital of Poland until 1596. Here are some photos of my recent visit."
