100% First Aid Trained Staff

Image-1We have been awarded Millie’s Mark (new national award in conjunction with NDNA). The award recognises that we have 100% first aid trained staff (30 plus!) and that we have demonstrated excellence in putting paediatric first aid at the forefront of our care.

Millie the giraffe came to the nursery today to unveil the plague and ‘award’ our children with their own first aid certificates.

Halloween 2016

Wow! Our children have brought in some fantastic pumpkin creations! They have been decorating the nursery in readiness for their Halloween party on Monday and are really looking forward to having a spook-tacular time…….

Pre School scavenger hunt

Our Pre-schoolers had a fabulous outing to Hesketh Park on our Autumn scavenger hunt.

Police visit

Always on our best behaviour – especially when we get to meet our local police. Thank you so much to the officers who came in to see us.

New interactive whiteboard

It didn’t take these new pre-schoolers long to get the hang of our new interactive whiteboard. They were all mini experts within minutes.

Graduation Day

Thank you to all our parents and Pre-school children that came to nursery for their graduation. We were very lucky again with the weather which meant we had a fantastic celebration in the garden. It has been a privilege to watch your children grow and flourish with us and feel very lucky that we have had the chance to get to know some wonderful families. We are sorry to see them go but I’m sure they are all very excited about their next step going to ‘big school’. We would also like to thank everyone for their kind gifts, they are all appreciated by all the staff. Thank you again for a wonderful day.

Happy 90th Birthday Your Majesty

What better occasion or visitor? We loved celebrating The Queen’s special birthday. Thank you to all our parents for coming to our garden party, thank you to Miss Vicky for her great dance classes and thank you all our staff and of course our well behaved children who had a really great day!!

 

Lift Off At Last!

Do you remember the catastrophic attempt to send our seeds into space? Well if you want to jog your memory and watch the video take a look here.

Well this time, I want to report some good news!

On 2 September our rocket seeds were successfully launched into space, bound for their new home aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The seeds departed from Baikonur, Kazakhstan on Soyuz 44S – the flight that is delivering European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen and his crew to the ISS.

The rocket will dock tomorrow morning and the astronauts will unload the seeds and transfer them safely on board. They will remain on the ISS for several months and return to Earth with astronaut Scott Kelly, currently planned for March 2016.

We are all so excited and the children cannot wait to see the results of our lunar blooms in March.
