At Innsworth, a Hedgehog has caused great excitement between the children and staff this month, where it has decided to make a home behind some shrubbery in the pre-school garden. The children have taken interest in the Hedgehog, some asking lots of different questions and many of the children coming to see if they can spot him! The staff have been following the children’s interest in the Hedgehog and they have given the children the opportunity to make hog houses and to leave food out for it. Carole, from our pre-school room, set up a trail camera in the garden so that the children have had the opportunity to see what the Hedgehog has been up too in the evenings.
All the children in the nursery have enjoyed some of the nicer weather that we have had; being involved in picnics in the garden, water play and kite making. The nursery has had some new small world figures; this has encouraged then children to extend their imaginative play, from being farmers to shop keepers.
What’s coming up in September
On Thursday 3rd September, we will be holding a pyjama day with hot chocolate and a small movie for the children, to raise money for local charity, Heat Heroes. This is also to raise awareness of International Day of Charity, a recognition of the significant roles that charities and other individuals undertake.
The week commencing 20th September is Recycle Week and to show a commitment to recycling, we want to raise awareness to the children about how important it is to look after our planet. We will be asking the children to bring in something that is recyclable that they can use as part of a craft activity.
Other important information
Jo is enjoying spreading her time overseeing the baby and tots room as 0-3 Lead. She is getting to know the children and introducing herself to the parents.
We have said bye to most of our pre-school children this month who are going to school and we wish them all the very best. The staff have been busy preparing for the new academic year and we would like to welcome all our new families that are starting with us in September.
I want to thank you for being patient regarding dropping your child off and picking your child up from nursery. I understand it can get busy at hand over/pick up time, having to wait at the baby room door or wait outside the side garden gate for your child. Handover and pick up time will continue this way for the foreseeable. If you do want to discuss your child’s development or anything else, then you can book an appointment with your child’s key carer, the room leader or contact me via email or phone and I can arrange this for you.
We do have an open-door policy and myself or the rest of the team are always available if there is anything that you want to discuss. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
