Oxford June News: Ducks, World Wellbeing Week and Children's Art Week

The Old Station Nursery Group - Creating Brighter Futures Together

A huge welcome back to all of our families who have returned throughout May and June!

The children have come back in full of energy and settled back into routine so well. We hope you have all enjoyed being back as much as we have. 

June news

June’s sunshiny weather, although with the added typical odd shower or too, has meant we have spent a lot of time outside in the garden making the most if it! The children have been drawing around their shadows, exploring the obstacle course equipment and made pets from leaves. We also had a duck visit our garden area, who stayed and played in the garden which was very exciting. The children also saw geese and theigoslings walk past our garden fence!

Nearly all of our baby room families have returned and have settled back into nursery routine without so much as a blink. We have been really proud of the way our youngest children have adapted to a drop off at the front door and the smiling faces that wave goodbye to mummy or daddy in the morning.  

Toddlers have also had an adventure over their first few weeks as they joined our pre-school room for the first few weeks back and loved exploring a different room. They too have come back to nursery so well!  

Pre-school have just loved seeing all their friends again and showing off their independence skills, particularly their ability to put on their own sun cream! Throughout World Wellbeing Week (22nd-26th June), pre-school have also practised meditating while tracing the lines of their fingers to engage with some time for relaxing.  

What’s coming up in July

In July, we are looking forward to celebrating ‘Children’s Art week’ from the 13th-17th July. Make sure you look out for all of our creations!  

Sadly, we have not been able to organise a graduation or goodbye yet for our school leavers. If the guidelines change before the end of August, we will hope to arrange something. If not, we will look into a reunion hopefully one weekend in September.  

Other important information

We are all hoping that July will be as sunny as June, so please do remember to bring in a sunhat that can stay at nursery for your child each day.
