We reached the finals in the prestigious Nursery World Awards. This means our nursery group is officially one of the top five nursery chains in the country, according to the expert judges who shortlisted us for the Chain of the Year Award 2014, a major award in the early years sector.
Off we went to London on Saturday 27 September for the awards dinner at the The Brewery in the very heart of the City of London. There, we met the other finalists and were wined and dined until the big announcement was made.
So, a big thank you to all our staff – and our supportive parents and carers – who have made this possible. We offer our sincere congratulations to the winner, London Early Years Foundation (LEYF), in central London. But next year, we shall be bringing the trophy back with us to the Midlands.
We have been enjoying learning about Autumn throughout the nursery. Babies have been learning new words like leaves, crunchy and stamp. Toddlers have been learning about Autumn colours and light and dark. Pre-school rooms have been to the shops to buy food and made a hamper which they have given to the church when they attended the Harvest service.
All the children and staff have been wearing Pink for cancer research last week and made cakes. We would like to thank all families who donated towards our Pink week. The pre-school room have been getting active during their weekly Fizzy Tot’s sessions, learning about the effects of exercise on their bodies whilst having fun! The children are busy making Autumn pictures, leaf printing and going on Autumn walks, listening to the sound they can hear and collecting an array of Autumn objects such as leafs, conkers, acorns. The children are going to be celebrating Halloween at the end of the month and dressing up on Friday 31st October and our pre-school room will be having a Halloween party! Tiny Toez @ Biddulph are also starting a holiday club starting October half term. Places are still available. For more information/ to book a place, please contact Linda or Eloise on 01782 518405. Thank you.
