Pre-school trip to the zoo

Yesterday our pre-school children went on a trip to Blackpool Zoo!
We had a lovely time seeing all of the animals and were especially excited to ride on the minibus and have a picnic.
Here are some pictures!

Sports evening

We would like to thank everybody who attended our Sports Evening and made it a grand occasion!

Building independence

Why is independence important?

Independence is about learning to do things for oneself, which includes making decisions and taking on responsibility. These are hugely important skills for children to learn to cope with in adulthood.

Building confidence - We know that when independence grows, a child's confidence also grows. As they master new skills or take on some responsibility, they begin to see themselves as being capable. This gives them added confidence and makes them more likely to try out new things.

 

YOU SAID, WE DID!

Parent's said our Holiday Club prices were too expensive, we listened and reduced the cost to £15 per day. 

Little acorns lending library

If you did not know, we have a 'Little Acorns Lending Library' situated in the entrance of nursery.
There is a selection of books and story sacks for you to take home and enjoy.

If there is a specific book you would like to borrow and it's not in the library, feel free to ask a member of staff.

Thank you!
