Welcome to the second edition of our newsletter. So many exciting things have been happening at the nursery this month.
I would like to give a warm welcome to all our new parents and children who have started this month. I hope you are all settling in well. A big welcome to Jessica Edwards – as our amazing Toddler Room Leader.
Grand Opening Party
On the 12th November we hosted our Grand Opening Party in celebration of opening the nursery.
The children enjoyed lots of delicious treats, a lucky dip and face painting. We also had a balloon launch to mark the occasion. Thank you to all the parents/guests and children who came along to make it such a great day.
On Friday 18th November we held a Stay and Play Session in support of BBC Children in Need. Our staff made delicious cakes, we all wore spotty fancy dress, and enjoyed being decorated in spots. The children enjoyed getting involved in lots of spotty activities and going on a Pudsey Hunt in the outdoor area. We held a ‘How many sweets in the jar?’ competition and a raffle for our Children In Need Cake. A big thank you to every one who came along and for all your support. We managed to raise £49.10 on the day. Well done!
We plan to hold a Stay and Play Session every month at the nursery so keep a close eye on the dairy dates.
Our Topic: Farm Animals
At Monkey Puzzle Mitcham, we tailor our curriculum and planning to the children’s’ interests. As all the children have taken a keen interest in ‘Animals’-in particular ‘Farm Animals’, this has been our topic for the last few weeks. To inspire the children’s learning we transformed the Babie/Tweenie room role play area into a farm. The children have enjoyed exploring the farm and the various planned opportunities we have provided. They have also been engaging in a range of fun, messy and crafty animal related activities.
