Graduation

We celebrate the big move to primary school with a special graduation ceremony each year—caps, gowns, the works!

Christmas Shows

We celebrate Christmas by putting on a wonderful Christmas show for friends and family each year. There's always much excitement in preparing for the show as we learn songs and organise our special dress ups.


Community Outings

Our nursery enjoys great ties with our local community and we are often out and about visiting local sights and getting involved in events. We also take some of the children to the local sheltered housing group where we go singing a couple of times a year for them.

Fundraising Activities

Taking part in fundraising activities helps children to learn about others that are less fortunate than themselves and understand how we can help them. We participate in a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. We do a week of different activities around Red Nose Day and Children in Need Day so that all of the children can join in with the event. We also take part in Barnardo's Big Toddle and support Macmillan Big Coffee Mornings.


Special Festivals

The children also take part in different festivals throughout the year, e.g. Chinese New Year, Burns Night, Halloween and Christmas, where we will explore the traditions they involve through lots of fun activities, dress ups and song!

Tesco Eat Happy Farm to Fork Trails

Farm to Fork Trails provide the opportunity for children to visit Tesco stores and suppliers to gain hands-on experience to learn about where their food comes from. We participate in this project to give children the tools they need to make informed decisions about what they put on their plates when they grow up.

Eco Schools

Eco Schools is a the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is designed to encourage action on sustainable development education issues. Our children love getting invloved in their Eco Schools projects and learning about how to help protect the environment.

Settling In Sessions

Our nursery offers settling in sessions. Parents can bring their child for a couple of hours first, gradually introducing the child to a new environment. Settling in sessions are helping your child to adapt to the surrounding and become more familiar with the staff and other children.
