Today in forest school our pre-school children braved the wind & rain & got involved in caring for the environment as part of our eco-schools scheme.
The children participated in a litter picking walk through the forest & discussed how we should take care of the environment around us.
The children also enjoyed sitting around the camp fire to listen to the story ‘Seasons come, seasons go tree’ & afterwards discussed how the season has changed & it has become cold & windy & the trees have lost their leaves.
The children then ended their session with lunch around the campfire, today it was yummy hot dogs & chocolate crepes!
We recently achieved our Millie’s mark accreditation! This is a Quality Mark for nurseries where our employees working directly with children are trained in paediatric first aid. This has been awarded by National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) in association with the Department for Education and Millie’s Trust. You may have been aware that we have been working hard for a period of time to achieve this award, which acts as an indicator that we go above and beyond the minimum requirements to keep children safe and minimise risks and accidents.
We are delighted that our efforts have been rewarded and that we have achieved this very special award.
