Shop faked or home baked? You decide!!

Oooh, who doesn't love a good coffee morning???!! Buns, cake, cupcakes, brownies, croissants, shortbread, cookies and more sweet treats than you could eat in one week let alone one day!!

Some of our talented staff team will create such beautiful and tasty creations that you will not believe they are not full time patisserie chefs!!! And others will thoughtfully and with care select and buy such beautiful and tasty creations that you will not believe their generosity!!

Whether baked or faked these treats have your name all over them.... and as we are raising money for 2 fantastic Cancer charities, well it would simply be rude not to donate, indulge and enjoy!!

So please make a note in your diary - Friday the 5th of October. Must donate money, treat myself (and why not your colleagues?!) and should probably wear loose fitting clothes!



Our School and Nursery School leavers are getting ready for our awesome beach party taking place next Friday the 20th of July!!

Grab your armbands, sunnies, snap-back caps and practice your flossing because we have a DJ, party food, games, glitter tattoos and inflatable crocodiles all ready to go from 1pm!! See you there dudes!! 

Outdoor Classroom Day

17th MAY 2018

for all nursery and after school club children!! Pictures and activities will be shared on our website throughout the day so please keep an eye out!!!

Or if you simply can't wait......check out their website


Zip a dee doo dah!

When a generous person donates hundreds of Ziploc bags to the nursery, its time to get creative and thats exactly what we have done, so welcome everybody to our first challenge of 2018. The Ziploc Challenge!!

Every nursery staff member has been issued one Ziploc bag, one activity sheet and three observation sheets. Between now and our next staff meeting in March, they have been asked to devise, make, create, print etc a resource that is appropriate for the children in their room along with instructions on how this resource can be introduced, used and enhanced.

The team here at KCN are famous for both their creativity and their competitiveness so i cannot wait to see what they each come up with! And at the end of this challenge...our nursery will have 28 resource bags that can be used time and time again so its a win for everyone!!

Anyway, I better go and zip to it!
