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!
Over £1.8k raised. Thanks to everyone who donated their money and their time!!!!
CHILDREN IN NEED NURSERY CHALLENGE
We have set the challenge to all staff, children and parents to raise as much money as they can for Pudsey Bear over the next few weeks and already, ideas are flowing!!
With Pudsey prize bags, mini mudders, bounce-a-thons, sports days and chocolate quizzes.... the competition is on here at KCN!! Babies, Roses Room, Pre school children and our After School Club along with the management and admin team are busy thinking of ways they can not only raise money but finding creative ways of doing so!!
Keep an eye open next time you are in nursery and see whats going on between now and the 17th of November 2017 in all our rooms, get involved if you can and donate as much as you can!
Bring it on everyone!!
Lets go outside!!
The 18th of May was the International Outdoor Classroom Day and everyone at KCN embraced the wonder of outdoor play - despite the changeable weather! We enjoyed picnics, lots of creative and messy activities as well as resting beneath the willow walk and simply listening to the world passing us by!!
We are already thinking of ideas for next years day, but before then - here's some pictures of the fun we had in 2017!!
Tempest are in the house and they are offering professional photo's of your children done throughout the day. You can have single pictures, family groups or siblings together - just ask the helpful photography staff (and don't forget to smile!)
Yes, its that time of year again when its almost impossible to drop off or collect your children from nursery without spending a pound or two trying to win some yummy, scrummy chocolate eggs! We know its not the healthiest tombola we offer......but you can treat yourself once or twice a year, can't you?!!!
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm @ Rainbow Childrens Centre Hall
We welcome our new 2 year olds (along with their families, of course!) to this special stay and play session held at our neighbouring childens centre. The children can play together and enjoy our excellent soft pay area whilst the adults can fill in the required paperwork and become familiar with other new parents. During this session we will discuss your attendance patterns, agree a start date after some visit sessions as well as hand out your free nursery bag! We look foward to seeing you there
