West End Nursery Update – October 2018

Our West End nursery would like to thank everybody for donating and joining us for our Macmillan coffee morning, we raised £84.37.

This week is Healthy Eating week, so the children will be trying a range of healthy fruits and vegetables throughout the week, and learning about the healthy eating plate.

Paddington Bears have recently been learning about the importance of recycling, and have created a recycling point. The recycling point has a food waste bin, plastics bin and paper bin, which have been introduced by playing the recycling game – choosing which bin each item should go into.

All the children have been continuing to enjoy cooking club this term, and have new and exciting recipes to try.

If you have any queries about any of the activities on offer please contact the nursery on 02380 466563.

Taking care of children’s teeth!

At Play Away we understand that a regular teeth-cleaning routine is essential for good dental health, which is why we include tooth brushing in all our play rooms after the age of 2!

Boogie Mites comes to Play Away!

Due to the recent success of our Boogie Mites sessions in our Elmer Elephants at Totton, we will be running Boogie Mites sessions at all three nurseries during the coming term. Boogie Mites are music and movement workshops for children aged 1-4 years ,during which the children take part in vocal warm ups; physical warm up and action songs; shaker songs; a themed section using stories, role play, musical exercises and songs to explore the world around us; percussion and then cool down time with nursery rhymes and teddies. The sessions last an hour, and promote the development of important neural pathways – “The evidence suggests that children who undertake music education from early years have higher levels of cognitive capacity (especially regarding language acquisition and numerical problem solving), tend to remain in education for longer, and earn more across their lifetime.” (Anita Collins, a researcher in neuroscience and music education at the University of Canberra, Sydney Herald July 2015)
