Remembrance Day

This Sunday marks 100 years since the signing of the Armistice bringing an end to the First World War. Across all our nurseries the children have been doing some wonderful activities to celebrate this and also to understand the significance of Remembrance Sunday. Parent’s have enjoyed getting involved with the activities too, bringing in pictures of loved ones that fought in the war and family members who still serve for our country now. What a great way to celebrate, remember them and ensure future generations understand its significance.

Autumn Fun at Cliffe House

All of our six settings are really enjoying lots of Autumn related activities at the moment. The children have been taking the Autumn scavenger hunt bags home and they have been finding some wonderful Autumn treasures which have stimulated different interests which are then sustained in their play at nursery. The Cliffe House Team have been very creative too in thinking of activities to extend and develop the children’s interests further. Great work everyone!

Mental Health First Aid Course

Today our senior management team attended a adult mental health first aid course run by Mental Health First Aid England. We recognise that as a company it is really important to help our staff to encourage positive mental health and to always support one another. The team have found the course invaluable so far and are looking forward to putting what they have learnt into practice across our Cliffe House Nurseries.

Featherbank’s New Pre-School Room Opening

Today is the first day of Featherbank’s new pre-school room being open. The nursery already has a downstairs pre-school room but we have recently extended the setting opening a pre-school room on the first floor too. The children have had a great first day and have loved exploring the new environment.

Autumn Scavenger Hunts at Baildon

The children at our Baildon setting have been enjoying going on Autumn scavenger hunts with their families. In the hallway there are some little scavenger bags for them to take home and then bring back filled with lots of Autumn goodies! This provokes the children’s interests and together with the staff they have been enjoying some wonderful activities with what they have found. What a lovely way to enjoy the outdoors.
