“Children demonstrate high levels of respect and thoughtfulness for each other, because staff consistently value and model these behaviours. The nursery is therefore, a happy place where children confidently explore their own interests….” (OFSTED Inspector)
“Children make excellent progress in their learning and development due to the exceptionally high standards of individual care given by the staff” (OFSTED Inspector)
Macmillan Week at Puddleducks
Thank you to all our wonderful Puddleducks parents and children who helped us to raise £269.20 this week for Macmillan Cancer Support. Puddleducks took part in the Macmillan ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event as well as holding a whole week of activities.
We have been looking at healthy eating and our Puddleducks have had a chance to feel, smell and taste lots of different types of yummy fruits and vegetables. During touch and taste sessions the children are encouraged to have a positive approach to trying healthy foods. Each fruit and vegetable is named, and then we have a go at touching, followed by describing, and exploring further by trying something funny e.g. using a banana as a phone.
