Your feedback is very important to us. If ever you wish to speak to Suzie about any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact her by phone or email.


Dressing for the cooler weather

With the cooler days here can we ask that Parents ensure that their children have a jumper/jacket and shoes to wear. We know sometimes children do not feel the cold like we do and don't want to wear a jumper or shoes and some mornings or afternoons do really feel cold enough for snow to be falling. Going out and playing in the fresh air, even in the coldest weather, can help build our immunity, we just all need to dress appropriately for it. Staff have been asked to ensure children have their jumpers and shoes on in the colder parts of the day.


Play and children's learning - Play is one of the main ways in which children learn. It helps to build self worth by giving a child a sense of his or her own abilities and to feel good about themselves. Because it's fun, children often become very absorbed in what they are doing. In turn, this helps them develop the ability to concentrate. Play is a way child can express their feelings even before they have the words to say how they feel. Children learn and develop their social and emotional skills though playing on their own, with other children and with adults

In play children are in charge of what they do. Being in control in play helps them to learn to manage their feelings.

When children make or build things in their play, they are building skills and confidence in themselves.

In play children learn about the give and take of relationships with their friends. They learn to lead and follow and to care for others.

Play helps children to think about what they want to do, to plan and to be patient.

Through play children learn how to mend mistakes and to feel better after things go wrong.

Indoor and outdoor play helps to reduce children's stress.

Play is a way child make sense of their world and practise for their future of being parents and workers.

Play is for imagination and creativity. In play you can enjoy magical worlds of joy.

Play is something children can own in a world where most things are organised by adults.

Play is a time when adults and children can have fun together
