Trips & Outings
We have the luxury of being within a community which has lots to offer the children. As often as possible we will take the children on trips and outings. There is a wide breadth of experiences and learning opportunities to be utilised on trips to local parks, the library, pet shops, train station, fire stations etc.
We visit our local care home on the last Wednesday of every month where we get involved in Exercise Time, Singing and Arts and Crafts. We regularly visit the Alzheimer’s group where we sing and interact and we cook for the homeless shelter every Tuesday. We also have connections with a school for Orphans in Uganda, The Manager Emma has visited the school and now each year organises aid including clothes, books and toys – we keep in regular contact with the school and sponsor some of the children
A minimum of once per year we also organise large whole nursery outings which parents and carers are invited to attend, we travel together by coach to exciting places such as wild life parks, beaches, the zoo etc. Taking a picnic lunch, supplies and armed with cameras to capture memories of the day, we split into smaller groups and go off to explore! This is a fantastic chance for parents to get to know each other better, to see how your child interacts with staff and their friends and brings your presence into their nursery life.
