Easter Holiday Club - Fantastic success

April 20

Great reviews from the children and parents regarding the Easter Holiday Club. Canterbury scavenger hunt was an exciting challenge for the children that they thoroughly enjoyed, using their orienteering and observation skills to solve the clues and find the relevant objects.

Investing in People

March 2020

All staff will be attending a funky feet training workshop in order that daily music and movement sessions can be introduced within the settings activities. This is a fun way to engage and motivate children to move and develop both their body and brain. More information can be found on the Funky Feet website where parents can purchase music cds and books so they can join in with the fun at home.(

Why Maths Matters

March 2020

Maths in the early years gives our youngest children the opportunity to build foundations in knowledge and skills which will help them to become numerate, confident problem solvers.
If we do not teach children from a very early age to be confident in their mathematical development and learn skills and knowledge they need for a strong foundation maths, then they lose confidence maths, fall behind at school and have low numeracy skills as an adult. Visit our blog for information on how you can support your child at home.
