If you received a letter inviting you to attend our Toilet Training workshop, then please ensure that you sign up in the office. This workshop is being led by the Children's Centre and will take place on Wednesday 2nd March at 9am and then again at 12.45pm. Toilet Training is an important developmental milestone for children; let's help them to reach it together!
Please sign up to attend our 'Fussy Eaters' workshop for parents and carers on Thursday 11th February at either 9am and 12.45pm. This will be led by 'Phunky Foods', who promote healthy eating and well-being.
In the cold Winter weather this week, we decided to warm ourselves up sitting around our Fire Pit! We learnt some campfire songs and even cooked corn on the cob and hotdogs. Please have a look at some of our photos.
Nathanael and his family have been practicing their numbers at home, through learning rhymes after being given a Home Learning Pack at nursery. This week we also taught our children how to make their own playdough and then we gave their parents the recipe so that they could make their own at home. Please check out other Home Learning Packs, which can be borrowed from the library!
Part of the Early Years curriculum is for children to recognise the urge to go to the toilet and to be able to self-manage their toileting needs, developing independence. Please talk to your child's keyworker if you require any support in Toilet Training your child and look out for our guidance and leaflets. WORKSHOP COMING SOON...
We have been creating our own clothes shop in our role play area, so decided to gather some inspiration from the real clothes shops in Thornton Heath! We even bought some clothes, used real money to pay and took our receipts back to nursery.
Stay and Play sessions will be starting at THNS from Wednesday 13th January from 9-10.30am, for children aged 0-5 years. These will be led by the Children's Centre and will run every Wednesday morning. Please ask the Nursery office for more information.
We all had a great final couple of weeks at THNS with our family Christmas decorations workshop, our Christmas performance and our Christmas parties. We even had a special visit from Father Christmas! Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from everyone at THNS. We look forward to seeing all of our children and families again on Tuesday 5th January 2016.
Children and families had a fabulous time today making decorations to celebrate Christmas. We made paper chains, tree decorations, stars and Christmas cards. The nursery is now totally covered in glitter! Thank you to all who came in to join our children today.
