On Saturday 10th February Tempest Photographers will be at the nursery from 10am till 1pm. You are welcome to bring your child/children along to have their photograph taken. If you would like your child to have their photograph taken, please book a time slot in the office with Anne or Hannah. Siblings are welcome to join their brother/sister if you would like a family photograph taken. These would be ideal for Mother’s Day gifts. Tempest photography advise not to wear red to this photograph session.

Nursery Bag

If your child still requires nappies it would be appreciated if they have enough nappies and wipes in their bag or tray for the days they attend nursery. It is essential that if your child potty training that you bring spare clothes. All clothing and shoes should be labelled. Please can you ensure that you bring hats, scarves, gloves and wellies for your child to ensure they are wrapped up nice and warm when they go outside to play. Wet weather clothing will be provided.

Mobile Phones and Smartwatch Policy

Please can we remind parents with regards to the use of mobile phones and smartwatches on the nursery premises. At Bluebell Lodge we strive to ensure that all children are safeguarded, and we constantly review our practices. We kindly ask parents/carers to refrain from using their mobile phones/smartwatches, especially to take photographs on the nursery premises.


We are currently collecting buttons, purses, keys, shells, corks, old mobile phones, inside of kitchen rolls, jam jar lids, old CDs and children’s magazines.

We are currently creating some heuristic play bags. Heuristic play describes the activity of babies and children as they play with and explore the properties of ‘objects’. These ‘objects’ are things from the real world.
