1 Year Anniversary
Can you believe this month is our 1 year anniversary! We are so amazed at how much Lytham Lodge has changed and how much the nursery has transformed since the beginning. The nursery is ever growing and has truly begun to make its mark within the community. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who have been on this journey with us and continue to as we finish off Lytham Lodges constructions.
We would like to invite all children to create their very own pumpkin for our 2019 pumpkin competition. There are prizes to be won. We can’t wait to see everyone creations all entries to be at nursery by Tuesday 29th October
If your child attends nursery on Thursday 31st October. They can dress up for Halloween. We will be having a special visit from Boo’s Zoo and having a Halloween party tea. We can’t wait to see all your fantastic costumes. This week you may have noticed our extremely big pumpkin. This pumpkin has been grown from a seed at Shepherd Lodges allotment. The pumpkin was hand picked by one of our lovely families.
Outdoor Play In Winter
Children of all ages enjoy and benefit from playing outdoors in all except the most extreme weather. Daily outdoor play is healthy and burns energy. It gives children an opportunity for a change of environment, a balance in play and routine, large muscle activities (gross-motor development). Even children who are mildly ill but active should go outside if the weather is not severe. Staff and children alike will feel refreshed when fresh air is part of the daily routine. Taking children outdoors daily, even in winter, can be a healthy part of their schedule, and is safe when clothing is appropriate. Now the weather is getting colder can you ensure that your child has a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves.
Learning Curve Holiday Club
Fantastic news! Learning Curve Holiday Club is now taking bookings for the October half term. The holiday club will run from Monday 21st October – Friday 25th October 2019 which will be held here at Lytham Lodge. We have lots of exciting autumn and Halloween themed activities planned, including treasure hunts, pumpkin carving, arts and crafts and themed outdoor games.
BBC Learning Day
This year we celebrated BBC music day at our local library. There we enjoyed some great nursery rhyme activities and an amazing music session. The children had so much fun engaging in activities with the library and also sharing nursery rhymes together.
We are currently collecting items for our role play area such as metal teapots, metal jugs, hats and handbags, as well as any old phones. This is to help support the children’s imaginative play and communication skills.
