Shepherd Lodge Newsletter January 2019

Welcome back everyone, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

Nursery Awards

This year at our staff Christmas do, we had a special awards section. You may have noticed over November and December you may have participated in filling out a form explaining why you felt we or a staff member should be nominated for certain awards. Well we are so very proud to have received the Nursery of the Year for the second time running for 2018 and the Healthy living award. We are so proud to have received both awards. All the staff continuously strive to work hard to ensure positive relationships are built and maintained between themselves, the children and their families.

Outdoor Weather / Clothing

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.

Visits Lytham Lodge

At learning curve nursery, we are always looking for new and exciting adventures for the children to take part in to support their development in a variety of ways and we will be visiting our new sister nursery Lytham Lodge more over the next few months. A group of our pre-school and lower pre-school children will be able to go with Ben and Jake on the bikes to take part in a variety of different sport sessions and forest school sessions with our training manager Anne. There will be opportunities to visit Lytham hall and park view whilst also on our visit.
