This morning our Caterpillar group went for a lovely walk to the food bank to drop off our collection. We collected 26.1kg worth of food and the children had a lovely time meeting the food bank workers and seeing what happens with the food we donated.

On Thursday 27th July 2017 we held a Peppa Pig charity day raise money for the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) ward at St. Peter’s Hospital. It was a fun-filled day full of Peppa Pig activities, cake sales, silent auction and we even had real live pigs come to visit! We were very lucky and received may generous prizes for our silent auction including Bockett’s Farm tickets, gym passes and a Leo Bancroft voucher. We also had Mandy Woodford from the Little Roo’s charity come to visit our 3-5yr olds and talk to them about the amazing work the NICU ward does. Amongst all the fun we were so happy to have raised a fantastic £500 which will be used to by more ‘nests’ for the NICU ward as they currently only have 1 of each size for the babies.

Dawny’s Day Care has recently completed a small re-vamp in their sensory room to make it more resourceful and beneficial for the children. The room is now fitted with lots of new fairy lights, sensory toys (including a lots of items for heuristic play) and a brand new fibre optic tree! The fibre optic tree is the main feature and focal point of the room and the children love it! The branches can be brought down to the children’s level for them to enjoy, explore and discover. The main purpose of the sensory room is to provide visual and tactile stimuli which will help encourage interactions and offer a retreat from the outside world. Not only can the environment be stimulating it can also create a calming and relaxing environment to help the children gain some quiet/rest...

All our children loved Bonfire Day/Night at the nursery. Our 3-5yr olds loved turning our cook, Susan, and kitchen assistant, Teresa, into human fireworks by spraying them with a variety of paints!! Our older children also enjoyed a small bonfire after afternoon tea with hot chocolate and yummy marshmallows, some of the staff also lit some sparklers to show the children. Our babies made an artificial fire and play with pretend fireworks! We hope you all enjoyed the fireworks...
